Extreme Control behind a firewall

    Hi,

    Currently looking into running a NAC behind a firewall and looking into this GTAC post:

    https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000083367

    Which says the following:

    Populate /appdata/nat_config.txt in NetSight Server with NAT mapping of NAC(s)

    But the nat_config.txt file is blank, so I have no reference as to what I should enter into that file that constitutes a ‘NAT mapping’, so just wondered if anyone within the community might know.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Think I've found the answer:

    How were you checking the content of the nat_config.txt file? I'm not sure it should be blank:
    captain@spock.vulcan.local:~$ cat /usr/local/Extreme_Networks/NetSight/appdata/nat_config.txt
    # The nat_config.txt file is used to configure NetSight to work in a NAT
    # environment. The file maps local IP addresses to their remote IP address.
    # A local IP is defined as an IP addresses of system on the same side of
    # the NAT firewall as this server and a remote IP address is defined as the
    # corresponding IP address of that end system on the other side of the NAT
    # firewall.
    #
    # The format for each line should be: #
    # EX:
    # 10.20.80.155=134.141.90.221 # Some note or description.
    # 10.20.80.156=134.141.90.222 # Some note or description.[/code]

    Hi Kawawa,

    Odd, yeah, the file was completely blank 0KB.

    I've since edited it now, so it has the single entry in it, was running a fresh OVA installation of XMC version 8.1.3.65

    Thanks for the info anyway.

    Will post back if it works.

    Cheers
