I'm trying to work out what this config is achieving, this is a config from an 1841 that links to a LAN (LAN port) and a 1811 router (outside port) on a remote network.
Why is there a NAT that starts and ends on the same range?
description *** LAN INTERFACE ***
ip address 192.168.8.1 255.255.255.0
ip nat inside
description ** OUTSIDE INTERFACE TO 1811 Router **
ip address 10.152.1.226 255.255.255.224
ip nat outside
ip route 170.x.x.0 255.255.0.0 10.152.1.225
ip route 192.168.8.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.8.254
ip http server
ip http authentication local
ip http timeout-policy idle 600 life 86400 requests 10000
ip nat pool Servers 10.152.1.230 10.152.16.230 netmask 255.255.255.224
ip nat inside source list 103 pool Servers overload
access-list 103 remark Servers
access-list 103 permit ip 192.168.8.0 0.0.0.255 188.8.131.52 0.0.255.255
I Hope you can explain this config for me.
