Connection limits when static natting a subnet

Unanswered Question
Aug 22nd, 2008


The device I'm implimenting static NAT on in this instance is an FWSM running 3.1

I want to know, if I static NAT a subnet as opposed to a host, and I want to impliment connection limiting and embryonic connection limiting, will the connection numbers apply to the whole NATted subnet or just individual host IPs within that subnet (I'm hoping for the latter!).

So, for example: static (inside,outside) netmask 1000 20

Does that mean 1000 total connections 20 embryonic for the /24 for or each host within the /24.

Hope that's clear, and thanks for any replies!



I have this problem too.
