Scenario

Your customer has the following environment. The servers sit on the customers internal VLANs, the virtual servers will exist in another VLAN in the DMZ. The customer does not want to rework their networking and does not wish to use the LTM as the default gateway. Our solution will be to use SNATs to force traffic to pass through the BIG-IP to return through the LTM.
