Using Dynamic NAT with 1-to-1 NAT

Is there normally a problem running dynamic nat with 1-to-1 NAt?

Scenario: all users can access the internet, some computers use dynamic NAt others use 1-to-1 nat,
internet pages constantly need to be reloaded in order to see webpages when more than one user is in the office.

One-to-One Nat setup - each private IP has a public IP

Dynamic NAT setup - one private IP for each pc

All computers are on the same network range 192.168.1.x

Normally that shouldn't be a problem.  Most organizations have a PAT (which is the actual term for that you call Dynamtic NAT) and a NAT setup (usually the PAT is for the users as you're unlikely to have some 50 or more publics IPs with the NAT for certain servers).

I have a setup similar to yours (I've got a NAT address and everyone else uses PAT/Dynmatic Nat) and we don't have the problems that you're experiencing.

What kind of firewall are you using?  Also are you using a proxy server for your web browser?

Unfortunately I am not-at-all familiar with the Firebox firewall.

However, what you describe seems like a problem with the translation table.  Does this problem only occure for the people with Dynamic Nat, or does it only happen to the people with the 1-to-1 NAT, or does it happen to both of them?

But if you, for instance, get rid of the 1-to-1 NAT does the problem go away?  If this was related to the translation table, the 1-to-1 NAT shouldn't really be affected...  so it might be something else.

Or this problem might not be related to the NAt at all.

This actually sounds like it might be a caching issue. Do you use a proxy/ISA server?

Sorry to join in the conversation btw.

Is there any overlap between the dynamic address pool and any of the static nat entries?
How many public IP addresses do you have?
