I have a Pix 515e w/ ver 6.3
I just finished configuring a object-group, the access-list, and the access-group command the hard way "CLI".
do I have to issue the "Pix1#clear xlate " command for the change to take effect ?.
Cisco recommendeds doing a 'clear xlate' after any ACL or NAT configuration change. However, if the ACL change you had made doesn't affect any existing xlate entry then clearing xlate mayn't be required.
Are you concerned about any disruption in traffic by the 'clear xlate' command. There should be a very brief disruption and the xlate entries would be quickly recreated.
