NAT-NVI: translation failed (A) dropping packet

Hi, 

No body at Cisco could answer this (ticket remains open 613870435)


I'm not sure if there is a problem with the router configuration or it is other thing. 

Problem Details: I configured NAT translation in order to access remotely an application running in port TCP 2000. 

The application times out and when i run a debug it show me: "NAT-NVI: translation
failed (A), dropping packet s=216.226.51.238 d=216.218.0.120 

We, together with people from cisco, do some test and the packet capture shows the server is responding ok but the client side doesnt see the response packets.




Thanks,
Leo

Re: NAT-NVI: translation failed (A) dropping packet

Hi Leo,

Looks like you are using skinny port for your application; skinny traffic inspection is enable by default for 12.4T code, I am not sure if your IOS has that feature enabled by default. You can disable it using "no ip nat service skinny tcp port 2000".

Re: NAT-NVI: translation failed (A) dropping packet

You don't have any idea how you help me. Thank you very much man.

I waste more than a month (since march 11) with Cisco "Engineers" trying to resolve this ticket (613870435). The case pass through 3 engineers, i thought i was going to receive a call from chambers or some like.TAC service is getting so bad.

I seriously thinking do not pay anymore smartnet and offer the support to our customer by myself.

THANKS AGAIN

Hi Leo,

You are welcome! glad that I can help.

I know that caveat because I just went through similar problem recently, but in general TAC still the best on troubleshooting.
