    what is bidirectional NAT ?


    Internal -----NAT ----------- NAT ------- Internal
    Network A device device Network B

    hosts in Network A should be able to connect to hosts in Network B and
    similarly hosts in Network B should be able to connect to hosts in
    Network A.

    if this is ok, then what about double NATing ? is double NATing same as above ?

  2. :what is bidirectional NAT ?

    Incoming -and- outgoing packets get NAT'd.


    : Internal -----NAT ----------- NAT ------- Internal
    : Network A device device Network B

    :hosts in Network A should be able to connect to hosts in Network B and
    :similarly hosts in Network B should be able to connect to hosts in
    :Network A.

    Yes, that could work.


    :if this is ok, then what about double NATing ? is double NATing same as above ?

    Not necessarily. Double NAT can refer to a situation in which
    A and B are using the -same- network numbers, and you need a device
    to figure out how to get the data in-between properly.
