has anyone tested the PAT (NAT for LAN-to-LAN tunnels). In the documentation i can?t find a hint if the Translated network should be one IP or can be a range. The only point i can find is this:

PAT LAN-to-LAN NAT rules are Edenic rules with Port Address Translation.

What is a Edenic rule ?

Thanks for any help/hint !

  • Cisco Employee,


I have done this configuration in the lab and it works.

So, here's the scenario - lets say when the remote network is 10.10.10.x/24 - your local network is 20.20.20.x/24 and you want the local network to be translated as

Then here are the things you would add on the NAT translation section.

Select PAT.

Local Network: WCM:

Translated Address: WCM:

Remote Network: WCM:

On the LAn to LAN section when you configure the Local and remote work, your local network would be WCM: and remote network would be WCM:

WCM - Wild Card Mask

Hope this explains what you are trying to do.

Hi Gilbert,

thanks for your answer !

I have some additional questions:

- I assume you tried to use this PAT with several internal clients, my installation failed after the second client is trying to use PAT.

-Have you tried to use several IPs for the PAT, for example Translated Address WCM: ?

- Do you know what edenic from the documentation means ?

- What version are you using on the concentrator ?
