Hi, I've got a voip application which needs either a Static NAT or a complete DMZ. Firewall is an old Watchguard X700 Firewall.

Can someone post a step by step to get the box to do DMZ to an internal machine. Statically map an external address to an internal for example.

We've done this as many times but it's just not working.

Thanks

If you have a public IP which you would like to dedicate for the VoIP device so that WG would not do any
PAT, then configure 1-1 NAT as below:
http://watchguard.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1545/kw/1-1%20NAT%20configuration/session/L3NpZC9pTjd0dENhaw%3D%3D

Also, ensure that the public IP you have selected for 1-1 NAT was not previously added for static NAT forwarding by adding under external aliases:
http://watchguard.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1318/session/L3NpZC9pTjd0dENhaw%3D%3D

Finally create a service to allow traffic from external host/subnet to this 1-1 NAT public IP [or use ANY for testing purposes and then narrow down the service to fewer ports/protocols]; explained in the first article.

Please update.

Thank you.
