Normally pools are mainly used for dynamic ip assignment in that case the ip assigned to a host will not be the same and the ip from the pool will be assigned based on the availablity of the free ips in the defined pool.
So the best thing to happen for the servers which all are hosting webservices,mail,FTP etc., should be done with Static NAT to avoid any kinda discrepencies later once its put into service..
That again depends on the availability of public ips with you in your network.
If you have enough public ips to spare for different servers then you can plan for one to one natting but if you dont have enough ips to spare then better host different services using the NAT option based on the PORT numbers.(single public ip hosting different services on different port numbers natted to the induvidual server ips with the respective port numbers on which the services are hosted)
excellent, I think im with you on that one, So basically we would only use the nat with port number option if I only have 1 ip but want to use multiple servers running different services ?, whereas if I have say 2 public ip's I could just nat my web and mail server to the 2 different public ip's ?
with the ip nat pool, how long is it before the entry is cleared, I gather it has a timer, say if im surfing the web the natting must remain constant, if it sees no traffic after a certain period does it release the nat ?
Do find the different default time out values associated with the translation and also the ways to tweak the same accordingly as per our requirement..
timeout Specifies that the timeout value applies to dynamic translations except for overload translations. Default is 86,400 seconds (24 hours).
udp-timeout Specifies that the timeout value applies to the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port. Default is 300 seconds (5 minutes).
dns-timeout Specifies that the timeout value applies to connections to the Domain Name System (DNS). Default is 60 seconds.
tcp-timeout Specifies that the timeout value applies to the TCP port. Default is 86,400 seconds (24 hours).
finrst-timeout Specifies that the timeout value applies to Finish and Reset TCP packets, which terminate a connection. Default is 60 seconds.
icmp-timeout Specifies the timeout value for Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) flows. Default is 60 seconds.
pptp-timeout Specifies the timeout value for NAT Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) flows. Default is 86,400 seconds (24 hours).
syn-timeout Specifies the timeout value for TCP flows immediately after a synchronous transmission (SYN) message that consists of digital signals that are sent with precise clocking. The default is 60 seconds.
