I have a Sonicwall Firewall PRO 4100 that I am using in my network which is directly connected to the Verizon line. My manager has just purchased a set of IP addresses that he wants to use for the servers for public access. If my interface has a WAN IP address of 66.66.66.12 and the set of IP addresses that he purchased are 66.70.70.0/24. How do I configure the SonicWall with those Public IP addresses as being legitimate. That way when I setup a Public server with a private and public Ip address, I would like the new address to be accepted.

Are you sure it's a /24?  Also, did they provide you with a new gateway or a gateway with the new public IP addresses?  if not, then they've simply configured their routers to send traffic for those public IPs to your sonicwall.  just specify one of the new public IP addresses they gave you in the firewall rule.

We have a T1 and yes they gave us a whole class of IP addresses, at least that is what my manager says so I need to add that range of IP addresses as ours. The gateway is the same since it uses the WAN interface, it uses 66.66.66.1 for the 66.66.66.12 WAN interface. Therefore, we would like to route those IP addresses through the WAN interface.
Should I just setup a network object with the network address and setup a routing entry?

Actually i just answered my own question, You see I have 2 WANs on my SonicWall, 1 WAN interface is for the servers and the second one is for client computers. I wanted to know if the WAN interface would route an IP address different than its subnet and it is as long as it is in the same class. Anyway, digitap as usual you get the points.
