NAT is not a supported configuration in SRM (2015819)


While configuring  reciprocity between two SRM sites, you might see the following error message:
A communication error occurred receiving data from the server ''. (The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive.)

If the connection uses NAT, the IP address in the error message is the private IP address.


When pairing SRM sites, use credential-based authentication and network routing without NAT. When the server certificate has the expected thumbprint value, the connection is established.
