SNAT and Source IP load balancing

Hi All,



I'm hoping that this is a simple question to answer. I need to load balance requests by the source IP addresses of the incoming connection. However, I also need to NAT the source address. If I use SNAT can I also use source address load balancing or is the request NATd prior to it being load balanced?

  • Hi Phill,



    Load balancing selection is done before a serverside connection is established. By design SNAT has no impact on persistence or load balancing.



  • Hi hoolio,



    Many thanks for the update and it was the one I was looking for!
