NAT in Fortigate

What's the effect of turning on / off NAT in the Fortigate Policy ?

If NAT is on with "Use Outgoing Interface Address" , which IP address will be used for translation ? Will it translate original source or destination IP address in the packet ?

Thx.

it will use the public IP address of the WAN interface. If you want to use another address - add mapping under IP POOLS under Firewall and Policy
