NAT

Hi,

Could a packet traverse more than one static NAT translation? I mean, can one packet first be natted statically on a router and than forwarded to another router that nat statically it again?

I hope I've been clear enough.

please could anyone help me?

thanks a lot in advance

bye

Re: NAT

Yes, and often does. One packet can undergo many translations between source and destination. This can make for challenging troubleshooting, but is common when 2 organizations connect and need to avoid address conflicts, or want to hide their internal addressing. Each router processes packets based on it's own NAT and routing configuration with no way of knowing that the packet may have been NAT'd by the previous hop router.
