Basic NAT

With Basic NAT, a block of external addresses are set aside for translating addresses of hosts in a private domain as they originate sessions to the external domain. For packets outbound from the private network, the Basic NAT translates source IP address and related fields such as IP, TCP, UDP and ICMP header checksums. For inbound packets, the destination IP address and the checksums as listed above are translated.
