Re: To NAT or not to NAT

Even the most basic firewall will provide much better security than NAT ever will. Just because it has an unintended side effect of breaking your internet connection doesn't mean that NAT can be relied on for security. If you depend on NAT instead of a firewall for your security you should expect be wide open to the internet.
