Hybrid NAT mode that is a mix of Auto+Manual
|Affected version:||Affected Architecture:|
Often we suggest people switch to manual outbound NAT to make some very basic adjustments (such as a static port for 5060 from a PBX for certain SIP trunks) but it seems like overkill to make them discard all of the other benefits of Automatic Outbound NAT for small changes.
It would be nice to have a NAT mode that would respect the custom rules first, and then have the auto rules (which should be shown in the GUI while in auto mode) respected after the custom rules.So the NAT choices could be:
- Fully Automatic Outbound NAT - No change from current behavior - Rules are ignored.
- Hybrid Outbound NAT - Rules are honored, auto rules after.
- Fully Manual NAT - No change from current behavior - Only custom rules are honored, no auto rules.
This way, if a user needs a simple adjustment (static port, or a no-nat rule, etc) they can benefit from aspects of both methods.
