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?

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
