SNAT related question

When you do a SNAT on a connection, is only the IP replaced or both the source IP and the MAC ?

Both will be replaced , but keep in mind that you can't work with mac addresses when dealing with connections from the internet(or another network), because routers will replace the mac address when routing(with or without NAT). Therefore to the hosts on the LAN, any traffic that comes from beyond that router including the router itself will have the router's mac address.
