Network Address Translation is a process used to modify, or translate, either the source or destination IP address or port in a packet header. The primary use for NAT is to allow multiple network devices on a private network to be represented by a single public IP address when they browse the Internet.

That, and the voices in his head told him it was good idea. Never argue with the voices in your head. People will start to stare.
