your NATing configuration should work properly,

and the command show ip nat translation will not show anything until a real traffic is NATed.

I have got a traffic generator (N2X) connected. Do you think that wont make any difference?

Why do you have no keepalive configured under the Gig interface and the serial interface? When I see this configured it is typically to deal with some issue on the interface. If there is some issue on the interface then that might be the reason why your NAT is not working.

I agree that I do not see a problem in the way that your NAT is configured and believe that something else is causing the problem with NAT. Are there routing statements that will forward traffic from the Gig interface out the serial interface? If the traffic is not forwarded that way it would certainly prevent NAT from working.

they were there when I got the router so i did not remove but that is not the problem. when I remove the access-list and use static i get all my conditions ok on the sh ip translations and statistics.

here's how

ip nat inside source static


ip nat inside source static

Now my worry is seemingly NATing with access-list is not working on these ios Version 12.4(20)T?
