dmz subnet is outside of wan subnet sonicwall NSA 2400

then assigned ip addresses provided to us are 123.123.123.1/255.255.255.224 while the wan ip address 111.111.111.229/255.255.255.252  

x0:lan - 192.168.168.1/255.255.255.0
x1:wan - 111.111.111.229/255.255.255.252
x2:dmz(?)

how do I apply the 123.123.123.1/255.255.255.224 addresses to the dmz? and to nat addresses?   I know how when I set the subnet to wan 255.255.0.0 but that results is blocked traffic and obviously incorrect.  so I already have the address objects etc. defined.  
I just need to know how to apply the assigned ip range to an interface which falls outside of the wan subnet.

Yes. Well, like the 2040, you *can* if you choose set the interface up as Transparent but unless you are running something which REALLY doesn't like NAT, a private range and NAT mapping would be by far the easiest route.

Then your LAN to DMZ routes, if any, are simply from private range to private range.

It's still "external" as far as your LAN zone(s) are concerned, i.e. traffic from DMZ to LAN still has to re-pass the firewall and be matched by DMZ-to-LAN rulesets or it won't happen, so a compromise of a DMZ host does not expose your LAN to the baddies.

Set the DMZ up as a SEPARTE private range, and NAT taht on to a differen't ip addres or set of addresses in the publich range available. e.g.

LAN = 192.168.168.1/24
WAN = 111.111.111.229/28
DMZ = 172.30.0.1/24

LAN email server (say) at 192.168.168.33  - NAT 1:1 mapping to 111.111.111.231
DMZ web server (say) at 172.30.0.24  - NAT 1:1 mapping to 111.111.111.232

so move it completely from an externla dmz to an internal network with natting...  ok..   just asking because the setup of the 2400 is quite a bit different that the 2040pro(standardOS) that it is replacing.
