Cisco 1841 IP routing


I have Cisco 1841 with T1 card for the Internet.

The Serial0/1/0 has an ip address of

I have another block of ip subnet /29 that is route from isp via the

i have HWIC4ESW, i configure one of the port for the HWIC4ESW to be Vlan 2 with ip

I can use nat to go out through,  

But how do i use the to go out to the internet.

You can NAT on the router using static NAT's as such.  No PIX required.

ip nat inside source static extendable

This will create a one to one translation for the inside host
With one T1 card ? I don't think you can. Talk to the ISP and get it changed and get all of them in 66.x.x.x range.

Use them with static NAT's on the router if desired or you can put them in a NAT pool (really no point in doing that) but you have that option.

so i would need a pix to take one of the ip and than nat it that way through the pix?

No way to use it with just the router?

so i can do 1-1 nat
how about many to 1 nat?

Don't i have to assign one of the to an interface?

No, you do not have to.  The subnet will be routed from your ISP to your router via

You can do many to one NAT also but if you are PAT'ing off the interface (, there really is no point in wasting your 209.x.x.x addresses.  Use those for Internet accessible servers or inside client applications that don't play well with PAT.

ok thanks JFrederick,

But by having the address as a webserver for example would comprimise the security of the network?  If someone gets into the webserver on the than they can access the network right?
Yes, there is always inherent risk when connecting to an unsecure network such as the Internet.  If you have the resources, you could create a "virtual" DMZ using VLAN's and subinterfaces on the 1841 router, you could also use a third physical interface on the 1841 router to use as a DMZ or put a PIX firewall with three interfaces behind the router.
