We have a Sonicwall 2400 and unfortunately it is managed by another company and I don't have access. But what I do want to know from those of you who are familiar with these firewalls... are there any known issues with the filter? I will have a user who is working great one day contact me the next day saying they can't get to half the websites they try. When I login as administrator (my login is basically unrestricted on the net) on the user's PC I can't access the sites either. Yet everyone else in the same filter group is on the net and working and my PC is accessing the Internet just fine.
Also, our workstations are XP Pro. Port 445 has to be open on the firewalls to allow access to the Internet. I've never seen this anywhere else. But sometimes it's not enough to just have port 445 open and I have to install file & printer sharing to allow the Internet to work.
Just curious if anyone else is having these issues with the Sonicwall.
