When do we use NAT No Alias

Hi,

Can someone explain what is the meaning of nat aliasing and when do we use nat no-alias command.

I could not understand the notes given in cisco docs clearly.

So any example would be helpful.

Thanks,

Radhika

Re: When do we use NAT No Alias

when we enable nat with aliasing and the global address is an unused ip from attached subnet then the ip appears in the alias table which is used for replying arp requests.

Still not clear when we use no-alias option.

Any clarification would be appreciated.

Got some notes from the below links.

When you configure NAT with a

When you configure NAT with a VRF-enabled interface address that acts as the global address, you must configure the ip nat inside source static no-alias command. If the no-alias keyword is not configured, Telnet to the VRF-enabled interface address fails.
