Configuring NAT rules in Micro Edge


You can configure NAT Rules in case you have multiple Internet-routable IP addresses and want to use specific ones based on special conditions. For example, you may want outgoing SMTP traffic to use a specific WAN IP address. This feature is commonly used in combination with port forwarding to configure 1-to-1 NAT for an internal system. 

Note: Before configuring NAT Rules, make sure you assign IP aliases to your designated WAN interface and test that you can ping them from remote networks.

Adding / Editing NAT Rules

  1. Go to Settings > Network > NAT to configure NAT Rules.
  2. Click Add Rule or edit an existing rule by clicking the edit icon image13.png next to the item.
  3. Give the rule a description.
  4. Set conditions for your rule. See Rules Overview for conditions syntax and rule execution.
  5. Set an Action of New Source and enter the IP alias you want to use.
  6. Click Save to confirm the new rule. 


When choosing the Action for the rule:

New Source Enables you to specify a particular IP that matching traffic will be NAT'd to.
Masquerade Ensures that matching traffic will be NAT'd to the IP address of the interface that the traffic leaves from.
