Building ISP's Network?

My ISP gave me 2 networks.

My 64 IP one (main-net) and then a 2 IP one (link-net)that connects back to the ISP Box.

I know I could make this with a simple router/ Layer3 switch.

I have just started testing with our PS-2050.

Is there a simple way to do this in box?

I am thinking it would just be 1 VR between the link-net and the main-net.

Then another VR to be the default VR that we do firewall rules in, which would go between the main-net and our Internal network.

I could also assign an interface to main-net for anything that I do not want to NAT.

Is this correct thinking?

Any config examples appreciated.

I would setup a L3-interface on the PA using the link-net ip/range towards the ISP.

Then decide on how you want to use the /26 (64 ips) you got from your ISP.

For example divide this into 16 x /30's (or 8 x /30's + 4 x /29's) so you use one zone per type of server as various DMZ interfaces.
