Can someone explain to me what SNAT-ON-VIP is and what it does.

I can't find a great deal of information about it.

Many thanks

    This command, configured within SLB Common or within a Virtual Port, allows the VIP to perform source nat based upon inside / outside interface definitions and a defined NAT pool.

    In the below example, internet clients connect to the "inside" interface, and the "outside" interface connects to the Real Servers

    Clients would receive a source-nat IP of

    ### VIP Source NAT Configuration Example (CLI Example)
    ### The following commands configure the elements that SNAT on VIP require.
    ### Configure NAT on the inside and outside interfaces:
    interface ve 300
    ip address
    ip nat inside
    interface ve 400
    ip address
    ip nat outside
    ### Configure the access list and NAT pool.
    access-list 1 permit any
    ip nat pool natpool1 netmask /24
    ip nat inside source list 1 pool natpool1
    ### Enable SNAT on VIP vPort
    slb virtual-server vip1
      port 443 https

    Does that help clarify?
