F5 LTM – What is Auto Last Hop

The auto last hop feature ensures that traffic is sent back via the same hop from which it was sent.
This is done by the F5 forwarding traffic to the MAC address of the last hop. The last hop MAC address is recorded within the connection table along with the source and destination addresses.
