i want to configure pix firewall to hide my servers real ip address from the internet , so i use static translation .
now i configured my pix firewall (7.2) to do that with this configuration :
static (inside,outside) xx.xx.8.45 192.168.8.45 netmask 255.255.255.255
and also I've configured access-list to allow traffic initiate from outside to inside .
it seems that everything working probably , but now when i check it with command : "sh nat" the result is this:
NAT policies on Interface inside:
match ip inside host 192.168.8.14 outside any
static translation to XX.XX.8.14
translate_hits = 13842, untranslate_hits = 17951
what 'untranslate_hits' means ?
thanks in anticipation
translate_hits provide counters for real to mapped address conversion and untranslate_hits provide counters for mapped to real address conversion.
