NSA 2650 WAN & LAN Queries
I am setting up a NSA 2650 firewall for a new office. We have CCTV cameras, separate offices that will need different LAN's and Wi-Fi access points. One of the offices will have an IP phone system hat will have its own fixed IP too.
We have BTNET dedicated fibre to the building that we have five fixed IP addresses. I would like to use one fixed IP for the CCTV, one IP for each office LAN and one IP for he IP phone system in one of the offices as they want it separate from the computers.
My question is, can I use the NSA 2650 to have different WAN's using he IP addresses from BT and then set ports on the 2650 to use each wan that will then go to a switch in each office?
The BT fibre comes in and connects to the Cisco unit that BT provided and manage. At the moment I have the fibre coming out of the Cisco units and into the 2650.
The cameras are all on a separate network from the offices, Wi-Fi and LAN and connect to an NVR that currently plugs into the 2650 for internet access for remote viewing.
I have used Sonicwall Firewalls before but not to set up anything as complicated (or may not be to experienced people) as this.
Any help or pointers is much appreciated.
Hello @Mattjn82 - You do not need more than one WAN interface on your NSa-2650 to do what you need. Your configured WAN is probably a static block with subnet mask of 255.255.255.248. The GW Router uses one IP and the firewall uses another one, leaving four other IPs which you can configure as WAN host objects. Those can be used in a variety of ways, including Port Forwarding to servers, etc. inside the network. That topic is one of the most well-covered in our knowledge base, and I can assure you a simple keyword search on google will lead you to fine articles like this:
