In Checkpoint you have few options in creating NAT rules. Each option creates NAT rules in the NAT Rules policy a bit differently, here is how.
- Automatic Hide rule. Creates 2 NAT rules: one where the source is the object and the destination is the network in which the objects reides, i.e. disables NAT for the same destination case. The second rule is object as a source destination Any, translate to the Hide NAT IP.
- Automatic Static NAT rule. It creates also 2 rules: object as a source with destination Any, translate to the chosen IP, and source is Any destination is object (meaning its external IP) translate to the object (meaning its internal IP).
Always remember of course that Automatic NAT rules are created below the manual ones and Checkpoint passes the rules from the top down so order matters.
