Making the Internet your own private network(!)

So what happens if, in creating an ACL, you reversed the order and put the ip nat inside command on the serial port and put the ip nat outside command on the fast ethernet port? My book said the results would be unfortunate, but it never specified what specifically would happen. Would you redirect all Internet traffic to your personal network? :P Just curious if anyone has ever seen this happen.

    All private addresses are blocked on the internet. So your private address you put on your interface wouldn't go past your ISP.

    Even if the ISP is lame and forgot to drop all RFC 1918 addresses there would never be a route back to your host so it is worthless.
