I am new to SonicWall routers. My first question is where can I get the admin/users guide for the tz200?

The second question is,,, the system is configured to only allow access via RDC using the router's IP + a port address such as 25.15.35.45:3389

How do I configure a the router to allow me to access specific PCs on the LAN using this configuration?

are you running the enhanced OS of the sonicwall?  the link below is for the enhanced of the version of firmware i "think" you are using.

regarding your second question, since RDC uses a specific port, you'll need to change the port RDC listens to on each device.  then, you'll run the Public Server Wizard for each computer and select the RDC port configured for each.  if it's just you providing remote access to a bunch of computers, then it would be easier to RDC to one computer, then RDC to each one from that computer.

Here is a link for changing the listening port:

Here is a link specifically for opening ports manually and via the wizard:
