sonicwall 3060 authentication

Hello,
I have a Sonicwall 3060.  It's setup so any PC in the company, if you open a browser, you are prompted to log on before you gain internet access.
This works really well.

My question is, is there a way to bypass this logon screen for one specific PC (static IP)?  I would like to setup a PC for users to use during their breaks.

Create a new rule thus:

LAN to WAN block - new rule
Allow
From Zone - LAN
To Zone - WAN
Service - Web group**
Source - Restrooom PC***
Dest - any
Users allowed - any
Shedule - always on ****

where

** web group - create, if you dont' have it already, a "service group" containing all the services you want users of this PC to have access to - at least http and https (80 and 443) for web browsing.

*** Restroom PC - create an address object with the IP address of this PC in it - clearly for this to work that needs to be a FIXED ip address so if necessary make it a DHCP reservation or hard-code its IP address so it is always the same.

**** - you can clearly use this rule to limit access to certain times!


NOTE you don't have to do any more than create this rule - as it is "more specific" than the general LAN-to-WAN rule it will take precedence.



Also note if you want to suspend this facility at any time you can just "disable" that rule, leaving it in place, and re-enable it later.

If you have dual-wan you could also arrange for this service to ONLY be avable via the main connection, i.e. if you're runing on your backup link, then "Private use" is not available.

ccomley,

Thanks for the tip.  I actually tired this prior to my post.  But it still did not seem to work.  after some research i realized, i just needed to adjust my content filtering options.
