clat-prefix (Source NAT Next Gen Services)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the customer-side translator (CLAT) IPv6 source prefix, which is used for 464XLAT.

464XLAT lets an IPv4 client with a private IP address connect to an IPv4 host over an IPv6 network. The CLAT translates IPv4 source addresses to IPv6 by embedding the IPv4 source address in this IPv6 source prefix. The CLAT then sends the packets over an IPv6 network to the MX Series router, which acts as a provider-side translator (PLAT). The MX translates the embedded IPv4 private IP address to a public IPv4 address.
