First do you have the Sonicwall enterprise(enhanced) firmware installed on it or the standard? Flash it to enterprise if not.

What do you mean by randomly? If each user needs a Public IP address assigned to their computer you can setup a One-to-One NAT.  I'm not sure about the Pro2040 but on some of the other SonicWALLs you can set this up by going under the Network tab and selecting One-to-One NAT.

Are you trying to setup 2 IP's for load balancing so that if one connection goes down the other connection will take over without user intervention or downtime?  Can you give more details on what you are wanting to accomplish?

One-to-One NAT is a direct option under 2040 Standard edition.. on enhanced you have to setup inside/outside networks... simple... but sometimes can be confusing..  But a single sonicwall 2040 can only be assigned two external ips if you configure load balancing or you are running Enhanced and you define X1 and X2 as external links  then only have the Lan connected to it.. ie you do not have a DMZ defined.  but before I go on..  what exactly are you trying to do?

in order to use it random (ony enhanced version)

go to

 Network > WAN Failover & Load Balancing        

check Enable Load Balancing
select Per Connection Round-Robin

outgoing traffic will be random as you want

The question was answered by everyone, but probably best by SABIOIT.  I feel it would be unfair to the people who answered the question to delete it without awarding point for correct answers.
