Network address translation features allows you to establish connectivity between different networks, when IP addresses between the networks are not routable or are overlapping. Connectivity is achieved by translating IP addresses in IP packets. This course provides you with an overview, configuration, verification, and troubleshooting of NAT features on Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewalls and on Cisco IOS Software routers.
