DO note that for an N-to-N bi-map rule, original and translated address ranges, networks or host groups must be of the same size.
Bi-directional translation is generally used to allow access to a server from the outside with a public IP address that is not the same as the host’s real address
The “bi-map” action supports address ranges. Source and translated addresses are used in the following order: the “smallest” address in the source field is translated to the “smallest” address in the translated field.
When a virtual IP address is selected, the corresponding interface will be selected automatically. This interface will be used as the source of the redirection rule and as the destination for rules that rewrite the source.
|Delete||Deletes the selected line.|
|Move up||Places the selected line before the line just above it.|
|Move down||Places the selected line after the line just below it.|
|Expand all||Expands all rules in the tree.|
|Collapse all||Collapses all folders in the directory.|
|Cut||Cuts a NAT filter rule in order to duplicate it.|

|Paste||Duplicates a NAT rule after having copied it.|
|Search in logs||Whenever a NAT rule is selected, click on this button to automatically search for the name of the rule in the "All logs" view (Logs > Audit logs > Views module). If the selected rule has not been named, a warning message will indicate that the search cannot be performed.|
|Search in monitoring||Whenever a NAT rule is selected, click on this button to automatically search for the name of the rule in the connection monitoring module.|
|Reset rules statistics||Clicking on this button will reinitialize the digital and graphical counters showing how NAT rules are used, located in the first column of the table.|
When you click on the arrow on the right in the field containing a column’s name (example: Status), you will be able to display additional columns or remove columns so that they will not be visible on the screen, by checking or unchecking them.
If you click quickly 10 times on the “Up” button, you will see that the rule moves up but the waiting window will only appear when you leave the button for 2 or 3 seconds. And at the end, only a single command will be executed. Rules can be moved more much fluidly as such.
