Configures NAT pool of IP addresses

Define a range of IP addresses hidden from the public Internet. NAT modifies network address information in the defined IP range while in transit across a traffic routing device. NAT only provides IP address translation and does not provide a firewall. A branch deployment with NAT by itself will not block traffic from being potentially routed through a NAT device. Consequently, NAT should be deployed with a stateful firewall.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000


address [<IP>|range <START-IP> <END-IP>]


address [<IP>|range <START-IP> <END-IP>]
address <IP> Adds a single IP address to the NAT pool
range <START-IP> <END-IP> Adds a range of IP addresses to the NAT pool
  • <START-IP> – Specify the starting IP address of the range.
  • <END-IP> – Specify the ending IP address of the range.
