    Is it safe to enable/disable the NAT funcionality on my router? And are there any secondary issues if I turn off my NAT?

    NAT is necessary and not an option if you have more than one device connected to your router. What are you trying to achieve?

    It's like opening up your PC/network to the whole world wide web. If you are trying to access your PC or any network device from the internet, you might want to look at using DDNS. I am using www.no-ip.com (they have free DDNS services) as my DDNS host for accessing my NAS, surveillance camera, etc., on the internet anywhere in the world
