    Hi Rohit,


    first the overload command must be in nat config if you are not using dynamic NAT, but if you enter clear NAT and then its work, i think something about full entries in the nating transltion, which no more supporting any entries. how many client you have it must support all the translations because Maximum number of allowed NAT entries. Range is from 1 to 2147483647. or

    One of the most common problems with a new NAT configuration is not NAT itself, but routing. Remember that you are changing a source or destination address in a packet; after the translation, does the router know what to do with the new address?

    and check IP nat translation timeout

    ip nat translation {timeout | udp-timeout | dns-timeout | tcp-timeout | finrst-timeout | icmp-timeout | pptp-timeout | syn-timeout | port-timeout} {seconds | never}

    As denton mentioned, overload is typically desired.  This allows port translation instead of one to one nat and effectively increases the amount of translations available substantially.  The question is are you running out of translations with legitimate traffic, or do you have a virus or malware on your network.  If you are using one to one nat (no overload command), you may very well just be running out of translation slots.  However, if you are doing overload and running out of translation slots, I'd start looking at the translations and what inside local address you are seeing the most of.
