About DIPP

Hi guys.

I checked the specsheet of PA5000 series that showed DIPP, Unique destination IPs per source port and IP, for NAT. but I cannot understand clearly that meaning.

What is DIPP means and when do I use that function?

Thanks.

Regards.

Roh.

Hi,

DIPP stands for: Dynamic IP and Port (source). With DIPP you are able to translate not only the IP addresses but also the source port of the original packet (for some applications it could be not appropriate...)

DIP stands for: Dynamic IP. With DIP you can translate the IP address and only the IP address, leaving the source port of the original packet unchanged.

I suggest you to read "Understanding NAT.pdf", cause there are particular tips to keep in mind when creating a NAT and Security policy related...
