ACL, NAT Processing Order documentation

Unanswered Question
Feb 5th, 2007

I am investigating several network performance issues. My hypothesis is that ICMP Unreachable packets are being discarded rather than relayed.

What I'm looking for is a discussion of the IOS processing steps that take place from the time that the packet arrives on an interface and all the steps until it is transmitted out the next interface.

It's been a few years since I worked with Cisco IOS with any degree of regularity. I see some items in configuration files that scream: "I'm in the wrong place".

I'm looking for additional inforation that might explain why.

I have this problem too.

Thank you for the link. This gets me started on a network issue involving NAT, DMVPN, and Path MTU Discovery. The last is not working and results in a significant number of fragments being sent over the DMVPN tunnel.
