Re: [fw-wiz] incoming NAT/PATs for VPN users

what kind of vpn will this be? I am assuming it will be a site to site then
you would most likely be doing NAT exemption in which there will be no
nating. Then you would use your crypto access list to permit or deny who is
allowed to access whatever.

On the other hand with VPN's aside and company B was coming from say the
internet on your untrusted interface then you could do either port
redirection or static nat (this would be alot of nat statements). Or if
company B is coming from a different interface (none publically routed
interface that is) then you could do policy based NAT such as NAT0 with an
access-list. this will allow you to make one NAT statement allowing many
users (such company B) from a lower trusted interface to a more trusted
interface (company A). I guess this would be your "magic of networking".

Hope this helps....if you need further explanation then let me know.

I think what you are after is outside or bidirectional nat.
