Configure static WAN IP w/ mask

We have a Verizon M519 in passthrough mode and an assigned static IP (/32) address. They told me to configure the static IP on our Sonicwall using a mask and leave the gateway blank. My Sonicwall won't accept the mask. What am I missing? Thanks.

    I think you're missing a lack of support for the configuration you're attempting :)

    I can't see how a /32 mask would work on anything other than a PPP link? Biggest mask SonicOS supports is /31.

    You're right. Turns out I used the /31 mask and entered a Gateway one less than the static IP and it worked. Guess I was given wrong advice by the Verizon tech! Thanks for the reply.

    If I was right, then it's by accident! I had no idea that would actually be the fix when I suggested it.
