Is there a way on the SonicWALL NSA 2400 to configure X2, X3, X4 etc... as a switch? I know you can bridge 2 ports together but would like to do all LAN ports

Thanks

You can in the NSA 240, networking -> port shield http://nsa240.demo.sonicwall.com/main.html

I don't see that option in the 2400 http://2400.demo.sonicwall.com/main.html

correct, there isn't an option for port shield on the 2400 and greater.  however, i believe layer 2 bridge mode is what you are looking for.  here is a KB:

how are you wanting to deploy these ports?

ah...well then.  have you tried transparent mode?  there, you can specify a group of IP addresses on the LAN subnet that will be on that interface.
