Just wanted someone to clarify if my understanding is correct.
Scenario when the client is talking to the VIP (Source is Client IP and Destination is VIP). As the packet reaches LTM, with SNAT configured, the source IP becomes the SNAT IP and backend server becomes the destination IP.
Now when the server replies to the SNAT IP (i.e Server IP is the source and Destination is the SNAT IP) and from there on my understanding says VIP will be the source IP and client IP will be the destination for the reply to reach the client.
Please confirm if the understanding of "VIP will be the source IP and client IP will be the destination" is correct.
Follow this use case:
Let me know if you need more details.
