PAT
Last modified: Monday, August 05, 2002 

Short for port address translation, a type of network address translation. During PAT, each computer on LAN is translated to the same IP address, but with a different port number assignment.

PAT is also referred to as overloading, port mapping, port-level multiplexed NAT or single address NAT.
