12/20/2019 45 8261
To enhance the security of administrative sessions, SonicWall recommends administrators to limit SonicOS management access to trusted management sources by modifying the existing SonicOS Web management rules (HTTPS/HTTP Management) to allow management access only from trusted IP addresses. Administrators with firewalls under GMS management should push these rule updates to the firewalls through the GMS interface.
Login to the SonicWall management GUI.
Navigate to the Firewall | Service Objects page. (Alternatively found under Network | Service page in certain SonicOS firmware)
Create address objects of trusted IP addresses. The following screen captures are only examples.
Create an address group containing the newly created address objects. In the example below it is named as Trusted Management Sources.
Navigate to the Firewall | Access Rules page.
Select radio button under All Rules to display all access rules.
Edit each rule with Service as HTTP Management or HTTPS Management and change the source to the newly created address group Trusted Management Sources.
