I have an Internet Gateway Device with based Linux System (Linux 2.6.30).
I mad ean automatic script that open many http sessions from many LAN Stations to many Public IP address. And I add capture on the wan interface and on the LAN interface And I found:
Some time the NAT keep the private address of the packet when the packet is forwarded to the wan (rarely happened)
Some time the NAT does not forward the TCP packet to the wan at all (rarely happened).
The above behaviour are rarely happened. If I launch the test 100 times it happens only 13 times.
Is it a known bug in the NAT of the Kernel? are there some patch to fix this issue?
