Assigning a public IP to a Sonicwall TZ 170
Posted on 2004-09-11
I am working on hosting a webserver on my private LAN. I have a 2Wire DSL modem, which connects me to my ISP. The 2Wire modem has a built in switch with DHCP and was assigned a public IP by my ISP, but it has built in NAT which converts the public IP to a private IP address pool. I have a Sonicwall TZ 170 which connects to the DSL modem's switch. I want to assign the Sonicwall a public IP address of 70.XXX.XX.XXX with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.248.
My question is this: How can I assign a public to the Sonicwall that is on an entirly different network from the DHCP pool of the 2Wire modem? How do I get the Sonicwall to access the internet if it's assigned a public IP?
Any help would be appreciated.
