Your company has a border router (R2) that is connected to two partner companies: Partner-DB (R1) providing database services and Partner-APP (R3) providing different application services to your web servers in DMZ (126.96.36.199/24).
R2 is also used to perform NAT between internal LAN (fa1/1 =
After short time, a new requirement appear: the two partners, DB and APP, requires connectivity between themselves, via your router R2... but both of them share the same internal addressing (192.168.0.0/16) and their border routers (R1 and R3) do not have NAT capabilities.
You have been requested to make the connectivity between R1 and R3 and since you have unused addresses in your public DMZ range (188.8.131.52/24) you suggest the following solution:
- Partner-DB (R1) /
192.168.1.1 will be translated to 184.108.40.206, only when going to other partner
- Partner-APP (R3) /
192.168.3.3 will be translated to 220.127.116.11, only when going to other partner
