Creates an IP Network Address Translation (NAT) rule.
|ip||Specifies Internet Protocol (IP).|
|rule||Specifies creating a NAT rule.|
|rule_name||Specifies the NAT rule name.|
|type||Specifies the NAT translation type.|
|source-nat||Specifies modifying the source IP address for outbound traffic.|
|napt||Specifies modifying the source IP address and transport identifier for outbound traffic (Network Address Port Translation).|
|destination-napt||Specifies modifying the destination IP address and transport identifier for inbound traffic.|
The type option specifies the kind of translation that is carried out for the NAT rule.
To delete a rule, run the command delete ip nat rule rule_name.
User-created rules cannot be created with a name starting with “SYS_NAT_RULE_”.
The following example creates an IP NAT rule named "rule1" where the translation modifies the source IP address for outbound traffic:
# create ip nat rule rule1 type source-nat
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 31.2.
This command is available on the switches that support the IP NAT feature. For information about which switches support this and other features, see the Switch Engine 32.3 Feature License Requirements document.
