hi guru,
We have quite a lot of manual NAT rules and static routes which is migrated from previous version since version 4.x, our Static NAT is simple, possible to use the Auto NAT for any new host objects and maintain the old way for the old objects? By enabling "Autoproxy Arp" & "Client-side" NAT?
We are going to install to R61 for gateway.
Any ideas?
thx
Nick

Mixed works fine. Some places use a lot of automatic NAT, then some generic manual NAT rules at the top - e.g. "no nat for internal <-> internal traffic".

Personally I think better to be consistent, with whatever you choose - manual or auto.

Client-side translation should definitely be enabled.

Mixed works fine.

We've been using Auto NAT since install, but some manual NAT entries have been introduced to resolve some issues. We also use manual for PAT too.
