Checking SMTP logs from email security could show this Error reading Signon Banner: Connection reset by peer.
Performing packet capture on firewall shows as packets are being dropped due to network and enforced firewall rules.
This usually happens when they enable SSO authentication on firewall, so make sure to exclude the SonicWall email security IP address from SSO authentication.
This is vital for devices who do not require user authentication via SSO such as; Macintosh Apple Computers, iPads, Printers and Smart phones or Servers that do not run with a logged in user.
Below is a screenshot of the Enforcement tab on the SSO configuration properties dialog box. Here you will notice "SSO Bypass" option this is used to bypass SSO agent and allow services, hosts, Networks or Range of IPs to send their traffic through the SonicWall without having to go through user authentication via SSO.
User names used by Windows services: Programs such as a video card software, for example NVIDIA's Update, can cause issues and need to be bypassed from SSO agent in the option shown to the right.
Below are the steps for SSO enforcement:
Step 1Login to your SonicWall security appliance. Step 2 Navigate to Users > Settings. Step 3 In the Single-sign-on method drop-down menu, select SonicWall SSO Agent. Step 4Click Configure button.The SSO configuration page is displayed.
