First, look to see what flags you have currently running:
# ps -auxw | grep natd
root      138  0.0  0.0   636  352  ??  Ss   18Apr03   7:59.22 /sbin/natd
-n rl0

Then, try this first:
# killall -HUP natd

If that doesn't work, then this will:
# kill `ps -auxw | grep natd | awk '{print $2}'`
...then restart using youe same flags:
# /sbin/natd -n rl0

Hope this helps....
