Source / Destination NAT question

Have a case where i want to re-write the source-IP and destination-port on traffic heading to the internet.

 

So coming in from the private network as 10.1.1.1 -> 2.2.2.2:4000 and changing as it leaves to the internet to 3.3.3.3 -> 2.2.2.2:443.  The part i'm struggling with is preserving the original destination IP.

 

For the NAT policy rule, on the translated packet under Destination Address Translation, I cannot find an option to use the original destination address.  It requires that I specify a translated Address. 

 

Is it possible to just preserve the original or am i missing something.

Hello,

Not sure why you would want this? But it could present asymetrical routing and cause the application/traffic to not work correctly.
