Wild card setting for NAT

Hi

I put the Ip address for Fast ethernet 0/1

192.168.88.2 and subnet 255.255.255.192

then in NAt, i typed

configure terminal
ip access-list standard NAT_ADDRESS
permit 192.168.88.0 0.0.0.255


but still i is not allowing trafiq to go out side
also i added this line

ip nat inside source list NAT_ADDRESS interface FastEthernet 0/0 overload

and static router has right entry so that trafiq can go out

what i am thinking is bellow line

permit 192.168.88.0 0.0.0.255  -> permit 192.168.88.0 0.0.0.192

can any one please help me
thanks

The wildcard subnet mask for 255.255.255.192 is 0.0.0.63.

If you need help with NAT I would need to see the entire configuration.

why 63 ??

but i think the problem was different

for some reason, it was unable to use dns server of my isp router

but its working now by using

ip access-list standard NAT_ADDRESS
 permit 192.168.88.0 0.0.0.255
!

but why you said to use 63?

While xephael is correct in his comment, 192.168.88.0 0.0.0.255 will work since it includes your subnet, 192.168.88.0/26 (255.255.255.192).

Since your network is 192.168.88.0 255.255.255.192, wildcard mask for ACL should be 0.0.0.63 so it only covers your network and not entire 192.168.88.0 255.255.255.0.

"why 63?"

63+192=255 which is the maximum number for an IPv4 octet.  The wildcard is an inverse of a subnet mask.  For example the wildcard of subnet 255.255.255.0 is 0.0.0.255.  The wildcard of subnet 255.255.255.128 is 0.0.0.128.

Hope that makes sense.
