I have always Sonicwall firewalls in NAT mode on the LAN interface. I now have some IP devices that the vendor says cannot use NAT in order to obtain a public IP address. These devices have to sit on my LAN interface so I can't simply put them on the DMZ and use transparent mode. This firewall is primarily used as an ISP router with customers behind it. It works great for that but having to assign public IPs to devices on the LAN interface has now caused a problem.
My question is if SonicWall enhanced or standard support this type of configuration and if so are there some examples anywhere on the Internet to show how to configure it? My other question is, would there be a better device suited for this type of application so i could pass Public IPs through the same network where I have private IPs without using NAT? Thanks for any help.
