Created On 02/07/19 23:54 PM - Last Updated 02/07/19 23:55 PM

This document describes how to create and view NAT rules on the CLI (command line interface).



Use the following command to create a NAT rule on the CLI:

# set rulebase nat rules <NAT Rule Name> description <Description of NAT rule> from <Source Zone> to <Destination Zone> service <Service Type> source <Source IP Address>  destination <Destination IP address> source-translation <Type of Source Translation> interface-address interface <Interface Port number>


The example below create static NAT translation with dynamic IP and port and uses interface ethernet1/4.

> configure

# set rulebase nat rules StaticNAT description staticNAT from DMZ to L3-Untrust service any source any destination any source-translation dynamic-ip-and-port interface-address interface ethernet1/4

# commit

# exit


Once committed, use the following command to confirm creation of the NAT rule.

> show running nat-policy


StaticNAT {

        from DMZ;

        source any;

        to L3-Untrust;

        to-interface  ;

        destination any;

        service  any/any/any;

        translate-to "src: ethernet1/4 (dynamic-ip-and-port) (pool idx: 2)";

        terminal no;
