IPtables and NAT


Hi all
I'm a noob reading the Iptables 1.2.2. tutorial at
http://iptables-tutorial.frozentux.net. I can see that it's based on an older version of Iptables. There is also a discussion of NAT in there as well. How prevalent is NAT now?

NAT is still widely used today, especially with private IP addressing.

Well if you don't have your own sub-net and you have a network then you'll need NAT. Unless you already have IPv6.
