This course is part 3 of 6 in the Cisco CCNP Security (300-206) SENSS exam learning path. In this course, you'll learn all you need to know when it comes the 300-206 SENSS exam and NAT on the ASA. You'll learn the ins and outs of NAT ranging from Dynamic and Static NAT and PAT to Twice NAT.
This course is part 3 of 6 in the Cisco CCNP Security (300-206) SENSS exam learning path and covers the ins and outs of Network Address Translation (NAT) on the Cisco ASA. In this course, the viewer will learn how NAT functions on the Cisco ASA as well as the NAT order of operations. Learners will work through a Statement of Work (SOW) in a real world example of what a customer engagement might involve. You’ll learn how to configure Static and Dynamic Auto NAT and Port Address Translation (PAT), Static and Dynamic Manual NAT and PAT. You’ll also learn how to configure Twice NAT and when it would be most appropriate to use this feature.
Course Summary Well hi there, everyone. This is our Course Summary. That's right. Here we are again at the finish line, another course in the books, and so let's talk about what you've seen as you've gone through this ASA NAT course. So first off, we've seen a number of different NAT configurations on the ASA. We took a look at Auto NAT and we saw how it was an easy button for us to configure NAT. We also took a look at Manual NAT and how that gave us a lot more matching criteria and configuration ability. And we also wrapped things up in this course by looking at Twice NAT and seeing where Twice NAT would be appropriate and how it can really help us out in certain situations. We worked through a Statement of Work just like you would do in the real world if you were a contractor and you were hired by somebody to do some NAT work. As we worked through that SOW, we had a real topology, something that looks very similar to this and we worked through configurations on our ASA in this topology, that we did have some variations of the topology. So, depending on what kind of NAT we were talking about, things might have looked a little different but they were all based on that same topology the entire time we were working through this course. And so that's cool because it helped us to make sure that we were familiar with the topology as we worked through the topics and we didn't have to relearn the topology every time we talk about a different NAT concept. So that hopefully was very beneficial, working with that common topology throughout this course as we looked at that Statement of Work.
