    Does the Sonicwave have current licenses? If not the settings will freeze and cannot be changed. The existing settings will continue to work though.

    It is bad practice to have a public IP address,, in your internal network as it can cause unexpected conflicts. The firewall will see this a as WAN address. Also, it belongs to someone else, A French Telecom company called Orange S.A.

    I would also recommend an upgrade of your firewall's firmware. The current version is SonicOS 7.0.1-5065. Updating your firmware will help the Sonicwave's firmware stay current. They do not require a manual install.
