NAT Logging?

Not applicable

Does anyone know if the system logs previous NAT translations?  I have the public IP of one of our users who may have committed a copyright violation and need to trace to the private IP.  Also, is there any way to set the duration of NAT translations?

Thanks in advance!

The detailed view in the traffic log will show the original source IP> With NAT it can be cumbersome to find the real IP> If you are using static NAT, there is always a one-to-one mapping and it becomes easy to get to original source. However if you are using dynamic-IP, multiple sources can get translated to the same public IP.  If you haven't deleted the logs you can filter by destination and they look at detalied traffic logs to find the original source.

Thank you
