Hide Nat vs. Pat


I have been introduced to the a new term: Hide Nat.  As I google around trying to understand it a bit better, but it sounds a heck of a lot like Pat.  What difference, if any, is there between hide nat and pat ?

Hide NAT is a term used by some vendors like CheckPoint typically to describe the translation of many internal IPs to one external IP.  Cisco refers to it as PAT.  They are the same thing, just different terminology.

Perfect.  Thank you.  Googling around did not have a clear answer, although my searches seemed to allude to this.

Thank you
