SonicWall TZ 105 multiple public IP addresses

I have a Dell SonicWall TZ 105 appliance configured and running in a small office.

The SonicWall is connected to a Comcast Business Gateway Router.

We have 5 static public IP addresses with Comcast.

The internal Address of the Comcast router is

I configured the SonicWall to use as it's WAN address.
The internal address of the SonicWall is

I am passing the following ports through from the Comcast Router to the SonicWall ( -

443 - VPN - Used by the SonicWall for VPN services.
21 - FTP - Forwarded by the SonicWall to an internal ftp server.
80 - HTTP - Forwarded by the SonicWall to an internal web server.

All of this is working fine, but now I wish to use a 2nd public IP address and pass it through.
On the Comcast router I added a 1 to 1 NAT that passes one of the available public IPs to

Now I assume I have to create a Virtual Interface on the SonicWall that connects to ?
And then I somehow route the proper ports to the internal server that is at ?

Hi here is a tech article from sonicwall describing the configuration you seek. It shows how to brush the wan into passthrough mode for all of your public ip addresses.

Agreed, don't do this double nat setup, move to pass through. That will give the sonicwall all your up addresses and you can do whatever you want with them.
