Sonicwall Firewall login

I have a SOHO Sonic Firewall that I am unable to pull up the login screen.

Here's what happened.

I was doing some troubleshooting and I turned off HTTPS Management. After the firewall updated the settings I obviously couldn't login to it via a web interface over my network anymore (FRUSTRATING). Anyway, I went to the firewall and connected up  a cross-over cable I made to access it via it's default address.

No luck!!!

Yes. I did set my local IP, Subnet and Gateway to match the firewall.

Any ideas?

I really don't want to reset my firewall back to default but, am running out of ideas

Yes, that's the one....If you have that, you can use the link that budchawla sent you to get into it.
Good luck!
Does this happen to be the model that has a serial port for a console connection? That would be the only other way to access it besides resetting it.
If you need instructions on resetting the sonicwall, let me know and I can provide help.

I believe I have the cable...what do I need to do to connect to the firewall with that cable.

It's a blue cable w/ serial on one side and rj-45 on the other correct?

And I believe there is a section on CLI settings & commands...
