ANS: Using private addressing with NAT has several advantages over public IP addressing. First, it conserves pub- lic IP addresses. Networks can make use of the private IP address ranges and NAT to either a single external public IP or a smaller pool of public IP addresses. It also hides your internal IP addressing scheme from the outside world, greatly enhancing network security. Finally, it allows for easy renumbering of your IP address- es. For example, if you use all public IP addresses and suddenly decide to change ISPs, you must change all of your internal IP addressing. Using NAT, the internal network uses private IP addresses, which need not change. You would only need to change your outside NAT addresses if you decided to change ISPs. PTS: 1 REF: 23842. ANS: NAT presents some disadvantages. NAT introduces a small amount of delay into your network because the NAT router has to create and maintain the NAT table, which is a table of inside addresses and the associated outside addresses. In addition, due to the translation of the source IP address, end-to-end IP traceability is lost. While it is still possible to track a packet back to the NAT device, finding the actual original host is difficult. Finally, some applications fail due to NAT, although this was more of a problem when NAT was first imple- mented. Today, most modern applications expect NAT to be present on a network. PTS: 1 REF: 23843. ANS:
Static NAT is the simplest form of NAT, in which a single private IP address is mapped to a single public IP address. For example, a router could be configured to translate all communications from the internal 192.168.0.1 address to the address 184.108.40.206. In this way, when the host 192.168.0.1 accesses the Inter- net, the router will translate its IP address to 220.127.116.11. The router will then translate communications between that host and any system on the Internet. Therefore, all Internet devices will communicate with host 18.104.22.168, but the actual packets will be forwarded by the NAT router to host 192.168.0.1 on the local network. In order for the NAT router to translate communications between the internal and external network, it must maintain a table in memory that maps internal IP addresses to addresses presented to the Internet (ex- ternal addresses). With static NAT, the mapping is one-to-one. For example, internal address 192.168.0.1 maps to 22.214.171.124, address 192.168.0.2 maps to 126.96.36.199, and so on. PTS: 1 REF: 23944. ANS: Dynamic NAT means that the NAT router automatically maps a group of valid local IP addresses to a group of Internet IP addresses, as needed. This means that the network administrator is not concerned about which IP address the internal clients use, just that they can get an address. The network administrator also does not have to spend any time defining specific one-to-one mappings between the private and public IP addresses. Any private IP address will automatically be translated to one of the available Internet IP addresses by the NAT router. Addresses for dynamic NAT are pulled out of a predefined pool of public addresses. The admin- istrator must define the pool and then state which internal private addresses can use the pool. PTS: 1 REF: 24045. ANS: Overlapping occurs when the internal network has been incorrectly configured for an IP range that actually exists on the Internet (registered to another entity) or when two companies merge and each company was us- ing the same private IP address range. This problem usually occurs only when uninformed network engineers configure a network using arbitrary addresses. Sometimes the thought is that a connection to the Internet will never be required. In this case, the organization cannot connect directly to the Internet because it has an IP range registered to someone else. This overlapping problem can be solved using NAT because NAT hides the incorrectly configured internal IP scheme. The NAT router must be configured to translate the internal IP ad- dresses to a valid external address or address range. This is really no different than previous forms of NAT except that the organization’s internal IP address range actually belongs to someone else. The “someone else” just does not know about it because those addresses are never exposed to the Internet, thanks to NAT. Most companies do not run into this problem because their network engineers and designers know to use one of the private IP address ranges (10.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x–172.31.x.x, and 192.168.x.x.) when configuring a private in- ternal TCP/IP network. PTS: 1 REF: 24146. ANS: Configuring dynamic NAT is a more involved process than setting up static NAT. Still, it can be broken down into four easy-to-remember steps: • Configure a standard access control list to define what internal traffic will be translated. • Define a pool of addresses to be used for dynamic NAT allocation. • Link the access list to the NAT pool. • Define interfaces as either inside or outside. PTS: 1 REF: 24247. ANS:
On smaller networks, the ISP may be unwilling to provide multiple IP addresses to be used for NAT, or the company may not want to pay for additional IP addresses. When these situations occur, you can configure port address translation to allow the IP address of a single outside interface to be used for translation. Configuring PAT is a three-step process: • Configure a standard access list to define what internal traffic will be translated. • Link the access list to the interface to be used for PAT. • Define interfaces as either inside or outside. PTS: 1 REF: 24348. ANS: The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) provides IP configuration information to hosts on bootup. This functionality is much like that provided by older protocols RARP and BOOTP. But unlike DHCP servers, RARP and BOOTP servers issue IP configuration information based on a host’s MAC address and require manual preconfiguration for each host. In addition, RARP servers can provide only limited informa- tion and can serve only a single LAN. Unlike its predecessors, DHCP is a truly dynamic way to configure IP hosts. In addition to the IP address itself, DHCP servers can provide other parameters, such as the WINS and DNS server addresses, and the default gateway address. PTS: 1 REF: 24649. ANS: DHCP manages addressing by leasing the IP information to the hosts. This leasing allows the information to be recovered when not in use and reallocated when needed. When hosts are configured to use DHCP, they broadcast a DHCP DISCOVER message on the network. DHCP servers that hear the broadcast will send a unicast DHCP OFFER message back to the host. Because a network can have more than one DHCP server, the host may receive more than one offer. In this case, the host broadcasts a DHCP REQUEST to inform the other DHCP servers that the host has chosen a configuration from a particular server. Finally, the chosen DHCP server sends a unicast acknowledgment (DHCP ACK) to the host. PTS: 1 REF: 24650. ANS: This configuration involves the same parameters used when configuring DHCP on a server rather than on a router. You will need to complete the following steps: • Define the pool of addresses. • Configure any optional IP configuration parameters. • Exclude any statically configured addresses. PTS: 1 REF: 247
