I have a SonicWall NSA 420 and 5 external IPs (.194 - .198).  Currently all traffic on all zones are reporting the same external IP (.194) and I need traffic from a single internal box to report a different external IP (.197).
How can I configure this NSA to report different external IPs?

    Outbound nat rule for that machines service?

    d3ath5tar has it. Do you need to poke a hole in your firewall WAN > LAN? If so, then run the public server wizard and go back changing the egress NAT rule to make the translated source the public IP that you want represented.

    If not, then do this:

    Egress NAT rule:

    Original Source: Internal IP
    Translated Source: Desired public IP
    Original Destination: Any
    Translated Destination: Original

    Thank you.  I was able to create the egress nat rule following your instructions.
