Changes to IP Masquerade and Firewall Rules in vCloud Director 5.1 (2036040)
For vCloud Director 5.1, the networking infrastructure was updated and the IP Masquerade setting was removed.
In addition, in vCD 1.x, external NAT-routed organization networks had a default firewall rule that would allow all outgoing traffic. In vCD 5.1, there are no default firewall rules.
To create the equivalent of vCD 1.x's default firewall rule, a system administrator must create an Edge Gateway and then a system or organization administrator should add a firewall rule that allows all outgoing traffic. Specifically, they should add a firewall rule where Source is internal, Destination is external, protocol is ANY, and action is Allow.
