I have the following issue: I want to configure a computer to act as a NAT server for a small network i have (about 30 machines). I need some of them to connect to Internet. I have been searching info about NAT and i read that this protocol has routing capabilities, is that true? If not i guess i should get a router which is the obvious choice but i also want to test some algorithms i've been working on (that's a whole other issue) and i wanned to do it in a router because they are Active Queue Management algorithms. Anyways, does a NaT server handles queue management also?
I think it doesnt but im not really sure, that's why i ask :P
