Hello all,

I'm trying to figure out how to do sourceNAT on a Sonicwall NSA-2400, SonicOS Enhanced

On the LAN side I've got 5 vlans coming in on a trunk on interface X5:

on the WAN side I've got interface X1 connected to is X1 IP is gateway

I would like:
VLAN25 to use for WAN traffic
VLAN26 to use for WAN traffic
VLAN27 to use for WAN traffic
VLAN28 to use for WAN traffic
VLAN29 to use for WAN traffic

How do I configure NAT policies on the Sonicwall for this scenario?

Since the sonicwall is routing your vlan traffic, it should be simple to setup the NAT policy. Use the template below for each subnet you want to create the egress NAT policy.

Original Source: Use the VLAN subnet address object here
Translated Source: Use the public IP address you want to NAT to
Original Destination: Any
Translated Destination: Original
Original Service: Any
Translated Service: Original
Inbound/Outbound Interface: Any on both
