When do we use NAT No Alias

Unanswered Question
Jul 4th, 2007

Hi,

Can someone explain what is the meaning of nat aliasing and when do we use nat no-alias command.

I could not understand the notes given in cisco docs clearly.

So any example would be helpful.

Thanks,

Radhika

I have this problem too.

I meant with respect to a router.

Thanks,

Radhika

when we enable nat with aliasing and the global address is an unused ip from attached subnet then the ip appears in the alias table which is used for replying arp requests.

Still not clear when we use no-alias option.

Any clarification would be appreciated.

Got some notes from the below links.
