vpn interface nat— Configure a vEdge router to act as a NAT device (on vEdge routers only).

In the transport VPN (VPN 0), you can configure multiple NAT interfaces. In this configuration traffic is load-balanced, via ECMP, among the interfaces.

You can configure a NAT on a physical interface or on a natpool interface. You cannot configure NAT on a loopback interface. Note that for a natpool interface, you can configure only the interface's IP address, shutdown and no shutdown command, and the nat command and its subcommands. You cannot configure another other interface commands.
