[fw-wiz] the infamous "static" versus "nat"



Hi All. Great mail list btw, thanks to everyones input.

Two basic questions.

1. I've heard the convention of using "static" for low-to-high NATing and
"nat/global" for high-to-low. Why?

2. Would someone explain the underlying differences in these two commands? Do
they achieve the same thing? Assume net1 = 10.1.1.0/24, net2 = 10.2.2.0/24.

A. static (net1, net2) 10.1.1.0 10.1.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0
B. static (net2, net1) 10.2.2.0 10.2.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0

Cheers!
