Why does ssh keep hanging

    Well, I wasn't arguing against optional NAT for any possible need.
    In a large organization: yes, I guess so.

    In a smaller home network, I'd expect stateless address autoconfig
    plus DNS to make that fairly painless. Not that I have much experience
    with this -- perhaps I'm overlooking something.
    1:1 NAT would indeed be much less painful than what most of us suffer
    from today. Done wrong it could still have the problem which caused
    this thread, though. And it feels weird to have two different addresses
    for a host depending on from where you're looking.

    This situation already exists today, and for most people they don't
    even know about it as properly split and organised DNS hides the issue -
    just like it should.

    I know, but that doesn't make it less weird.
    It may hide part of the issue, but they still cannot run any servers,
    use protocols which aren't made to work with normal IPv4 NAT, and so

    I was referring to the Split DNS scenario (having moved on from 1:1
    NAT slightly), picking up your comment about it feeling strange to
    have two addresses for the same host. From that perspective - and
    ignoring many:1 NAT for a moment, I have to disagree with you about not
    running servers. My web server here is but you see it
    as In both instances we can use the same DNS name (www)
    and it will work correctly.

    In a corporate configuration this would be (should be) implemented with
    1:1 NAT not many:1 NAT.

    However, IMO this is getting rather off topic for the original subject

    Yes it is, and it's also moving into an area I know nothing about.
    I'm more than happy to drop the subject,
