Usage of external DHCP on SSL VPN

Hello all,
I want to use external DHCP on my SSL VPN.
I found the following on the internet:
config system interface 
edit ssl.root
set dhcp-relay-service [enable|disable]
set dhcp-relay-ip next

Only with these settings, it's not working.
I think there is also a configuration need on VPN SSL web portal or VPN SSL setting or I have to assign an IP on the interface ssl.root
Does anyone here know about this?
Can someone give me the winning tip?

    This is a frequent trap - dhcp configs under ssl.root interface are there ... but they do not work.
    May be in 7.0 it is different but for 6.x train it is possible for VPN SSL only if you use RADIUS for authentication and then your RADIUS server will allocate each user own IP address. Any other case - it is only VPN SSL pools on Fortigate or IPSec VPN (also part of FortiClient) - there you CAN use external DHCP server.
