Static mapping for inside to outside global ip address should work fine.

Many people are using it like that for their web servers and email servers which are located in the inside network.

What kind of server is that? Web, email?

You can use static port mapping as well with it. Here is the url which discuss that


Anyway, try to clear the nat by using "clear ip nat trans" command after you change the ip address mapping. Ping the outside ip address after that.

Since you have ip nat inside / outside means you have dynamic NATing enabled as well....now removing ip nat inside from FE0/0 (and it works) means you are killing the dynamic NAT process.

Need to execute "clear ip nat translation *" after we move over to the web server & attempt to ping from outside to the webserver.

Thanks, Mak.
