What happens if two services are seprated by NAT

I have broken purepaths, I think this is caused by a NAT between two services,

Is this a reasonable explenation?

Is there a way to tell Dynatrace to include the NAT

I don't think this would be the case, we don't do our tracking at the IP layer but rather through things like headers added to requests as they flow between tiers/agents. A header with an id is sent with the requests and we correlate based on that.

If purepaths are being broken or not linked together in some way it's more likely that that header we use for tracking is being stripped out at somepoint between the two tiers.

DT is using x-dynatrace header so you can add it as request attribute and look if there is match between purepaths that should be matched.
