I've a quick question about Network Address Translation. Are most people on
the list using static NAT or dynamic, or a mixture of both?
I'm trying to find out why to use one vs. the other. The main reason that I
can see for using Dynamic NAT is security, as a permanent one to one mapping
of IP addresses is information that can potentially be used by bad guys.
Any other major reason to use Dynamic vs. Static NAT?
