How to configure NAT Transparency
The IPsec Network Address Translation (NAT) Transparency feature introduces support for IPsec traffic. This support allows IPsec traffic to travel through NAT or Port Address Translation (PAT) points in the network. This is done when you address many known incompatibilities between NAT, PAT, and IPsec.
IPsec NAT Transparency delivers these benefits:
Simplified deployment eliminates the need to know that NAT and PAT devices exist between the two IPsec end points.
IPsec NAT Transparency enables a complete IPsec VPN solution. NAT and PAT devices are now effectively transparent. All IPsec VPN features are available to the customer during the design and deployment of an IPsec VPN solution.
It depends on the client with which it exchanges data, and the VPN Concentrator can simultaneously support standard IPsec, IPsec over Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), NAT-T, and IPsec over User Datagram Protocol (UDP). When enabled, IPsec over TCP takes precedence over all the other methods.
