The objective of this lab exercise is for you to configure static NAT.
NAT is an important exam topic so you can be pretty sure it will crop up. Rather than watch a video solution, I have provided show runs and test commands where appropriate.
This lab is suitable for both CCENT and CCNA certification exam preparation.
This lab has a difficulty rating of 5/10.
When you are ready for your certification exam, you should complete this lab in no more than 15 minutes.
Please use the following topology to complete this lab exercise:
Configure the topology above. You should add a static default route on RouterB to send all traffic out of the Serial interface. Test by pinging the Loopbacks on RouterA. Check that you can ping all interfaces.
Configure static NAT on RouterA. Any traffic coming from 192.168.1.1 should be NATted to 172.16.1.1.
Check your configurations with show commands and pings sourced from 192.168.1.1 when you have debug ip packet running on RouterB.
