Firebox - adding a second external IP range

Hi,

We currently have a 46.x.x.x/28 range assigned to us from our ISP.  I have enquired about getting this range extended, but they can only offer a separate /29 range as the blocks to either side of us are taken by other customers.

If we accept this second block, how would I add this to our Watchguard firewall?  Would it be as simple as adding the range to the Secondary tab in the External interface's configuration pages?

Thanks
Dan

Hi Dan,

Yes, it is that simple.  You just need the router if it is yours to know to route that address range to the primary on the firewall.   Then the Firewall will handle it exactly as you would expect and you can NAT the same way you are used to.

If they manage the router, it should be a snap.
