When source nating is done the reverse translation is automatically taken care. Meaning when some one access

it is automatically translated to . But should have been translated to at least once. This translation should be present in the NAT table of the router.

My question was that if there is not NAT entry in the router for that IP Address than what will happened?

Will NATing still be performed or Router will drop the packet?

I believe that if you have a static nat entry on the router eg ip nat inside source..., then the translation will work in both directions regardless of who starts the conversation.
