Home > ICND1 – NAT/PAT


December 2nd, 2016 in ICND1 100-105 Go to comments

Note: If you are not sure about NAT/PAT, please read my Network Address Translation NAT Tutorial.

Question 1


Port Address Translation (PAT) can support thousands of users connect to the Internet using only one real global IP address. With PAT, each computer will be assigned a separate port number so that the router can identify which computer should receive the return traffic.

Question 2


The keyword “overload” specifies we are using NAT Overload (PAT) in which multiple internal hosts will use only one IP address to access external network resources.

Question 3


On the interface connecting to the Internet of the router we have to use the command “ip nat outside” for NAT to work. It identifies that interface as the outside interface.

    Passed my ICND1 last Friday 28th 🙂
    – Lot of subnetting
    – OSPF (neighborships)
    – NAT & PAT
    You don’t need to configure, but you do need to troubleshoot
    SHOW commands are a must.
    Thanks 9tut and good luck to the rest of you 9tutters

    These are the only NAT PAT questions seen on ICND1 exam?

  15. Oshikuru
    August 21st, 2014

    Not understanding question 1. It is assumed that a private network is using private ip addresses, which are not routable through the internet, therefore the router can keep the same address, though the second part of that answer seems correct.

    Maybe D?

    I’m with you, Oshi, private address won’t get routed thru the Internet. Unless by saying PAT, they are saying you are using NAT/PAT overload, in which cause the private address does get change to a valid registered address. My answer for that question would be E, it doesn’t get on the net. Not with a private address in the socket.

  24. Gns3
    April 13th, 2015

    Reading over again, and I can see why A would be right. Nothing it’s said that the computer actually get onto the Internet, it just says what the router would do. Once the router sends the packet to the net, the next hop will drop the packet.

  25. Mundstick
    April 23rd, 2015

    My understanding of that question Gns3 is that the IP address it is referring to is the routers public IP address. That is paired with a port number and the two together map to the private IP address of your PC.

    However seeing as I am only studying I could be completely wrong 🙂

    anyone tell me –
    I seen a question on the test about the Internet facing ….
    is it Global, outside… Inside, or something else.

    It was the very first question on the exam. I am not sure as it was a very generic question.
    I believe it was talking about the interface that was facing the Internet – Which is ip nat outside

    or what is the outside network called when facing the Internet – Which is Global ?

    If anyone knows the exact question or what I am talking about – please advise.

    Question 1 and 2 was on the exam

    When configuring NAT, the Internet interface is considered to be what?
    A. local
    B. inside
    C. global
    D. outside
    Answer: D
    On the interface connecting to the Internet of the router we have to use the command “ip nat outside”
    for NAT to work. It identifies that interface as the outside interface.

    How is this possible when learning about nat they give you definition about

    | NAT |
    Inside Local | Router | Inside Global Outside Local/Global

    @ 8 february 2017:
    answer D is the only correct one. The question specifies “When configuring NAT” so this is relevant only to the configuration.
    Furthermore it says “the Internet interface” the word interface specifies the NAT-interface configuration: there are only two possibilities:
    1) ip nat inside : specifies the interface connected to the network that is needing translation (local)
    2) ip nat outside : specifies the interface connected to the network outside; usually the internet/ISP
    Hopefully this help
