Nat Sim

June 24th, 2011 in LabSim Go to comments


A network associate is configuring a router for the TUT company to provide internet access. The ISP has provided the company six public IP addresses of The company has 14 hosts that need to access the internet simultaneously. The hosts in the company LAN have been assigned private space addresses in the range of –

The following have already been configured on the router:

– The basic router configuration
– The appropriate interfaces have been configured for NAT inside and NAT outside
– The appropriate static routes have also been configured (since the company will be a stub network, no routing protocol will be required.)
– All passwords have been temporarily set to “cisco”

+ Use NAT to provide Internet access to all hosts in the company LAN.
+ Name the router TUT
+ Inside global addresses:
+ Inside local addresses: –
+ Numer of inside hosts: 14



Note: If you are not sure about NAT or Access list, my read my NAT tutorial and Access-list tutorial.

The company has 14 hosts that need to access the internet simultaneously but we just have 6 public IP addresses from to Therefore we have to use NAT overload (or PAT) Double click on the Weaver router to open it

configure terminal

First you should change the router’s name to TUT

Router(config)#hostname TUT

Create a NAT pool of global addresses to be allocated with their subnet mask.

TUT(config)#ip nat pool mypool netmask

Create a standard access control list that permits the addresses that are to be translated

TUT(config)#access-list 1 permit

Establish dynamic source translation, specifying the access list that was defined in the prior step

TUT(config)#ip nat inside source list 1 pool mypool overload

This command translates all source addresses that pass access list 1, which means a source address from to, into an address from the pool named mypool (the pool contains addresses from to

Overload keyword allows to map multiple IP addresses to a single registered IP address (many-to-one) by using different ports.

The question said that appropriate interfaces have been configured for NAT inside and NAT outside statements. This is how to configure the NAT inside and NAT outside, just for your understanding:

TUT(config)#interface fa0/0
ip nat inside
interface s0/0
ip nat outside

Finally, we should save all your work with the following command:

TUT#copy running-config startup-config

Check your configuration by going to “Host for testing” and type:


The ping should work well and you will be replied from

    /29 refers to how many bits are used in the subnet mask. This is the same as writing, if that helps. Of 32 bits, 29 are used, leaving 3 bits for host IP addresses; 000, 001, 011, 111, 110, 100, etc. Use formula 2^n-2 to get usable host bits: 2^3-2=6. First and last addresses cannot be used. Same math for any /x number.

    Hi guys,

    Do we count how many address from 105 to 110 which is 5 addresses and get a subnet that will give us 5 usable hosts? /29 gives us 8 addresses In which 6 are usable. Am I right? Thanks for your help in advance

    105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110 = 6 address
    104 mask address
    111 broadcast address

    Hi guys,

    first of all @9tut community –> THANKS A MILLION!!!

    With your help I successfully passed my ICND2 and so I earned my CCNA title as of today! :)))

    And to everyone else –> The premium account really pays of every cent and then some more!! I was able to practice every aspect needed for that exam with my premium access (especially the quizzes and sims are great). Just so you know… 😉

    Nat is in the objectives of ICND1. I don’t understand why this sim appears in 9tut.net/icnd2 and not in icnd1.
