Sonicwall static IP setup with AT&T "Network on Demand" fiber

Am having difficulty getting any support from AT&T for their fiber product.  Does anyone have any experience with this?

I have it connected and running fine for outbound (using DHCP), but can't find any info for how to set up static IP's in our Sonicwall so that they are usable for inbound access.

Do you have static IP's with AT&T ? As you say you are currently on DHCP.




View example configurations and the SonicWALL webui and features on http://livedemo.sonicwall.com or http://ngfw-demo.com

Multiply the effectiveness of your APT Sandbox, stop unknown and zero-day attacks at the gateway. See a demo on http://apt-demo.com or http://atp.demo.com

I've set up many Sonicwall's with normal static IP configurations.  The AT&T Network on Demand setup is not the same.  They don't give you your static IP range, a subnet mask and a default gateway, as I'm used to.  

Looking for someone who is familiar with that scenario.

OK.  Got more info from AT&T.  My Sonicwall has an assigned IP that is different from our actual public static IP's.  I am supposed to set up a "NAT statement" or "NAT pool" that tells the Sonicwall where to send traffic sent to our actual public IP.  I've never had to do that.  Any ideas on where to start.  I've tried messing around with Routes and NAT policies, but no luck so far.

Make sure the ISP routes this secondary IP block to your WAN IP.
Then just feel free to use those IP addresses in NAT policies.

Dont' create static arp entries or routes or what soever for this secondary IP block.
Just create NAT policies.

Yep, so it appears that I've got to set up new policies/rules to use the real IP's, rather than being able to tell them to use WAN1 or WAN2 (for example).  Was able to do that for testing and it worked fine.
