NAT Reflection not working if LAN is bridged
I have been trying everything to get NAT reflection working. My last effort was to remove LAN bridge (which I wasn't really using anymore). And voila, NAT Reflection was working after loading the modified XML config without any interaction or changes - just a reboot.
I am 100% sure, that there are no other changes were made besides removing the brdige and moving DHCP Server (and everything else) to the LAN interface.
I am 100% sure that NAT reflection was not working before no matter what combination of settings I have tried.
I am 100% sure that NAT reflection is working now.

The only other explanation that came to my mind is that nat reflection might need a reboot to activate under some circumstances. This might be really hard to figure out. Furthermore I have made various reboots due to version upgrades. However only recently I tried a minimal setup with reflection disabled globally but only pure nat added to a few essential rules.
