    Accepted Solution

    NAT is what a common router does in that it hides an internal network behind a public IP. It is not necessarily connected with IPSec, Kerberos etc. A web server typically uses port 80 communication and if you want your web pabe to be accessible by the public, you shouldn't hide it behind layers of security. Security for the web server lies in the server software. Remember Code Red and Nimda?
