Just add a /32 within that /27 onto the same wan interface then just program your src/dst nat rules accordingly just using that /32 as the src or dst address.

Set their master port to none in the interface settings.

Yes, that's what I'd do normally but it doesn't show up under interface settings /webfig/#Interfaces.Interface.3, no master port shown (no gadget). I have no idea of how to do this from the CLI.

You can just leave the word "export" out of the command. You will end up with more data to validate but the format will be the same.

Ok, that seems to work. So edit the file to taste and then restore. How do I load that file on the new rb750 after uploading?
