Re: NAT for an ISP

90% of our customers all use private address space. We only give out
real address space to customers that have servers that need to be
visible. We run NAT on several customer facing routers.
Cool stuff we can do is setup PPTP VPNs on the same router to give
people "access from home" to their LAN. Same with L2TP/ILEC DSL.
We have a big nat pool on each router. If some twerp customer gets
infected with some windoze crap, tracking it down can be a bit more
Until recently, the IOS could not take huge volumes of NAT without
tossing it's cookies from time to time.
We have been toying around with VRFs & NAT which was recently introduced
in the IOS, and it appears that in a NAT situation, the VRFs "leak"
between each other, which scares the crap out of me. We are going to
wait for a couple of revisions of the IOS before looking into that
