Summary

Network Address Translation (NAT) enables you to automatically assign a range of private IP addresses to a group of computers. This way you can “hide” the computers behind the NAT server, which can be connected to a public network via a public IP address. To use NAT on a server running Windows Server 2008, you need two network interfaces on the server.

One network interface connects to the group of computers that is to use the private IP addressing range. The other network interface can be connected to a public network connection, such as a DSL or broadband connection. Using NAT in this way enables you to provide an Internet connection to several computers with only one public IP address. NAT is one of the services available on a server configured with the Routing and Remote Access Services role.
