I dont have a lab right now to lab it up, so I need some expertise...


with the statement


ip nat inside source static network 10.0.0.0 3.0.0.0/24


any address on the 10.0.0.0 network will get NATed to an address on the 3.0.0.0 network, correct?


But how are the 3.0.0.0 address allocated? In numerical order?


Thanks

In NAT using the static and network combination the host bits of the source address are mapped directly to the bits of the translated address. So if you had address 10.22.33.44 it would be translated into 3.22.33.44.

O, OK..


So, its just a one for one then...


So, you would really use this when you want to make a sweeping NAT of an entire network, right?
