I have a sonic firewall that I want to be able to connect to via a vpn over the internet. The isp has provided us with an E1 line into the premises. With a 1721 router with an E1 wic I need to convert the E1 to ethernet while leaving the public address on the sonic wall for vpn purposes.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The conversion you mention is called routing.

The ISP has likely given you a LAN IP address and a netmask. You configure one address on the router and one on the firewall, set default route to serial, and that's it.
