Static NAT on Firewall and Dynamic NAT on Router
Posted on 2011-10-20
I am about to add a Cisco Router to our existing network where the SonicWall used to do everything before. The SonicWall Security Appliance currently does the firewall and static NAT for the servers. I was just wondering if there would be a performance, security or other issues if I added the dynamic NAT for the client computers on the Router so as to divide the processing for each device. In other words the firewall which already has static entries for the servers will remain as such and then I add a Cisco router that will assign the client computers with private IP addresses public IP addresses from a dynamic pool as needed. I just wanted to know if there would any issue with this kind of setup. Thanks.
