Network Monitor Probe with NAT?

Seems like our Network Monitor Probes are going out as the WAN Interface IP, and not honoring NAT rules we have tried at top priority. Is NAT possible with Network Monitor Ping Probes?

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    If you are trying to utilize Network Monitor probing for any WAN resource from the firewall itself, NATTING is not required. i.e., SonicWall tries to probe the WAN resource directly using its WAN public IP and hence no need of performing any NAT for this scenario. The default created NAT policies when the WAN interface is configured helps the SonicWall.

    Source on the Network Monitor probe is always going to be interface IP of the firewall which is selected in the "Outbound Interface" field in the Network Monitor Policy configuration.
