DMVPN problem with NAT

Hi All,


Does anyone know why we have so many NAT entries as below ?


We are running DMVPN EIGRP topology in our network. The DMVPN hub aggregates all the spoke router networks via the tunnel. ALso the Spoke routers allow internet traffic by using NAT and only private traffic flows through the DMVPN tunnel. The IPSec is up and running fine and EIGRP works good. Serial int overload for NAT is configured.


Brief configs on Hub and Spoke are as below:


Spoke router:

------------

interface Tunnel0

description VPN tunnel

bandwidth 400

ip address 172.28.1.159 255.255.252.0

ip nhrp authentication xxx

ip nhrp nhs 172.28.1.1

ip summary-address eigrp 100 10.159.0.0 255.255.0.0 5

The problem is when I get this entry in the NAT table of Spoke router, Crypto breaks and EIGRP goes down on the spoke router and DMVPN tunnel is completely down.


10.159.99.251 is gig0/0.99 private ip of the spoke router. I am not sure why we have some many entries for this UDP 500 ISAKMP connection instead of just one.


This happens even if any PC behind the Spoke router tries to establish IPSec connection with the hub router( which is not at all necessary)


Thanks,

Praful

I think the tunnel get shuts down becoz the time and date when the tunnel registration expires and the DMVPN tunnel will be shut down.
