Static NAT

This section demonstrates how MidoNet uses static NAT to implement floating IP addresses.

MidoNet implements floating IP addresses in a two-stage process:

  1. Bring traffic to a floating IP address (that is, bring traffic from an external network to a tenant router).
  2. Perform network address translation from the external network’s public IP address to a private IP address and in the reverse direction.


To view this example, this section assumes you have configured:

  • A project
  • An Edge Router
  • An external network
  • A tenant router
  • A private network (bridge)
  • At least one VM connected to the bridge
  • A floating IP address assigned to at least one VM.
