For a BIG-IP® device, the local endpoint is the WAN Optimization Manager™ (WOM®) on the system where you are working. The remote endpoint is the WAN Optimization Manager on another BIG-IP system (on the other side of the WAN), with which the local endpoint interacts. After you identify the endpoints, communication between the WAN Optimization Managers takes place in an iSession™ connection between the two BIG-IP WOM devices.
|Default||Indicates that the system uses the SNAT value set for the local endpoint.|
|None||Indicates that the system uses the original connecting client IP address.|
|Local||Indicates that the system uses the endpoint IP address closest to
the destination. Use this setting to make sure the return route also
goes through the BIG-IP system so that both sides of the connection can
Tip: This setting is useful if responses returning from the server to the client would not normally pass through the BIG-IP system.
|Remote||Indicates that the system uses the source IP address of the incoming iSession connection. Use this setting when an appliance that uses NAT is located between the WOM endpoints.|
