Huge Amount of Trouble Configuring Nat in Sonicwall Standard OS 3.02

Posted on 2009-12-16

I have been provided 10 IP addresses by our ISP I would like to configure each IP address in our firewall so that I can enter the IP address and be connected to RDP for each machine.  

I have successfully setup the NAT, but I am having trouble with the Firewall access rules I believe.  It seems to get confused.  Can anyone tell me how I would go about doing this?

    The Sonic OS needs the rules configured with the internal address ie Interface WAN - Any to internal IP RDP Allow whereas with Cisco you use the external address.  Could this be your problem?

    It is SonicWALL Standard OS I take it.  You need to go into the "One-to-One NAT" option and enable it.  Enter your public IP and Private IP's in there - i.e. PUBLIC IP -> PRIVATE IP and then the firewall can work out the rules etc.

    it's been a while since i worked with OS Standard but i do remember a 'Wizards' button that you can use that will help you set everything up

    Thank you all for your assistance.  In the end I actually programmed it correct, however TW Telecom hadn't set up the IP addresses I was forced to call them.   Thanks for your help and Merry Christmas!!
