I am going to be getting an entire class C public IP range from my ISP shortly. It is for use in a "lab" setting. It is desired that each computer will have it's own public IP address like this, making the range necessary. But it also eliminates NAT from being used.
I'm familiar with setting up Cisco ASA's using NAT. But I am so confused as to how I would use/configure the ASA if it were not doing NAT?
I'm aware of transparent mode, but is this the only way? I don't like some of the shortcomings of this...
I don't understand how I can put a firewall after the ISP router but use that same /24 range on both the inside and outside interfaces of the router? That would just make it a switch?
