port-forwarding (Destination NAT Next Gen Services)


Hierarchy Level


Configure a port forwarding map, which translates the original destination port of a packet to a different port. This translation is a static, one-to-one mapping.

Port forwarding allows a packet to reach a host within a masqueraded, typically private, network, based on the port number on which the packet was received from the originating host. An example of this type of destination is the host of a public HTTP server within a private network.



Name of the port forwarding map.

destined-port port-id

Original destination port number.

translated-port port-id

Port number to which the original port is mapped.
