Subject: There is always a solution. Nat's the word.

Welcome everyone, I know that for many of you this is already a concideration, but with the arguous task of obtaining blocks of IP's, which takes time and Money, many people, including myself receive one IP from our ISP, and fake the rest with Private Network Numbers (10.*, 192.168.*, etc...) and a Network Address Translation(NAT).

For those that don't know this system, please follow the link below.

I believe that if companies rearchitect their networks so that they:
  use private network numbers with NAT tools with leaf networks, and
  use public network numbers for routing between networks, and in transit routes, etc...

Although not the MOST ideal solution for server's, is is not unworkable. It does make the public user routing areas vastly smaller.

What do you all think? Is it a truly viable solution, or does is fail from its implementation / load on gateways / underlying ideals?
