port forwarding

can anyone tell me why i would use this, Is this used with PAT, i.e if im hosting a web server, mail server at home etc, on my router I would simply point these ports to the ip of the servers etc ?

Re: port forwarding

So I gather you can NAT and PAT to the same public ip address ? also whats the extenable command used for ?

Re: port forwarding

Hi

Yes you can based on the requirements in the network.

i mean PAT here as static port translation here which u do for enabling the access to the static servers kept in ur local lan.

The same will be accessed on those ports which will be mapped with the public ips port..

Obviously you do NAT too in the same case thats is your private subnet space ip to one public ip space to give the access.

If you have the server simply in the private network space it wont be accessible from outside public world..

also refer this link for more queries on NAT...
