Hello fellow ciscoers,
My question relates to the use of the netmask command within the PIX/ASA. When used does this only translate the appropriate bits in the original ip address to the desired NAT address? For example:
If configure as follows:
static (inside,outside) 192.168.100.0 220.127.116.11 netmask 255.255.255.0
Then i send a packet with a source IP of say 192.168.100.50 through, then will the NAT address end up as 18.104.22.168.
Hence with a netmask of 24 bits will it not translate octect 4, and hence leave my "host bits" alone?
Thanks to all in advance
