Well the way I understand NAT is that it is simply a SPI filering that
swaps the source address of outgoing packets from the LAN and simple
drop all unsolicited incoming packets... it pretty much just adds a
mapping of an address to a firewall, in other words, it is just a
firewall, right?

Anyway, NAT might as well be used with IPv6:


I personally don't see anything so bad about NAT that some people
behind IPv6 consider it as an ugprade to drop it?
