    Hi !

     

    Just to save CPU cycles, as it makes no sense to do a source NAT when the destination is not reachable or the security policy is not permitting the traffic.

    To anticipate your next question: destination NAT has to be done before, otherwise you cannot do a lookup of the destination

     

    regards
