Hello everyone! We have configured WAN and NAT on router the following way:
interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0 description WAN ip address 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.0 ip nat outside
! ip nat pool SS-INET 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 prefix-length 24 ip nat pool ITSH-INET 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 prefix-length 24 ip nat inside source list 50 interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0 overload ip nat inside source list 51 pool ITSH-INET overload ip nat inside source list 52 pool SS-INET overload ! ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 126.96.36.199 ! access-list 50 permit 10.1.0.0 0.0.0.255 access-list 51 permit 10.30.1.0 0.0.0.255 access-list 51 permit 10.30.2.0 0.0.0.255 access-list 52 permit 10.1.1.0 0.0.0.255
The router has been working with this configuration for about a year and now we've ran into some major problem: when I am trying to ping NATed addresses I get response from interface IP:
PING 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=0.937 ms 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=0.880 ms

the ICMP NAT translation timeout is 60 seconds, set that to:
ip nat translation icmp-timeout never
That would ensure that you can always ping the pool address...
there are numerous NAT timeouts that expire after 60 seconds by default:
I don't know which traffic exactly is affected in your case, but try to set all these values to never expire:
ip nat translation finrst-timeout never
ip nat translation port-timeout tcp never
ip nat translation port-timeout udp never
ip nat translation syn-timeout never
1. What if you do:
interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0 ip address 22.214.171.124 255.255.255.0 secondary
2. Are you originating that ping test from a:
a. host located behind this Gig0/0/0 with ip nat outside,
b. host behind an interface with ip nat inside,
c. Router itself,
d. where exactly?
3. The Router creates a 126.96.36.199/32 as a L - local entry in Routing Table only when traffic is originated by a host in the 10.1.1.0/24 based on your configuration. You won't be able to ping 188.8.131.52 for traffic hitting the ip nat outside if translations are not there because that L - local entry wouldn't be created.
Try configuring 184.108.40.206 as 'secondary' on your WAN interfaces as suggested in point #1.
