Hits occur when NAT looks for a mapping, and finds one. Misses occur when NAT looks for a NAT table entry, does not find one, and then needs to dynamically add one.
If everything is working fine, when you first initiiate a PING to test your NAT, the hit counter should increment and the miss counter should increment by 1. If the translation is built successfully, the miss counter will no longer increment becuase it no longer "misses" the NAT because it is now in the NAT translation table.
Once the translation expires, the miss counter will increment by 1 the next time you PING.
If you can refer to my 1st post you will see that there are no misses, but still my "sh ip nat translations" do not show anything though there are matches/hits. Does this means my Nat'ing is not working fine?
