SonicWall SOHO3 one-to-one NAT configuration
Posted on 2004-09-28
My company's LAN has a SonicWall SOHO3 that serves as a NAT/Firewall/VPN appliance. There is a web server behind it running Windows 2000 Server / IIS 5 for a custom ASP application (live site). The previous IT person had a Redhat 9 server running as webserver, FTP server, and mail server outside the firewall. I would like that LINUX box to be inside the firewall for obvious reasons. This LINUX box HAS TO RUN the apache web server ! There are perl scripts written exclusively for linux and they will not run on Windows. This is also a live server and can not be taken down for too long. It has been relying on the Linux firewall for protection until now.
We have a T1 line with multiple IP addresses and I wanted to implement One-to-One NAT so that if the request was for IP 126.96.36.199 (example) then SonicWall would do port forwarding to multiple LAN PCs including the port 80 request for HTTP to the Windows 2000 server, FTP requests to come to my workstation etc..., if the request was for IP 188.8.131.52 (example) it would forward all requests, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP to the LINUX server.
Is this a working solution? Has anyone implemented it? Any other solutions?
