For route #1 in the attached file, does it mean any source coming through interface X0, it source IP will be translated to "WAN Primary IP" and then route to outgoing interface X1 ?

Since X0 is our internal LAN address, will that mean all source IP of the LAN traffic will be translated to "WAN Primary IP" and redirect to X1 interface ?  However, X1 interface doesn't connect to anything ?

Any idea ?

Hi AXISHK,

Yes, you are correct and X1 should be your default WAN. These are default NAT Policies for the default setup where X1 is your default WAN. Have you made the X2 your primary now? If communication is flowing this shouldn't be of concern, since there are about ~40 NAT policies above it...click All to view all NAT policies.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Yes, X2 is the default WAN and X0 is the LAN. The firewall had been setup few year ago and I'm now follow up the configuration.

So, the orginal policy aims to change the source LAN IP to the WAN IP before going out to internet, correct ? If yes, I can remove it from the policy.

The lowest priority number take the lowest Precedence, correct ?

If everything is function OK...I'd leave it. The fact that X2 is your Primary WAN is odd...so who knows what other weird configurations are present.

The lowest priority (1) takes the highest precedence.

If you have the network & firewall well documented...the best way to clean-up the firewall is factory default then start over from scratch.
