Hi all. Kindly guide me in this since i dont know why its happening
I have 3 routers connected via serial interfaces like this
R1 IP = 184.108.40.206
R2 IP(for R1) = 220.127.116.11
R2 IP(for R3) = 10.0.0.2
R3 IP = 10.0.0.3
Now R2 is connected to R1 on Se0/0
to R3 on Se0/1
I have configured se0/1 ip nat inside
se0/0 ip nat outside
ip nat inside source static 10.0.0.23 18.104.22.168
Now when R1 sends a packet destined to 22.214.171.124 R2 doesnt reply but performs translation first ! and sends the packet out to R3. This is i have tested and its working 100% what i described. My confusion is why is this so ? a packet destined to router itself why its being translated first ?
In order to check further i applied a PBR, which purpose is, if any packet from 126.96.36.199 comes for 188.8.131.52 just send it to R3 (10.0.0.3). I have applied the policy as local and interface PBR but its not working !!!.
Can someone explain me this behaviour.
