Sonicwall TZ210 config questions

Posted on 2011-09-27
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Setup: Sonicwall TZ210 with Fios as main line and T1 as backup.  Both with static IP's assigned.  Aside from our normal network, which includes an exchange server, we have a second self contained server that has it's own wan ip assigned to it.  the problem is that it needs to have traffic router to it on port 25(which is used by our exchange server) but only if directed to that specific wan ip that's assigned to this other server.  How can I accomplish this?

Also, we are migrating off of an ISA server which provides a layer of protection to Outlook Web Access, is there a built in feature of this model sonicwall to provide that extra layer of security for OWA?

Is the WAN ip address range for this "other server" the same as either the FIOS or T1 backup circuit?
That is, does the traffic to this systems now go through the Sonicwall. If not, how is it connected in your network?

It's a different static IP.  I guess it would have to be on the lan because both of the wan ports on the sonicwall will be taken up.  Can't I do one rule that has the destination of the first server, and a second rule with the same port that has the destination of the second server?

As long as you have Sonic OS enhanced later than 5.5 you can configure an additional WAN interface (Network->Interfaces->Show PortShield Interfaces). Then pick one and configure in WAN zone.Then you can have three different ip ranges. Once you do this you can route that traffice independently of the others.

Great, thanks! What about the other question?  Does this sonicwall have any extra secuirty for OWA?  I'm sure nothing can protect it like ISA, but is there any extra layer built into the sonicwall?

We don't have a front end server, only one server that handles everything.  The second link looks like it just shows how to forward port 80 and 443..

As far as I know, their is no extra security provided for OWA. Since OWA is browser based, it comes through on either port 80 or 443 as configured. You would also be configuring the Exchange server as a web server on the Sonicwall (in addition to the basic email configuration), which has a wizard for this.
