About the NAT Pools Page

You are here: Network > NAT > Pools.

A NAT pool is a set of IP addresses that you can define and use for translation. NAT policies perform address translation by translating internal IP addresses to the addresses in these pools. Unlike static NAT, where there is a one-to-one mapping that includes destination IP address translation in one direction and source IP address translation in the reverse direction, with source NAT, you translate the original source IP address to an IP address in the address pool. With destination NAT, you translate the original destination address to an IP address in the address pool.

Use this page to configure source and destination NAT pools.
