Can someone explain to me a few things about Natting.

But I do not understand this.

Since all ips we use in the LAN are private and can not be acceses from internet them why do we need NAT;

NAT is if you want to enable remote connections. It is basically port forwarding. Such as port 3389. If you point that port to a pc's ip addy, then enable remote connection, you could go to whatismyip.com and write that ip down. Then on ANY computer, place that in the "Remote Desktop Connection" software, and you could connect to your home pc at any time, anywhere you have internet.
