DMZ with single WAN IP on SonicWall TZ-200?

Last Modified: 2013-11-16
Hello all,
      Im using Sonicwall O.S. and was wondering if it is possible to bridge or otherwise connect my WAN interface to a DMZ interface for the purpose of putting up a webserver that I want to keep isolated from the LAN segment.  This would be easy if I had several IPs available but currently only have 1.  I suppose port fowarding the WAN ip to a LAN ip is one way of doing this, but honestly it kind of gives me the willies.  If possible, Id like to map the WAN ip to a DMZ port and assign the WAN ip to the server and have it respond to port 80. Can this be achieved with Layer 2 bridging between the 2 interfaces?

Any help is appreciated!
