I have a setup in which the NATing will be done as follows:

Inside Local =

Inside Global =

Now the requirement is as follows:

When the clients will initiate a traffic the source IP address will be changed to the

Now in my environment there are number of clients those will access the clients on my internal network and they will have the Dest IP address as

Can i achieve the task that the for IP address the Nating is done in both directions?




Re: NATing on Source and Destination Address.

When source nating is done the reverse translation is automatically taken care. Meaning when some one access

it is automatically translated to . But should have been translated to at least once. This translation should be present in the NAT table of the router.

Re: NATing on Source and Destination Address.

My question was that if there is not NAT entry in the router for that IP Address than what will happened?

Will NATing still be performed or Router will drop the packet?

Re: NATing on Source and Destination Address.

I believe that if you have a static nat entry on the router eg ip nat inside source..., then the translation will work in both directions regardless of who starts the conversation.
