Hi - If I have a static NAT say 188.8.131.52 (Outside) to 184.108.40.206 (DMZ) AND the server in the DMZ 220.127.116.11 has a gateway set of 18.104.22.168 - an interface on a ASA firewall.
Now this if for a hypothetical DR situation - we lose the ASA - the 22.214.171.124 is a service provider offering DR - 126.96.36.199 belongs to them.
question is does the server in the dmz 188.8.131.52 "need" to communicate with its gateway (which no longer exists) when it needs to to go of its network - example talk to our "inside" LAN non different subnet? _ or does static NAT work in the manner that the gateway doesn't matter. Its a static NAT- so "All" comms" will nat to 184.108.40.206 and the service provider will have access lists that allow the traffic to come back inside to our LAN
Sorry could be confusing question - really i need to know if the NAT'd IP still uses the static gateway set on its interface to do any comms to leave its LAN??
