my CISCO 3925 router is handling pppoe, NAT, and DHCP server..

My local LAN is 192.168.1.x and it's behind that NAT.

I'm trying to enable access to a DNS server that's on this LAN (192.168.1.191 tcp/udp 53) from the outside.

Here is what I have, access from WAN to that DNS server is not currently possible.. Any ideas why?

  • I have not worked with IOS NAT in years but maybe the cause is access list 1 superscedes the static port address translation for port 53 you have for the DNS server. Check the NAT table entries to see if the DNS server is actually getting the port 53 translation or if the general NAT overload is taking place first. Share the output of 'show ip nat translation' May need to add 'extended' on the static NAT rules to allow related port forwarding. Your ISP may block port 53 anyway. You do not need a static route for 192.168.1.0/24, it is already connected on the interface. May 20, 2023 at 18:34

Solved - this works:

ip nat inside source list 1 interface Dialer1 overload
ip nat inside source list nat-list interface Dialer1 overload
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.1.191 53 193.162.105.108 53 extendable
ip nat inside source static udp 192.168.1.191 53 193.162.105.108 53 extendable
