Help configuring NAT64 on a BIG-IP LTM

Hi everyone,


I have been trying to implement NAT64 in our network in order for IPv6 only clients can reach our IPv4 only servers. Being relatively new to the product, I have had a bit of difficulty with the details in the configuration. I have got a setup where I can ping the Self IPs of the device but could not achieve any sort of translation. I have also found that to enable NAT64, a CG-NAT module is required on the BIG-IP which we do not have. My supervisor however said that they had done it before.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,




  • You may need to run packet captures at this point to determine why the page isn't loading:


    tcpdump -nni 0.0:n -s0 host 2001:b3e:45f1:6121::7 (client side)


    tcpdump -nni 0.0:n -s0 host (server side)


    You can have pool members or virtual servers specifying all ports, but your pool member can't be monitored on all ports. The monitor must be specific to a certain protocol/port. If this is an HTTP connection only, then it's best to have your pool member configured with port 80.
