Dear all,

Is it true that I should set address pool as:

ip nat pool Todd 192.1.2.109 192.1.2.109 netmask 255.255.255.248

to use all 6 (six) IP-addresses in a continuous succession ?


And if I set the pool as:
ip nat pool Todd 192.1.2.109 192.1.2.114 netmask 255.255.255.248

then the second through sixth addresses (110 - 114) would only be used if there was a conflict with a TCP port number, so it is a wastefull configuration.
Is it true?

Thank you in advance.

P.S. The only silly question is a question that was not asked.
