How to Enable Nat-Traversal in JUNOS-ES?

How to Enable Nat-Traversal in JUNOS Enhanced Services (JUNOS-ES)?

By default nat-traversal (NAT-T) is enabled for IKE gateways.  The default NAT-T keepalive is 5 seconds.  Therefore unless explicitly showing that NAT-T was disabled in the configuration, then the IKE phase 1 will attempt to use NAT-T if a NAT device is detected in the path between two peers.

You can confim if NAT-T was NOT disabled by viewing the configuration for the IKE gateway.

From J-Web:
  1. Navigate to Configuration > Quick Configuration > VPN > IKE.
  2. Confirm that the Disable NAT-Traversal box is NOT checked.
From CLI:
  1. From operational mode, enter command:
    show configuration security ike gateway <gateway name>

  2. Confirm that there is no-nat-traversal is NOT in the configuration.
