Sonic wall 170

I have a Windows 2003 server running a web application using IIS on port 80 and a Red hat 7.3 server running a web application using Apache Tomcat on Port 8080.  If I add a Sonicwall 170 between the ISP Cable Modem and existing router/wireless switch; and connect the Windows and Red Hat Servers to ports 2 and 3 ; and then add a new service (port fordward) rule that maps the wan IP to (Windows Server) and Wan IP to (Red Hat).  Please tell me what you think about the Wan to Lan Network Design Concept using a Sonicwall 170 approach I have listed.  I am open to any suggestions.  Also, Should I connect the old Router/Switch to the Opt zone port or Port 3 of the sonic wall?

Thank you,

That looks correct. Only thing to check would be if the cable modem is passing public ip to the internal network ? Otherwise you'd have to put that in bridge mode so that you get the public ip directly assigned onto sonicwall.
