NAT support on the Nexus 7000?

Hi

I've been trying to determine if the Nexus 7000 supports NAT. I've had a look around but can't find anything definitive, if anybody can confirm whether the 7K supports NAT it'd be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi,

Nexus products currently do not support NAT.

Hi,

I don't have a link or document stating that, but there have been several discussion around this subject. Here is one link. I have also ask Cisco SEs about it. I don't think, it is on road map for feature either.

Page 20-21 of this switch guide has a chart that says h/w NAT isn't supported. The NX-OS config guides I've seen that mention NAT do so in the context of IPv6 saying IPv6 eliminates the need for NAT/PAT, so I wouldn't count on seeing NAT in the 7k's. Grab a 6500 dedicate a router to that purpose.
