TOPIC: Getting a block of 5 IPs

Getting a block of 5 IPs 10 years 10 months ago #31319

I recently took a job as a IT all around kinda guy. So I do system administration, network administration, programming, and troubleshooting. The company I work for wants to get a block of static IPs (5) so they can run webserver on one IP, camera system on another, etc. I can setup 1 static IP easy, but Ive never had to setup more then one. My speciality is programming, not network administration. :) We have a SonicWall Firewall/Router. We will be purchasing our IPs from ATT. So I am looking for some direction, maybe some good online resources. Thanks

Welcome to
The ISP assign and provide your IP addresses, you just use them. How you use them depends on how your network is arranged currently. I'm assuming you use a private IP address range inside your firewall/router. If so, you will need to set up Network Address Translation (NAT) to map each external IP address assigned by the ISP to a fixed internal address you have set aside for each function. This is called static NAT. So, for example, if your ISP gives you the block off addresses through you might decide is going to be your web server so you might map that to and set up your internal web server on that address.
The alternative to this is to add an interface onto your firewall/router to create a DMZ and place all your external-facing devices into there

Wow, I guess I had too many beers one night and was making this more complicated than it is. Thanks!
