Short answer: No

Long answer:
Server NAT allows you to make a second (or more) IP(s) available for
Inbound NAT rules. If you set a Server NAT for ***.***.77.7 - then you
can select the .7 address when creating Inbound NAT rules.

Once you create the Server NAT the drop down menu for External address
in the Inbound NAT mappings will include the Server NAT address as an
option. The default External address on Inbound NAT rules is the
"Interface address" (this mean WAN IP).
