Watchguard x750e routing problems

I'm working with a Watchguard x750e (11.1.3) and I'm having routing problems configuring a load balancer.

Using a 1-to-1 NAT and a rule with a Static NAT, I can reach one server but if I remove the 1-to-1 NAT and add the load balancer option (round robin) there is no way to reach the servers.

I tried with two network cards on the servers, but, due all the issues right now is just one network card (a pretty basic setup)

Any suggestions?

You can only configure server load balancing with static NAT.

Have a look at link:

Thank you.

According to your answer and due I have a PPoE connection it will be necessary to install an additional router between the bridge and the watchguard, to assign a fixed IP address, correct?

There are few flavors of NAT on WG:
static NAT; where based on public IP and port/protocol pair you forward inbound traffic to different internal server IP/port/protocol.
1-1 NAT; where you map one public IP to one specific internal server IP for ALL ports/protocols.

What I meant is that you should use static NAT and NOT 1-1 NAT as you mentioned in your original post.

Look at article for exact configuration steps.

Thank you.

I already did follow those steps, and the problem is due I'm using a PPoE connection I cannot set an static IP (due I have to provide user/pwd) and I was reffering to the 1-to-1 NAT example to indicates that the incoming traffic is working, but for an unknown reason in a load balancer mode without 1-to-1 there is not... to me seems like there is routing step that I'm missing but don't know exactly where.
