Fortigate 80C - If in NAT operating mode why have additional NAT option in a firewall policy?
Posted on 2010-11-18
Just setting up a Fortigate 80C. It is running in NAT mode.
When creating firewall policies, I see that there is an option to select "NAT".
Bearing in mind that the router is already in NAT mode, so...
Why would this NAT option exist when creating a firewall policy?
What is the significance of this option in a firewall policy as opposed to the router's primary operating mode?
The NAT option is there for inbound policies as well, but why would I want to NAT inbound traffic?
Please enlighten me o great ones!
