Cisco Nat Configurations

I have a 2600 Cisco Router attached to a Cisco 871 that belongs to Cable Vision with a block of 5 public static IP addresses. I chose one of the open IP addresses to run my Cisco lab without success. I can ping the public IP address from my laptop cannot get online. I was told that I needed to Nat from private to public but when I do I still cannot get online. I was also told that from my personal 2600 to the 871 I should be going from Nat inside to nat outside. However, this still fails. What am I missing?

The only reason to NAT inbound traffic is if you are trying to allow outside access to your internal servers.

Which would be something like this:

ip nat inside source static 192.168.5.15 206.248.x.x extendable
-- maps all inocming traffic on 206.248.x.x (single IP) to 192.168.5.15 inside

ip nat inside source static udp 192.168.5.30 16235 interface Dialer2 16235
-- maps all incoming traffic on the dialer interface (public IP) on port 16235 udp will be routed to 192.168.5.30 on the inside

The configs I already posted will allow you to get out to the Internet from inside.  These last few allow outside traffic in to LAN IPs either with a blanket NAT or one port at a time.

Use ACLs to restrict access beyond the NAT as to what traffic is actually allowed inbound on the outside IP.

Can you ping the public IP of the 2600 from anywhere on the Internet?

One iP address will be need to terminate the interface, then use a second ip adress for the NAT pool.

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

You can use a single IP for the interface and for NAT, but we need to know if the 871 is passing the network through or if we need NAT setup on the 871.

With my home connection, I have a 2621XM with a static IP and a /30 that is a different subnet.  I have to do static NAT mappings to my internal LAN IPs to use the /30.

What would the correct configurations be? Matty I can ping the default gateway without issues. I can also ping the public IP address that I assigned to the iint fastethernet 0/0 with out issues. Honez? Do you mean nat the private?

Matt VCommented:
If you can ping the public IP from another location (across the Internet) then you are all set.

On the 2600 you will need a line similar to:

ip nat inside source list 100 interface fastethernet 0/0 overload

Then define the inside IPs you would like to be nat'd in ACL 100

ip access-list extended 100
permit ip 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.255 any

what do I do about outside IP Nat? should I configure the outer interface facing the internet?

Matt VCommented:
What do you mean by outside IP nat?

Those statements tell the router to use the outside IP for all requests heading from the LAN to the Internet.

You will also need to add ip nat inside to the LAN interface and ip nat outside to the Fas0/0 interface.  

Other than that, you can add some ip inspect rules for tcp udp and ftp if your IOS supports it.

Matty I am aware of Outside Nat configurations... I was instructed to configure IP Nat outside for my Public and IP Inside for my private. From what I am reading here only inside nat configurations are required with an access list. Is this correct?

That maps outside traffic in, what about allowing LAN traffic out?

what would be an example of mapping traffic out?   I have this  ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
ip nat outside

I already posted that part:

ip nat inside source list 100 interface fastethernet 0/0 overload

ip access-list extended 100
permit ip 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.255 any

interface fas0/0
  ip nat outside

interface fas0/1 (interface with 192.168.1.1 on it)
  ip nat inside

I reloaded and reset my router . Read online documentation and matched it with the results given to me by this expert. He pointed me in the right direction and will try configuring the environment one more time.
