This article explains how to open ports on the SonicWall for the following options:
- Web Services
- FTP Services
- Mail Services
- Terminal Services
- Other Services
Consider the following example where the server is behind the firewall. This is the server we would like to allow access to.
- The Firewall's WAN IP is 126.96.36.199
- The server's private IP is 192.168.1.100
- We would like to NAT the server IP to the firewall's WAN IP (188.8.131.52)
- To allow access to the server, select the QUICK CONFIGURATION option from the top of the page on the web GUI. This opens up the configuration dialog.
- Select Public Server Guide in the following dialog.
- The following options are available in the next dialog
- Web Services: Allows HTTP (TCP port 80) and HTTPS (TCP port 443).
- FTP Services: Allows TCP port 21.
- Mail Services: Allows SMTP (TCP port 25), POP3 (TCP port 110) and IMAP (TCP port 143).
- Terminal Services: Allows RDP (TCP port 3389) and Citrix ICA (TCP port 1494).
- Other Services: You can select other services from the drop-down list.
- The next dialog requires the public IP of the server. Predominantly, the private IP is NAT'ed to the SonicWall's WAN IP, but you can also enter a different public IP address if you would like to translate the server to a different IP. For our example, the IP address is 184.108.40.206.
- The following dialog lists the configuration that will be added once the wizard is complete.
- Select Apply to complete the process.You can verify if the rules and NAT policies have been created by checking under Manage | Policies | Rules | Access Rules | NAT Policy (as shown below).
