 Subject:  Server NAT really needed?
 Date:  Wed, 27 Apr 2005 18:11:13 +0200
Hi!

I didn't know anything about the term "Server NAT", so I attempted to
become out what this means and what's it relationship to "1:1 NAT". Now
I know, that it means nothing else than doing port forwarding to an
additional WAN IP-address. I found it somewhat confusing!

So what I want to know is, why there's an extra page for it instead of
integrating this into the "inbound NAT" page? Why not just choosing the
interface and typing the IP address in another field (or leaving the
field blank for choosing the main interface address)? Is there a deeper
sense for an additional "Server NAT" tab?

Ciao ...
