NATing Problem after moving from PIX 515 to ASA 5510

Answered Question
Dec 2nd, 2007

I have LAN- LAN connections on VPN Concentrator I have done static NAT on PIX 515

static (VPN,inside) 172.31.9.xx 191.2.1.xx netmask 0 0

Any user from inside sends traffic to 172.31.9.xx which in turns initiates the tunnel through VPN Concentrator User can start the tunnel by sending traffic to actual IP also from LAN

After I moved the configuration from PIX 515 to ASA 5510 I can send the traffic through 172.31.9.xx but not through 191.2.1.xx(Actual IP) Logs on ASA shows "No Translation group found icmp src inside 172.20.xx.xx dst VPN 191.2.1.xx (type 8,code 0) If I remove the static NAT from ASA it starts sending traffic through actual IP 191.2.1.xx

It was working on PIX 515 but not on ASA 5510

Anybody can please help me

I have this problem too.

Most probably, your global statement is missing in config, or you used to apply exempt nat for 191.x.x in inside and now you dont.

nat (inside) 1 x.x.x.x x.x.x.x lets say that this is your crrent NAT, if so, add the following

global (VPN) 1 interface


nat (inside) 0 access-list anaclname

access-list anaclname permit host 191.2.1.xx


static (VPN,inside) 191.2.1.x 191.2.1.x netmask

I applied this statement and it was working

static (VPN,inside) 191.2.1.x 191.2.1.x netmask

Thanks a lot !!!!

But one thing I could not understand is why it was working in PIX 515 without this statement

Again Thanks a Lot

you are welcome. I really have to see your previous PIX config to accurately answer this question.

Using global command would be better in my opinion. Can you post the previous PIX configuration?

nat-control must be enabled.

I'd also be curious to know what OS version was on the pix 515, specifically if it was a 7.x or earlier.

I enabled nat-control but it was not working

PIX 515 has 6.3 and ASA has 7.0

that's why it wasn't working - be/c nat-control is enabled.

that's why adding the static statement made it work.
