Sonicwall TZ170 and setting up a LAN while leaving a webserver with its own public IP

I want to setup a TZ170 so that one public IP address points to our VPN LAN and so that the other points to a webserver on the same LAN which will need a different public IP address.  Has anyone done anything resembling my crude diagram below?


                                          webserver with public IP #1
                                           /
WAN ----------Sonicwall TZ170 with public IP #2
                                           \
                                           LAN PCs

Yes,

You will need to use the OPT ZONE(on the back of the TZ-170, sometimes labeled DMZ) for the webservers LAN, configure your routing tables so that each of the Public IP's know where to terminate(which IP range) and you should be good to go...the two LAN's will have distinct IP ranges so if information is to be shared internally from the webserver to the VPN LAN another static route will need to be written to bridge the two subnets...cheers.

Hope this helps,

With your TZ170 standard you only have one public IP address.

If you must use two public IP addresses you will need to upgrade the firware on the TZ170 to the enhanced version and use the alternate port as a second WAN access to the internet connecting both ports to a switch then to your modem.

Either way:

Configure the VPN through the VPN Page and setup an acess rule in the Firewall page to forward all Http: (Port 80) traffic to the local IP address of the server.

Hi again...

artffjr is correct..you will need the enhanced version of the firmware, which I neglected to mention...

Where do I find the enhanced version of the software?  Only the standard version is available from mysonicwall.com for the TZ170.

Part number is 01-SSC-5568
Retail is $500.00

Here is a source that is less than retail:

As a dealer I can not purchase this for less than above.
