Sonicwall TZ190 host two seperate networks and gateways

I have a Sonicwall TZ190 with SonicOS Enhanced 4.2.1.0-20e installed.  I am hoping to set it up to host two seperate WAN gateways, two seperate networks and rules sets.  Is this possible? If so, how?

Thanks

completely possible but you will need to provide more information as to what you are trying to do.  are these going to be 2 separate network or is one going to be fail over?

It is going to be two seperate networks, not a fall over network. One is going to host the normal traffic of the users and the other will host a voice pbx system.

There are some really good sonicwall experts here on experts-exchange but this video should get you started.

So I understand the DMZ port, but from the video, they are using as it was designed, just as a access to the standard WAN port.

What I would need is to have two ports designated as WAN ports with seperate internal LAN ports

Is this all done using the access rules after the OPT port is assigned the second external/gateway IP?

Dear,

i am sure you know how to configure WAN and OPT ports, but please find below two famous WAN configurations options...

a)WAN Configuration --Leased Line Setup
Logon to SNA , Go to Network > Interfaces>Interface 'X1' Settings>
Zone: WAN
IP Assignment: Static
IP Address: PROVIDED BY YOUR ISP
Subnet Mask: PROVIDED BY YOUR ISP
Default Gateway: PROVIDED BY YOUR ISP OR ISP ROUTER IP ADDRESS
DNS Server 1: PROVIDED BY YOUR ISP
ok, save

b)WAN Configuration –ADSL Line
Configure WAN** ( Network > Interfaces>Interface 'X1' Settings>
Zone: WAN
IP Assignment: PPOE
Schedule: Always ON
User Name: PROVIDED BY ISP
User Password: PROVIDED BY ISP, ok save
--------------------------------------------------
once done you need to do Network traffic routing refer to my article
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Networking_Hardware/Firewalls/A_6509-Network-Traffic-Routing-in-Sonicwall.html


the only thing you need to do is use VLANs or port sheild interface....

The main problem with the TZ190, is that all the ports from 1-8 are locked with LAN as the parent interface.  

If I try to set up the OPT port as a gateway, I cant set another interface to use it as a gateway as it always wants to use the standard WAN.

Is it possible to use the access rules or routing to force the traffic of a specific interface to the second gateway?

Syed_M_UsmanCommented:
yes,,, once you configure OPT as WAN2 or Sceondary Default Gateway you can force Specific traffic to use OPT gateway... refer to my article mention above...

I am understanding it, however I am also using the sonicwall TZ190, with firmware SonicOS Enahnced 4.2.1.  I go to the address objects and I cant edit the value for the secondary gateway.

so I finally got the secondary gateway working. I had to turn on the load balancing and set the OPT interface to WAN and not the DMZ.

I do have another problem due to the PBX system, but that doesnt belong in this section..

Thanks guys.
