title: Disabling NAT for a single subnet on the Unifi USG

Wow, it's been a year since I've published a blog post. Oops.

Super simple one today: Client has a USG in their space, and a routed /29 subnet
from their ISP. We want to throw that subnet on a VLAN so we can hang certain
pieces of gear directly off the internet; crucially, _without NAT_. 

First, configure the subnet as normal in the USG GUI. **Remember that Unifi
uses the first IP address to define a network: for ``,
type `` etc.**

To disable NAT, use the following snippet in your [`config.gateway.json`][json]:

[json]: https://help.ui.com/hc/en-us/articles/215458888-UniFi-USG-Advanced-Configuration

	"service": {
		"nat": {
			"rule": {
				"5999": {
					"exclude": "''",
					"outbound-interface": "eth0",
					"source": {
						"address": ""
					"type": "masquerade"

Replace `eth0` with your WAN interface (on a USG Pro, WAN1 is `eth2` and WAN2 is
`eth3`) and obviously replace `` with your routed subnet. 


_Do I still do soundtracks to blogposts? Anyway, the soundtrack to this
blogpost is [Polo & Pan's **Caravelle**][soundtrack]. It's so French. **So** French._
