Hi Everyone,

The Sybex Book for CCNA does not mention a great deal on NAT/PAT, except just explain what it is and how it theoretically works. Do other books mention how to implement it on the routers themselves??

Also if anyone has a website link to any good NAT/PAT info where they demonstrate how its implemented I'd appreciate it very much. Thanks.
Im a newbie.... please be easy on me.

    Check out the following document at, including the links listed under 'requirements'. The actual configurations are more important for the BSCI CCNP exam but are good examples.

    One of the simulator configuration questions I got was to configure NAT--which I'm really pissed about. I studied NAT, but not well enough to do a full-on configuration. I failed the exam with a 775, and I felt like I was fully prepared. Sucks balls. Anyway, point is, learn NAT and learn it well, you might get a sim question on it. The above links look like pretty good references.

    Sat the single exam last Friday. Failed 730.
    2 labs - configure NAT to allow a subnet of users internet access;
    troubleshoot OSPF for a 3 site/router.

    Messed them both up - If I am honest I know the concepts and the general commands but its the details that will make the difference.

    I have sat the exam once before (november 2004 - 650 - not enough prep) and in my opinion this exam was a lot harder.

    You will find stuff on NAT in CCNA ICND Self study Cisco Press by Wendell Odom on Chp 8 (advanced TCP/IP topics). I have raced through it but I dont know what the NAT question really focuses on.
