Does an AR support the mapping of consecutive port numbers
An AR supports the mapping of consecutive port numbers with restrictions: A public IP address can only be configured in the nat server command once. If it is configured in another nat server command, the system displays a message indicating that the previous configuration will be overwritten.

1. Create an ACL to match the ports to be mapped. [Huawei] acl number 3001 [Huawei] rule 5 permit tcp destination-port range 1 4000

2. Configure a NAT server without specifying the internal and external port numbers, and reference ACL 3001. [Huawei] interface GigabitEthernet0/0/1 [Huawei-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] nat server global inside acl 3001

This method completes the mapping of consecutive port numbers (intranet ports matching an ACL rule are mapped to the same ports on the public network) without the need to configure port mapping one by one using the nat server command. inside acl 3001

How do I configure batch port mapping
When a private IP address and a range of consecutive port numbers need to be mapped to a public IP address and a range of consecutive port numbers, you can reference an ACL to complete batch port mapping configuration.

On the private network shown in the right figure, multiple consecutive ports of a server need to be open to users on the public network. The private IP address of the server is, its server port is in the range of 2000-4000 or 5000, and its public IP address is The interconnected IP address on the carrier network is The private IP address and ports 2000-4000 and 5000 of the internal server need to be mapped to public IP address and corresponding ports.


  1. Set the IP address for the interface.

    <Huawei> system view
    [Huawei] sysname Router
    [Router] vlan 100
    [Router-vlan100] quit
    [Router] interface vlanif 100
    [Router-Vlanif100] ip address 24
    [Router-Vlanif100] quit
    [Router] interface ethernet 2/0/0
    [Router-Ethernet2/0/0] port link-type access 
    [Router-Ethernet2/0/0] port default vlan 100
    [Router-Ethernet2/0/0] quit 
    [Router] interface GigabitEthernet 1/0/0
    [Router-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] ip address 24
    [Router-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] quit 
  2. Create an ACL that matches the port numbers to be mapped.

    [Router] acl number 3001
    [Router-acl-adv-3001] rule 5 permit tcp destination-port range 2000 4000
    [Router-acl-adv-3001] rule 5 permit tcp destination-port eq 5000
    [Router-acl-adv-3001] quit
  3. Configure NAT server and reference the ACL.

    [Router] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/0
    [Router-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] nat server global inside acl 3001
    [Router-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] quit 
  4. Configure a default route on the router, with as the next-hop address.

    [Router] ip route-static

More information

. Referencing an ACL to batch configure port mapping completes the mapping of consecutive port numbers and reduces the configuration workload. You do not need to run the nat server command on interfaces one by one. Additionally, to change the range of port numbers, you only need to change the ACL rules for future maintenance. One public IP address can be used for batch port mapping configuration only once. If other internal servers need to provide services for public network users, use other public IP addresses for port mapping configuration.

How to implement port mapping on an AR router
Run the port-mapping command on an AR router to configure port mapping based on basic ACLs (number 2000 to 2999). Port mapping is implemented after packets match an ACL rule. To filter packets based on the ACLs, port mapping tries to match the destination IP addresses in the packets with the IP addresses defined in the basic ACL rules.
# Set the mapping port of the HTTP service to 10. If packets comply with the rules defined in the ACL 2000, the mapping relationship takes effect.

[Huawei-acl-basic-2000] rule permit

Meaning of the server mapping on the USG2000 and USG5000
The server mapping is classified into static mapping and server load balancing. The static mapping is a type of one-to-one mapping, that is, a public IP address corresponds to an intranet server. The server load balancing is a type of one-to-many mapping. It can distribute traffic generated by external network users for accessing the intranet servers among specific intranet servers based on a certain algorithm.
