Dynamic NAT

Dynamic NAT

We are moving NAT from the routers to the firewall (5050), the routers do not release the session's efficiently so we are constantly running out of IP's in the pool. Is there a rule of thumb for the number of IP's to sessions on a PAN 5050? We run at a consistant 250K sessions.

 

I understand the 64k connections per IP but I have been burned with the routers and want to make sure the firewall does it's job.
