If you're a network manager or administrator eager to embrace network address translation (NAT) as a security and connectivity solution, yet are wary of its temperamental reputation, Bill Dutcher's roadmap to NAT strategy is for you. Drawing on his practical addressing experience at one of the world's largest ISPs, Dutcher provides all the information you need to evaluate NAT's suitability for your network, implement and manage it, and justify its use.You'll find clear explanations of NAT techniques, advantages and disadvantages, as well as how to deploy it with different technologies-from routers, firewalls, and proxies to VPNs.

* How NAT works to translate IP addresses from private to public domains
* NAT solutions in connectivity, routing, load balancing, and security
* Why NAT interferes with certain applications and how to overcome these problems
* Static or dynamic NAT-which is the right method for your situation
