Public Address Cannot Be Pinged When NAT Is Configured on the Device as the Egress Gateway. How Do I Solve the Problem?
Solution
After outbound NAT is configured, run the ip soft-forward enhance enable command to enable the enhanced IP forwarding function before running the ping -a source-ip-address host command. The device then does not translate private source addresses into public addresses when sending packets.
