Here is an excerpt from Andrew S. Tanenbaum, Computer Networks, 5th edition, Chapter 5 (The Network layer), Page 455:
My question is on the second paragraph. From what I understand, basically this part talks disadvantage of using NAT(Network Address Translation). I don’t understand what second paragraph is trying to say about disadvantage of using NAT because it seems to me that the second paragraph is saying about benefit of using NAT because by using NAT, we can solve the problem of depletion of IP address.
Can anyone explain to me what the second paragraph is trying to convey?
