We have a NAT pool configured for one of the ongoing requirements. Is there a way to force this pool to allocate IP address from start to end as per new requests come in?
e.g. NAT pool configured is 10.10.10.1 to 10.10.10.10
IP source is anything between 192.168.10.1 to 192.168.10.10
We noticed that if the traffic source is 192.168.10.2 it could take an IP from anywhere in the NAT pool. I want to force it to take a first IP in the pool.
Also is it possible to configure something which keeps the last octet static? (this may be too much to ask.)
My understanding of the question was that it didn't matter what the source IP was within the given range, the NAT was desired to be the first unused NAT address within the given range.
I agree though for something like this a simple static NAT rule would be a bit more resonable as you are mapping 10 different source addresses to 10 different NAT addresses and I presume using Dynamic IP. If a static NAT was setup then you would know exactly what address what going to get which NAT address and you wouldn't have to worry about the way the Dynamic IP process chooses a NAT address out of order.
