Cramer... yes I need to double check the 2960S for NAT commands. I agree it's doubtful, but I need to console in and be 100% sure...

The only Cisco Catalyst switch model that I know supports NAT is 6500 series. Since you are getting 1 Gbps connection, getting 6500 series is not a bad idea especially when you can get one for cheap on ebay

Guarenteed the lower end Catalyst switches won't do NAT -- ie. 29xx, 35xx, 36xx, 37xx. 6500s will, but I recall someone once telling me it was with a VERY specific combination of SUPs and code.

You can always plug in FWSM to do NAT plus some security stuff
