Transparent indicates whether client IP addresses are visible to the backend servers. If Transparent is not selected (default value), backend servers see the traffic source IP as a Load balancer internal IP. If Transparent is selected, source IP is the real client IP and NSX Edge must be on the path of the server response. A typical design is to have the server default gateway be the NSX Edge.
