Documentation errata

Errors with the NAT Configuration Guide and Basic Routing Configuration Guide have been corrected in this release.

NAT Configuration Guide

In earlier versions of NAT Configuration Guide up to and including Version 17.2.0, the Source address translations section stated that you could set the translation address either to one of the addresses defined on the outbound interface or to masquerade. This is not correct, because now you can set the translation address to any address that you want.

Basic Routing Configuration Guide

In earlier versions of Basic Routing Configuration Guide, Figure 1 in the Configuring static routes section showed an IPv6 diagram whereas it should show an IPv4 diagram. The correct diagram is as follows:
