What limitations or requirements are there for NAT-dst?
Destination NAT

Are there limitations and requirements for destination NAT configurations?


  • Only one continuous address range is permitted in the destination address field of the policy
    • To accommodate disjointed destination address ranges, define multiple policies.
  • Any packet whose destination IP fails off the destination range (due to the DIP pool address have been depleted), it will not be translated.  It will be sent to the original destination address; the packet will not be dropped.
  • The NetScreen device must have routes in its routing table to both the original destination network and the translated destination address.
  • For one-to-one and many-to one NAT-dst configurations, the original destination IP address and the translated destination address must be in the same security zone.
