# diag debug flow filter port 3389
# diag debug flow show console enable
# diag debug console time en
# diag debug flow trace start 9999

-You are using policy based VPN
-The connection was initiated from to server
-The server is located behind fortigate and reachable via Fortigate LAN interface.
-Fortigate is doing a SNAT of changing the source to which is the interface IP address of Fortigate LAN interface, But on the policy Source NAT was not enabled
-Disabled the SNAT in the phase2 configuration using the following commands

config vpn ipsec phase2
edit <name of the tunnel>
set use-natip disable

– After disabling it we tested and we could see that now fortigate is not changing the source
– But from the captures we can see that fortigate is forwarding the packets via LAN interface but we are not getting any response.
