Sonicwall - Static Routes

Hi,

Im trying to configure static routes.  I have 6 public IP addresses and I'm looking to configure them on the firewall to map to internal servers on the LAN - web, ftp & email etc.  So I'm just looking at simple NAT

Under Network > Settings.........WAN has NAT ENABLED.

Under Static routes I've configured a route as follows:

Destination Network = Public IP
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.255
Gateway = Internet LAN IP of Server
Interface = LAN

These don't appear to be working, I'm a little confused as I've taken the settings from our old firewall.

What do I need to do to get these working ?

Also do I need to configure route advertisment on the LAN ?  The only router I have is the one supplied by our ISP.

Thanks again
Steve

Are trying to give each server a public address, or to give all the public addresses to the firewall and then have it forward from specific public addresses to specfic private addresses?

You might also need to tell us what brand and model this firewall is?

Thanks for the reply.

I've worked this out now and everything is ok.

What is the route advertisment for though ?

Um, I remember learning something about route advertisement. Are you talking about RIP1 RIP2 etc.
These are methods of telling higher level routers (ie your ISP) about the structure of you network. Route advertisement allows this info to be update dynamically and automatically. In large networks this is handy incase some router or link does down and there is an alternate way around. In small networks, like the ones on the end of a single ISP connection, they tend to use static routing rather than route advertisement. The ISP just sets up their router's route table to say that your first IP address will have your router on it, and all others can be contacted through that.
