Cisco NAT Address Types

Cisco IOS NAT address types can be very confusing. I just read a very good article describing the different types of NAT address. Here's the summary:
  • Inside global: The address of the inside host as seen from the outside
  • Inside local: The address of the inside host as seen from the inside
  • Outside local: The address of the outside host as seen from the inside
  • Outside global: The address of the outside host as seen from the outside
