SideWinder order of operation

Hi, does anyone have a document on SideWinder order of operation they could share, i.e. routing, burb lookup, NAT etc - which order do these occur in?

Thanks in advance,

Re: SideWinder order of operation

That would be the correct order right there:  routing, burb, NAT.  The firewall receives a packet, looks at the routes, chooses the burbs on its interfaces based on the routes, then goes through the ACL rules and, if the session matches a particular rule with those burbs/zones, it will NAT or Redirect if the rule contains those settings.
