NAT translation

Hello, i wanted to modify an IP nat translation on my 2811 router but it is saying that it is in use after the command "no ip nat..."  I have read somewhere that i have to do an clear ip nat translation* command.  Will this not disconnect anything other than the one i'm trying to modify?

Thank you,

No,  you will be safe to do that

Just issue "clear ip nat translation *"

Then modify your configurations.

This command will be after config t?

No, you can just run it in normal mode

One other note on this.  Clearing the nat trans will only work as long as there is no traffic flowing through the rule.  If there is, the translation will just pop back in.  You may have to remove the rule to install the edits.

Apologies for the delay in responding. You should be able to close this topic now.

 What we have done is take out a whole set of access list and deleted the NATing and after that we put the access list back.  Then change the NATing as required.

Thank you very much for all comments/responses.
