CCNA Certification – NAT-2 Configuration Lab Simulation

A network associate is configuring a router for the Weaver 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
The task is to complete the NAT configuration using all IP addresses assigned by the ISP to provide internet access for the hosts in the weaver LAN. Functionality can be tested by clicking on the host provided for testing.
Configuration information:
Router name – Weaver
Inside global addresses – – /29
Inside local addresses – – /28
Number of inside hosts – 14


Step 1: Router Name

Router#configure terminal
Router(config)#hostname Weaver

Step 2: NAT Configuration

Weaver(config)#access-list 10 permit
Weaver(config)#ip nat pool mynatpool netmask
Weaver(config)#ip nat inside source list 10 pool mynatpool overload

Step 3: Save Configuration

Weaver#copy run start


We can verify the answer by pinging the ISP IP Address ( from Host for testing.
Click “Host for testing”
In command prompt, type “ping”. If ping succeeded then the NAT is working properly.
