    what do you mean by "the connection rate" ? the connection rate is about 2000 per second

  2. Hi John,

    With multi-session PAT you can have about 2000 connections using one IP address for PAT, this is because of the 30 second timeout. With per session PAT we don't have this timeout so we can have a lot more connections using the same public IP address.


  3. Is there any reason why you would use multi-session PAT rather than Per-Session PAT, or vice versa?

  4. Never mind, I found it in your article.
