Hi, I have "System Type: X440-48t" "version -16.1.3.6" used as server farm. I have connected the ISP leased line from ISP switch directly to server farm and assigned a public IP in the switch’s ISP Vlan. Now I am able to reach the ISP gateway which is Cisco switch from X440-48t and I am able to access the switch from outside. Now we don’t have access to the ISP switch for which we are not able to do a static route back to our private network. So is there any possibility to enable NAT in our switch so that I can translate the private IP to public. If NAT cannot be enabled are there any other options?

No, the Summit X440 doesn't support NAT.
You have two choices:
1. You get a public network from your provider which you use for private purposes (not very likely)
2. You buy a SSA Switch - this one can do NAT

3. buy a cheap firewall to do NAT

Hi Andre and Ronald,
Thank you very much you kind and quick reply.
I wanted to know weather NAT can be enabled in our switch which you have confirmed as no.

once again thank you very much for all.
