NAT traffic initiated by F5
I have a question regarding F5 (without AFM).
The equipment is configured with an interface in 192.168.0.0/16 and we would like to NAT the traffic initiated by the equipment and coming out of the interface. Is it possible ?
Hi RiD I'm not sure if this is supported on BIG-IP, so I'd run it by support first, but iptables totally supports that functionality, and the host OS (centos) has it in use for BIG-IP purposes. Take a look at /etc/sysconfig/iptables.default for the active rules. For an idea of what you're looking to do, you might need something like the below, assuming your management interface IP address is 192.168.1.5 and you want all outbound traffic to instead be mapped to 192.168.1.100.
Again, this is just an idea of what is possible on CentOS, not a tacit endorsement that this is supported.
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o mgmt -s 192.168.1.5 -p all -j SNAT --to 192.168.1.100
