A user fails to access a server through a public address when the user on the AR and the server are in the same VLAN and the NAT server is configured on the VLANIF interface

A private user device and server connect to the same VLANIF interface on the same subcard. When the NAT server is configured on the VLANIF interface to map the public network address of the server, the response packets sent by the server to the private user device cannot be sent to the CPU for translation. As a result, the private user device cannot connect to the server. To solve this problem, configure outbound NAT on the VLANIF interface. The response packets sent by the server to the user device pass the AR and the address in the packets is translated. Then the AR forwards the packets to the private user device. The private user device can connect to the server.
