port-overloading (Security Source NAT Interface)


Hierarchy Level


Enable interface NAT with or without port overloading.



Specify off to disable interface port overloading.


The port-overloading option should not be used in conjunction with the port-overloading-factor option because they can override each other. For example, if port-overloading has been set to off to disable interface port overloading, and subsequently the port-overloading-factor is configured with any value greater than 1, the port-overloading-factor setting will override the port-overloading setting. (Configuring port-overloading-factor 1 is equivalent to configuring port-overloading off.)
