Multiple subnets on a single interface - Sonicwall TZ215

Posted on 2014-01-30
Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I recently implemented a Dell Sonicwall TZ215 unit. I have WAN failover setup, with my primary connection Comcast (all HTTP traffic) and a Windstream T1 (email, vpn, etc). I have static addresses setup for both, and the Comcast connection on X1 and the Windstream on X2.

I have purchased another block of 5 static IP addresses through Windstream, and have a webserver behind the firewall I need to give access to the outside world. I have tried to setup a virtual interface off of the X2 interface, but it does not seem to be routing. I can access the server internally, so I know the loopback is working, however, I cant access the server from the outside internet. I used the wizard, so it should have setup the correct objects and NATing.

The first set of static IPs are (209.133.X.X) and the second block I purchased it (66.32.X.X)

Does anyone have any input on what I might be doing wrong?

You can't have multiple subnets on one interface without vlan tagging. If they don't do that, then you just add a switch and go to two different ports on the sonicwall.

Thank you. That is kind of what I thought the answer would be, but wanted to get some feedback from the professionals! Thanks again!
