           Scaling IP Address


• Scaling networks with NAT and PAT
• Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
            Scaling networks with
               NAT and PAT

Introducing NAT

• NAT is designed to conserve IP addresses and enable
  networks to use private IP addresses on internal
• These private, internal addresses are translated to
  routable, public addresses.
NAT terms
•   Inside local address – The IP address assigned to a host on the inside network (not a
    legitimate IP address-RFC 1918 private address).
•   Inside global address – A legitimate IP address represents one or more inside local IP
    addresses to the outside world.
•   Outside local address – The IP address of an outside host as it is known to the hosts
    on the inside network.
•   Outside global address – The IP address assigned to a host on the outside network.
    The owner of the host assigns this address.

Major NAT and PAT features

• NAT translations can be used for a variety of
  purposes and can be either dynamically or
  statically assigned.
• Dynamic NAT is designed to map a private IP
  address to a public address.
• Overloading, or Port Address Translation (PAT),
  maps multiple private IP addresses to a single
  public IP address.
• Realistically, the number of ports that can be
  assigned a single IP address is around 4000.
Major NAT and PAT features

NAT advantages

• Eliminates reassigning each host a new IP
  address when changing to a new ISP.
• Conserves addresses through application port-
  level multiplexing.
• Protects network security.
• Reduce address overlap occurrence.
NAT disadvantages

• Translation introduces switching path delays
  and processing overhead.
• Loss of IP end-to-end traceability.
• Certain application will not function with NAT

Troubleshooting NAT and PAT configuration

• Use the following steps to determine whether NAT is
  operating as expected:
   – Based on the configuration, clearly define what NAT is supposed to
   – Verify that correct translations exist in the translation table.
   – Verify the translation is occurring by using show and debug
   – Review in detail what is happening to the packet and verify that
     routers have the correct routing information to move the packet along.

     Dynamic Host Configuration
Introducing DHCP

• Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
  works in a client/server mode.
• DHCP enables DHCP clients on an IP network to
  obtain their configurations from a DHCP server.
• Less work is involved in managing an IP
  network when DHCP is used.
• The DHCP protocol is described in RFC 2131.

Easy IP

• Cisco routers can use a Cisco IOS feature set,
  Easy IP, to offer an optional, full-featured DHCP
• Easy IP leases configurations for 24 hours by
• The DHCP service is enabled by default on
  versions of Cisco IOS that support it.
• To disable DHCP service, use the no service dhcp

• Both protocols are client/server based and use UDP
  ports 67 and 68. Those ports are still known as BOOTP
• The four basic IP parameters:
   –   IP address
   –   Gateway address
   –   Subnet mask
   –   DNS server address

DHCP Operation
DHCP Messages

 •   If the client detects that
     the address is already
     in use on the local
     segment it will send a
     message and the
     process starts again.
 •   If the client received a DHCPNACK from the server after
     sending the DHCPREQUEST, then it will restart the process
 •   If the client no longer needs the IP address, the client sends a
     DHCPRELEASE message to the server.


• Cisco IOS DHCP server always checks to make
  sure that an address is not in use before the
  server offers it to a client.
• By default, router will issue 2 ICMP echo
  requests, or will ping, to a pool address before
  sending the DHCPOFFER to a client.
Configuring DHCP

Excluding IP
Key DHCP Server Commands

Verifying DHCP operation

    • To verify the operation of DHCP, the command show
      ip dhcp binding can be used.
    • To verify that messages are being received or sent
      by the router, use the command show ip dhcp server
Troubleshooting DHCP

Network services

• Remote clients will broadcast to locate servers
  while routers, by default, will not forward client
  broadcasts beyond their subnet.
IP helper-address
• Remote clients will broadcast to locate servers while
  routers, by default, will not forward client broadcasts
  beyond their subnet.
• When possible, administrators should use the ip helper-
  address command to relay broadcast requests for these
  key UDP services.
• By default, the ip helper-address command forwards the
  following eight UDP services:
   –   Time
   –   TACACS
   –   DNS
   –   BOOTP/DHCP Server
   –   BOOTP/DHCP Client
   –   TFTP
   –   NetBIOS Name Service
   –   NetBIOS datagram Service

DHCP Relay

    • NAT and PAT concepts and operation
    • NAT and PAT configuration and
    • Comparison between DHCP and BOOTP
    • Cisco Router DHCP configuration
    • DHCP relay with ip helper-address

Lab Topology
Lab Requirements

  •   Each Site use network address 10.x.0.0/16. Global
      address is 172.20.x.0/28. Network connecting to Center
      is 203.162.x.0/30.
  •   Configuring a static NAT mapping and dynamic NAT
  •   Each Site use Router as a DHCP server to provide IP
      addresses to department network.
