set multiple WAN static ip from different subnets on same router firewall
Posted on 2011-10-12
We have an ISP that has provided us with 2 static IPs but on different subnets and 2 different gateways
Unfortunately, they're unable to provide us with IP's on the same subnet because we need to subscribe for more static ip addresses.
Basically we have 2 static IPs on the subnet 255.255.255.252 which means there's only 2 usable IPs - one being our assigned IP and the other being the ISP's gateway IP
-1 static ip will be used for regular internet incoming/outgoing traffic
-the other static IP will be used for a publicly hosted website
The question is - can we setup these 2 static IP's with 2 different gateway's on the same router?
We have a Sonicwall NSA240
Also in regards to a physical connection, would a hub/switch be necessary to put in place in between the Sonicwall and the modem? or can we just have 1 network cable going from the modem to the sonicwall?
