I have a client that wants to set up a local dev server - and has obtained a block of 5 IP addresses from his ISP.
I'm pretty much a novice at networking stuff, although I have a somewhat basic grasp of the concepts. So, before I go heading out there to finish configuring his stuff, do I have this right?
What I want to do is to pick an arbitrary external IP address, and create a NAT rule to map it to the internal network address of the server. Is that correct? So, like 216.225.x.x (external) has a NAT rule established to point it to 192.168.100.x (the internal address of the server).
If so, one side question. In the documentation I see that they have "starting IP address" and "ending ip address". So far as I know, the box only has one IP address assigned to it. So would starting/ending be the same?
Thanks in advance!
