Use a WAN IP for a router behind a Sonicwall

Hi Everyone,

I've had a request come through from a third party to have one of the available IP addresses in a /29 pool from an ISP allocated to their router.

The current configuration is that the ISP's router is connected, feeds into X8 on an NSA 2600 which is configured with the /29 addresses. I've got X9 connected to the WAN2 port on their Draytek router and they have made the relevant configuration to have their Draytek accessible as x.x.x.4 where the WAN IP address of the Sonicwall is x.x.x.3.

I'm currently struggling to work out what I would need to configure on the sonicwall to get the Draytek on x.x.x.4 visible on the WAN IP that's allocated.

Any help with the configuration would be appreciated.

    Thanks for that @shiprasahu93

    I managed to get it configured using a normal bridge but it would appear that the third party's configuration on their hardware needed to change in order for their hardware to be able to access the gateway.

    Thank you once again for all your help!
