Is it possible to set up a single-interface IPNat box??
A friend of mine has a need to set up a home network and the box he procured
to do NAT currently only has one NIC. What we were thinking is:
(inside host) (NAT box) (router to outside)
| | |
Where inside host is assigned a non-routable address, the NAT box has a "real"
IP address on the interface and an alias that is also a non-routable address.
Inside host default gateway == non-routable address of NAT box
NAT box default gateway == router
Getting another NIC obviously isn't a horrendous expense in this day and age,
but I'm curious whether the above setup should work (in theory or in practice).
I haven't looked at the IPFilter documentation enough to determine whether
we were both crazy or not.
Any comments appreciated (other than comments on our sanity.. We know we're
