Kindly confirm the below:
i) Is the AUX and Management port used for the same purpose?
ii) In the diagram can terminal A server connect to the management port of the switch i.e. 192.168.0.1 via putty. The reason this is being asked is because since the Terminal server A is in 192.168.5.1 subnet and suppose it receives an advertisement for path to reach 192.168.0.x subnet, the point out here remains that the management port does not have a default gateway so what about any acknowledgement path for the return traffic for TCP traffic.
iii) In case the WAN link fails, kindly confirm on the way we could reach the switch via the management port.
In our environment, we use an OoB server to verify the power status of device in a remote location by dialling into the same in case the primary connectivity via the WAN fails.
Need to understand in that case the configuration or the physical connectivity of the OoB server would be via the AUX or the management port?

The is an excellent article on NAT-T.
In the above example, we understand that the client 192.168.1.5 is trying to establish a connectivity to the server 10.0.1.5 over port 80 i.e. as per the interesting traffic defined.
I would really appreciate if the below points could be cleared:
Datagram flow with IP and port modifications when 192.168.1.5: 10000 tries to establish connection to 10.0.1.5:80
NAT-T functionality in case we have overlapping subnets wherein we have to NAT the traffic at one end before sending it to the other.
@Experts: Please help.
