The Basics of Configuring and Using Cisco Network Address Translation

The Basics of Configuring and Using Cisco Network Address Translation


This white paper describes the process of changing the identity of a private host to a legal public host, known as Network Address Translation (NAT). Routers are commonly used to implement NAT in small- to medium-sized offices and networks in which a separate firewalling solution is not possible.

This resource explains the fundamentals of Cisco NAT, including the following topics:

  • Defining NAT and Port Address Translation (PAT)
  • Configuring Static NAT and Dynamic NAT
  • Configuring PA
  • Troubleshooting NAT/PAT
  • And more

There are few, if any, networks in the world that do not implement NAT/PAT for IPv4. Access this resource for a better understanding of how to design, implement, and troubleshoot NAT, all of which are critical skills for network engineers.
