I have got a sharepoint server inside of a sonicwall.  But I cannot connect to the site.
DEtails are as follows
Sonicwall 192.168.1.1
Sharepoint 192.168.1.100/192.168.0.2
Sharepoint is using default port 80
I have set up two interfaces for the sharepoint server one for public and one for private
I am not so good with sonicwall NAT setup
But I have the firewall on the sharepoint server turned off so I know its just the sonicwall now
I created a NAt filter which should allow any traffic from the WAN interface to the LAN interface
I rebooted the sonicwall and its still not working
I went into the firewall settings also and setup the ports WAN to open (I know this is not a security practice, but I was just testing to see if it would work) but it didnt
I am using NTLM auth on teh sharepoint server as well.
So I am not sure what I am doing wrong

You want to run the public server wizard.  What model of sonicwall do you have and is it standard or enhanced OS.  You can find this out by going to System > Status.  The public server wizard will create all the firewall access rules, NAT rules and address objects you need to connect.To clarify, you are talking about connecting to your server externally right?

I have tried to run the Wizard but I still cannot access the site.  I am running an enhanced version OS.
I did try the public server wizard and even used "any" .  Yes I am trying to connect externally but havent had much luck as of yet.  I was able to connect earlier but since we moved the server I am having to deal with this new sonicwall issue.  Is there anyway to just open up everything to see if it works as a test?  I can worry about security later.

what do you mean by, move the server?  Did the IP address change?

Yes, the ip address changed.  We moved the server from our location to another site.

ok...you'll have to provide more information.  you moved the server to a new site.  did the sonicwall go with it and the whole subnet changed?  did you get a new sharepoint server?  i don't understand the whole story so i can't adequately answer your question.

if you ran the public server wizard, then your sonicwall is configured properly.  if it's the same sonicwall with a new IP, then it's possible the old firewall/nat rules are still on the sonicwall and need to be deleted.

Right.  I moved the server to the new site.  The new site has a sonicwall housing another network.  The sharepoint server was configured at our office and relocated there.  I did run the public server wizard but didnt have much luck as I still cant access the server via url.  HTH

ah...i understand.  you can get to the sharepoint server without issues on the local network?

What ports are you wanting to open up to the sharepoint server?  I assume 443.

On the local network no problem.  Just when I'm outside.  I have ports 443 and 80 open.  I was also told port 444 as well.

when i have to open multiple ports for a single server, there's two ways to approach it.  before you run the public server wizard, create a service group and add all of the services to it that are needed by this server.  you can do this by going to Firewall > Services.  then, run the public server wizard and select your new service group from the list...you're done!

Or, you could run the wizard, select one of the services and complete the wizard.  go back and create the service group and manually modify all the NAT/Firewall rules that are created by the public server wizard such that the service is modified to the new service group.

make sense?

right now, if'n i were you, i would delete ALL the NAT/Firewall rules you or the public server created and all the address objects created by you or the public server wizard and start from scratch.  Then, use the first option to create the service group and use it with the public server wizard.

Yeah, thats what I am wondering about doing too.  Which ports are needed by sharepoint?  Am I missing some ports?  I have 80,443,444 open.

By saying rules, we are talking about the access rules under firewall right?

Yes...Firewall > Access Rules.  And, the NAT rules under Network > NAT Policies
