    Yes you can: full cone NAT one-to-one IP address topology.

    What would be an advantage of running NAT?

    Good way to dealing with IPv4 shortage. Though IPv6 should address that in the years to come and ultimately making NAT useless :) But for now, its useful...

    1. Enhances the level of security within the Network by hiding its internal structure.

    2. Permits an almost unlimited number of users of one class C Network address because global addresses are required only when a user is connected to the Internet.

    3. When an existing IP Network is attached to the Internet, there is no need to replace the IP address of each and every host on the internal net - the task is accomplished by the NAT.

    It prevents malicious activity initiated by outside hosts from reaching those local hosts. This can enhance the reliability of local systems by stopping worms and enhance privacy by discouraging scans.

    So those pesky Brute force attacks never actually make it to the server :) That way, you can still run SSH on port 22 and not have to install software like APF/BFD that may result in higher server load (if there were enough attacks to caused higher loads).
