CCNA NAT SIM Question 2
|You work as a network technician at 9tut.com. Study the exhibit carefully. You are required to perform configurations to enable Internet access. The Router ISP has given you six public IP addresses in the 198.18.32.65 198.18.32.70/29 range.
9tut.com has 62 clients that needs to have simultaneous internet access. These local hosts use private IP addresses in the 192.168.6.65 – 192.168.6.126/26 range.
You need to configure Router1 using the PC1 console.
You have already made basic router configuration. You have also configured the appropriate NAT interfaces; NAT inside and NAT outside respectively.
Now you are required to finish the configuration of Router1.
Note: If you are not sure how NAT & PAT work, please read my Network Address Translation NAT Tutorial. You can download a similar sim to practice here: http://www.9tut.com/download/9tut.com_CCNA_NAT_sim_question.zip
The company has 62 hosts that need to access the internet simultaneously but we just have 6 public IP addresses from 198.18.32.65 to 198.18.32.70/29 => we have to use NAT overload (or PAT)
Double click on PC1 to access Router1′s command line interface
Create a NAT pool of global addresses to be allocated with their netmask (notice that /29 = 248)
Router1(config)#ip nat pool mypool 198.18.32.65 198.18.32.70 netmask 255.255.255.248
Create a standard access control list that permits the addresses that are to be translated
Router1(config)#access-list 1 permit 192.168.6.64 0.0.0.63
Establish dynamic source translation, specifying the access list that was defined in the prior step
Router1(config)#ip nat inside source list 1 pool mypool overload
This command translates all source addresses that pass access list 1, which means a source address from 192.168.6.65 to 192.168.6.126, into an address from the pool named mypool (the pool contains addresses from 198.18.32.65 to 198.18.32.70)
Overload keyword allows to map multiple IP addresses to a single registered IP address (many-to-one) by using different ports
The question said that appropriate interfaces have been configured for NAT inside and NAT outside statements.
This is how to configure the NAT inside and NAT outside, just for your understanding:
Router1(config-if)#ip nat inside
Router1(config-if)#ip nat outside
Before leaving Router1, you should save the configuration:
Router1(config)#end (or Router1(config-if)#end)
Router1#copy running-config startup-config
Check your configuration by going to PC2 and type:
The ping should work well and you will be replied from 192.0.2.114
