Globally enables Network Address Translation (NAT).
|ip||Specifies Internet Protocol (IP).|
|nat||Specifies enabling NAT.|
NAT maps IP addresses from one address domain (typically private IP address space) to an another address domain (typically a public Internet IP address space) to provide transparent routing to end hosts. This translation is accomplished transparently by having a NAT device translate the IP address and/or Layer 4 port of the packets.
To view IP NAT information, run the command show ip nat.
The following example enables IP NAT:
# enables ip nat
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 31.2.
This command is available on the switches that support the IP NAT feature. For information about which switches support this and other features, see the ExtremeXOS 32.2 Feature License Requirements document.
