SBS 2003 wth 2 NICs and a SonicWall...

Hi All,
I need to purchase a SonicWall TZ170 for a client that currently has SBS 2003 installed with a 2-nic setup.  As you would presume, the SBS box is the 'router' for the network.  There is currently a Netgear box between this outside SBS NIC and the internet.  It's this Netgear that will be replaced.

My question is, based on SonicWall's "node" licensing, do you think that if I only have the one SBS outside NIC on the inside of the SonicWall, will my node count be just one or will SonicWall 'see' the client machines inside the SBS network also?

Thanks,
Terry

My experience has been no it will not see the other devices, as SBS's firewall works as a  NAT device and such the sonicwall will only see that one device.
But, you are connecting more than that one device to the internet, and you should check their licensing to see if you need to have all computers connected to the protected networks licensed to be used.
Thank you,
David Houston

I just received details from SonicWall tech support that, like you said, the entries in the arp table are what SonicWall will be 'counting' so in this case, it will see only one other local IP.

Thanks for your  help!
