It sounds like you simply need to enable port forwarding on whatever router you have connecting you to the internet.

For example if you wanted to SSH into the machine from outside, you would go to the port forwarding page on your router config and forward port 22 to 192.168.1.2

it will be better to configure NAT
on linux box it will be DNAT&SNAT
on cisco router ip nat outside and ip nat inside

I don't know anything about sonic firewalls
For accessing from outside to inside you should configure NAT on this firewall
or configure external IP address on second ethernet interface on this machine and connect it to external network

Probably you need to setup an alias on the outside interface of you sonicwall,
+ Destination NAT to the internal system +
Add filter rules to allow specific traffic to the system.
