NSA 9450 NAT Rule Question

Hello Sonicwall community,

I have a NAT rule that for some reason is not working. Looking at the UI, it is not being hit with any traffic.

I have it at the highest priority that I can, but traffic never hits it.

Rule is as follows.

Source net needs to access an internal server. But we need to use the external IP when making the request.

So I want the traffic to get to the firewall.

I want the firewall to see the destination of said traffic is NAT'ed to an internal IP, and redirect that traffic back internally to the proper location.

I actually followed the directions on the sonic wall site, but I have had no success. The NAT rule is not hit, and as such, my traffic is dropped because it thinks I am spoofing the IP now that it sees an internal IP coming in from the outside.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you

    You haven't mentioned access rules at all. So, is there an access rule that would allow this traffic?
