EIGRP and NAT

Hi,


I have question about NAT and routing NAT-ed address over EIGRP. If i NAT source host on Router A, Router B will see this network as it is and i would like it to learn NAT-ed address so it can return packets for it withaout static routes. Is this posible?

Not clear exactly what you mean. Do you mean you want Router B to see 172.16.200.2 address without having to add a static route for it ?


If so, simplest solution is to create a loopback interface on Router A from same subnet and advertise with EIGRP eg.


Router A


int loopback 10

ip address 172.16.200.1 255.255.255.0


router eigrp 1

network 172.16.200.0 0.0.0.255

Hi Jon,


Yes this is workaroud but if i have more subnets learned on Routera A and they are translated than i would have more Loopback interfaces or class B interface.


for excapmle NAT


10.221.31.231/24 --> 172.16.31.231

10.221.224.9/29 -->172.16.200.3

10.221.224.65/29 -->172.16.200.4

10.221.225.9/29 -->172.16.201.5

10.221.226.65/29 -->172.16.201.6

10.221.46.231/24 -->172.16.46.231


Then i would have to make Loopback Interface with calss B, is there any other way to do it?

You need to get the Natted IP subnets into the EIGRP routing table. So you can


1) have static route for each subnet on Router A and redistribute into EIGRP


2) As previously suggested - create loopbacks.


Could you perhaps plan your IP addressing of the NAtted subnets so you use just one loopback interface - remember you are never going to be routing to that interface


OR


int loopback 10

ip address 172.16.1.1 255.255.0.0


router eigrp 1

network 172.16.0.0


this would as you say allow you to use any 172.16.x. subnet altho i would recommend using a subset of 172.16.0.0 rather than the whole thing.
