Note: The objects defined in RFC 4008, which this document deprecates, generate the following SMILINT warnings:

mibs/NAT-MIB:932: [5] {index-exceeds-too-large} warning: index of row 
`natAddrBindEntry' can exceed OID size limit by 141 subidentifier(s)

mibs/NAT-MIB:1162: [5] {index-exceeds-too-large} warning: index of row 
`natAddrPortBindEntry' can exceed OID size limit by 143 subidentifier(s)

The authors have not corrected those errors, but only flagged the OID as deprecated.

Technical Summary

   This memo deprecates MIB module NAT-MIB, a portion of the Management
   Information Base (MIB) previously defined in RFC 4008 for devices
   implementing Network Address Translator (NAT) function.  A companion
   document defines a new version, NAT-MIB-V2, which responds to
   deficiencies found in module NAT-MIB and adds new capabilities.

   This document obsoletes RFC 4008.

Working Group Summary

   At Dave Harrington's suggestion, this material, deprecating
