Configure Sonicwall for CIDR block with a Host IP
Posted on 2014-11-20
I have a Sonicwall NSA 220.
We upgraded our Internet connection with our ISP.
I'll use example IP addresses.
I was given a block of 8 public IP addresses (126.96.36.199/29).
I have been given a different host IP (188.8.131.52).
I've been told to configure the WAN port with the host IP (184.108.40.206), which I've done.
I've also been told to configure a route for the public IP addresses. I've attempted to do so, but I have apparently not done so correctly.
I've tried creating an address object called Public IPs with a range of 220.127.116.11 through .215.
I've also tried making the address object with a network of 18.104.22.168 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.248.
I then added a route with the following:
Source LAN Subnets (I also tried Any)
Dest Public IPs (address object described above)
Interface X1 (where the ISP is connected and the Host IP is configured for the WAN port)
Any help on what I'm doing wrong is greatly appreciated.
Also, out of curiosity, is there a term to describe this type of setup?
