NAT on Cisco router to reach a device on a different network

Hi Guys

We connect to a customer site via ISDN and Cisco 800 routers,  unfortunately we both have the same IP network of 10.0.0.0/24, so we use NAT to enable a telnet connection to their servers.

On the remote router, I have the following configuration to reach two of their servers from our network:

ip nat inside source static 10.0.0.250 192.168.2.19
ip nat inside source static 10.0.0.251 192.168.2.20

Then from our network, we just telnet 192.168.2.19 or .20 to get to their servers.

I want to add..

ip nat inside source static 10.0.100.250 192.168.2.21
ip route 10.0.100.0 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.205

Will this work? Can I use NAT in this way to reach a device on a different network, providing I include a route how to get their?

I assume the 10.0.0.205 router will need a router adding back to the 192.168.2.0 network?

Does this make sense?

Yes, it makes absolute sense. As long as router A has a route to a host (on the same -nat inside- interface) you can create a static NAT entry for it. And, of course, the host must have a route path to get to the natt'd (192.168.2.x) subnet...
