These are two different things.

isakmp nat traversal allows for VPN client traffic to be transported using the NAT-T feature.

nat exemption is what we use to not-NAT traffic that is sent over a VPN tunnel.

Hi

Just to expand on previous post.

Nat-traversal is needed when there is a device that sits somewhere in the path between your VPN devices that performs NAT on the packets.

Nat exemption is used to make sure that certain IP addresses are not subject to NAT and are left as is.
