Watchguard Firebox xtm23 config

I am swapping out my old watchguard firewall for this one and I can not seem to get my web and exchange server connected to the outside world.  I have a copy of my setup for the old one but they are so different.  Can someone please point me to a resource for this?  I registered it, activated it, correctly installed it, and I can get out.  It looks to me like I set my firewall policies correctly but I am clearly doing something wrong.

Thanks!

Did you do it through web? Best way is to use Watchguard System manager, it comes with a wizard and tells you how to boot into safe mode and connect to it. During the wizard it will even ask you the basic rules needed like web or mail. Once finished you can save the policy file or the entire image. With WSM you can get a lot more than just a web firewall.
Through the WG website download WSM, install it and launch the wizard

I did that but still not connected to web server or exchange server.  Do I have to set up my internal network in WSM?

Oh, and it never asked me about any basic rules like web or mail.  I set those up in the policies area.

Ok I am online now.  Thanks.  I really want to use this to the fullest extent.  For instance, can I use it to stop sql injection attacks on my web sites?  Are you aware of any good resource that tells me how to fully implement this utility, or should I just go through live security?
