What happens in the system when I configure/bind vip to floating-ip for Neutron lbaas. I understand port-id is used as a common interface between floating-ip and binded VIP; but I could not see how it is created/ managed internally by system. Running 'ip netns' shows namespace of lbaas-xxx and qdhcp-xxx;
how packets coming to floating-ip is mapped to vip; Is it through NATing? If so then we can manage things using iptables?

It would be good if you can redirect me to some blogs which talks on this.
