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, 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
ip nat inside source static

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

I want to add..

ip nat inside source static
ip route

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 router will need a router adding back to the 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...
