sonicwall - passthrough?

hello, i am new to Sonicwall, we have 2 separate networks, office admin and guests. The office admin has its own adsl and goes out to X1 WAN1.

For the guests network with different subnet, I would like to use content filtering etc and would like to know how i can pass a second network (guests) on the sonicwall, on port X3 and go out to the internet on port X4 which is a different adsl from the office admin ADSL (WAN2). Is it the portshield feature or something else?

Thanks, Clifford

What you're looking to do is very doable. To summarize what needs to be done...
1) ]You need to configure X4 as a WAN interface: https://support.software.dell.com/kb/sw7781
2) You need to create a new Zone and PortShield interface that uses X3: https://support.software.dell.com/kb/sw11478
3) You need to check the NAT policies, and modify so that it incoming traffic to X4 will go to X3, and outbound traffic from X3 will go through X4: https://support.software.dell.com/kb/sw7979
4) By default, the default content filtering policy will be in place. However, you can create a separate content policy filter if you wish: http://www.uptimemadeeasy.com/networking/configure-sonicwall-content-filtering/
