Hi,

The entries having the "---" are static entries, the first ip is the Inside local and the second is the Inside global, please check the following document:

Local and Global Definitions:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/556/8.html

For the above entries any packets received on the inside interface are NATed to the inside global ip address and sent out the outside interface and vice versa, and this type of NATing is permanent and the traffic can be initiated either from inside or from outside..

The other entries are dynamic entries, 514 is syslog and 21 is FTP traffic, this type of NATing can only be initiated from inside to outside and the NATing is afterwards used in both directions (same flow only).

Always remember:

In static NAT, a translation is statically configured and is placed in the translation table without the need for any traffic, and they remain in the translation table until you delete the static NAT command(s). While with dynamic NAT, the translation table in the router is initially empty and gets populated once traffic that needs to be translated passes through the router, also dynamic translations have a timeout period after which they are purged from the translation table.

HTH,

Mohammed Mahmoud.
