Configure Sonicwall 2040 for fiber with vlans and NAT

I have been thrown a SonicWall 2040 that I have to unlock since it was abandoned.

We have a Cogent Fiber connection coming in with a /30 for the inbound route and assigned a /27 for assignable.

I want to be able to assign out into the DMZ the /27 addresses as well as do a standard NAT set, and if possible perform a few vlan's for the Private NAT ranges.

I usually do this on a CISCO ASA platform but the client already has this unit and would like to get it working if possible.

so, you want to create a new private subnet on a DMZ and NAT to some private hosts on the DMZ?  not clear what you are trying to do here.

I found out once we reset the unit that its running OS 3.0 Standard which is looks like does not even have the option for VLANs

But the main part of the question was that we are provided a /30 IP address for the fiber for the WAN side and then we have a /26 of assignable IP addresses that we are able to route from the carrier.

The idea was to have a DMZ area for the /26 and then have a standard network interface for the regular Private Ip address range.

Don't exactly understand the question, but you can set the DMZ in transparant mode.

yes, the sonicwall will NAT natrually as it's supposed to.  tie your /27 to the WAN interface and setup a private IP on the X0 interface (LAN).  the sonicwall will NAT when you try to access the internet.  to setup a DMZ using the /27 subnet, follow this article.

you can only vlan with the enhanced OS.
