NAT with IP address conservation
In a source or destination NAT security policy that accepts SIP sessions, you can configure the SIP ALG or the SIP session helper to preserve the original source IP address of the SIP message in the i= line of the SDP profile. NAT with IP address conservation (also called SIP NAT tracing) changes the contents of SIP messages by adding the source IP address of the originator of the message into the SDP i= line of the SIP message. The SDP i= line is used for free-form text. However, if your SIP server can retrieve information from the SDP i= line, it can be useful for keeping a record of the source IP address of the originator of a SIP message when operating in a NAT environment. You can use this feature for billing purposes by extracting the IP address of the originator of the message.
