Configuring NAT - NAT with route-maps

Fourth post in this NAT series is the 'NAT with route-maps'. In my opinion, using route-map to manipulate NAT is a fairly advanced topic. Therefore make sure to do plenty of labs and read up on docs to understand the concepts. With that being said, let's get started.

Topology we will be using.

Configuring NAT - Dynamic NAT with PAT

Third post in this NAT series is "Dynamic NAT with Port Address Translation". Port Address Translation (PAT) works by translating not just the IP address but the ports associated with the connection. It was mainly created to allow many-to-one NAT, so a single public IP can be shared between 1000s of hosts.

Topology we will be using is similar to the ones from my previous posts on this series.
