I am failing at trying to create a rule for the F5 to change the origination IP address based on the destination IP address.

Scenario - There is a web server that has three IP addresses assigned to it. One of the three IP addresses is common use for the operations of the web server. When a web service request is originated on the web server, it needs to access an external exposed web site. The problem is, the firewall is requiring a different IP address to allow the traffic to get outside. it was suggested that the firewall can change the packet information, changing the origination IP address to a different IP address that is allowed to get out to the world.

Has anyone completed this type of action before?
