Route to Internet on SonicWall Firewall

Due to a mixup with an order with our provider I am having to use a high speed Internet connection instead of the traditional DS3 that we ordered for a short term.  The site where this is occurring is our egress to the Internet for our entire agency whose 24 sites are all on the same MPLS network.  The traffic from the MPLS network comes through the MPLS and goes to our network  through a SonicWall Firewall with an address of 192.168.50.1.  The router which will have the Internet connection is 192.168.50.223.  How do I configure the SonicWall to send that traffic bound to the Internet across the network to the 223 router and out to the Internet?  I may have tried this once before but instead our provider made a change to the routing tables and handled it.  I would rather have the responsibility of this within my reach than spend an eternity on hold trying to get them to make the change.

a simple static route of 0.0.0.0 pointing traffic to 192.168.50.223 will send all traffic to the MPLS connection.

In the sonicwall this can be done through the GUI.

When I use this method, Internet traffic tends to be HTTP and HTTPS. So, I create a route on my default gateway to send this traffic to the preferred GW. On the sonicwall, you'd want to create a service group (if not already created) containing the services that you want to use the alternate route. Then, go to Network > Routing. Set it up as such:

Source: Any
Destination: Any
Service: Use the service group you created here.
Gateway: This would be the address object for the .223 IP.
Interface: Use X0 since the .223 is on the LAN zone.

What models of sonicwalls are you working with here?

It is a SonicWall NSA 4500.  Our office move is tomorrow.  I will try these and let you know.  Thanks in advance for the assistance.

super...wanted to make sure you had a sonicwall that could handle it. of course, anyone getting a ds3 connection is going to have the proper sonicwall.
