How to 'forward' LAN host MAC address to WAN

Hello community,

We have several hosts on the LAN side.

Each LAN host is NATted to a WAN IP address (each LAN host has it own WAN IP).

E.g. LAN: -NAT- WAN:


How can we use the LAN host MAC address on the WAN side?

The network admin on the WAN side needs a MAC address for each WAN IP he/she issues.

Can we do this with Static ARP entries?

    A static ARP entry should accomplish what you are asking for BUT be aware that using the LAN host MAC address as an ARP entry on the WAN interface may cause the Sonicwall to identify traffic as Spoofed.
