Migrate Pix 501 config to Sonicwall TZ 210

Is there a documented or efficient way to go about migrating the config from a Cisco Pix 501 over to a Sonicwall TZ 210 firewall?  The Sonicwall is replacing the Pix.

All clients currently have static ip's assigned internally which are NAT'ed to public ip's.

Any documentation or a link to documentation would be helpful.

Also, any special considerations I need to think about?

Thanks

there's no easy way. however, to setup the NAT'ed solution you had, you'd run the public server wizard, which i've linked to a KB below.

do you have any site to site vpns? what about allowing users to access the network via VPN? this would remove the need for the NAT'ed private IP addresses.

Thanks for the link.  That should be helpful.  

In regards to the site-to-site vpn, I believe the client does have one setup between the two locations in town.  VPN access for users is a good idea; however, it seems that the IT contact onsite wants to keep the config the same without any changes unfortunately.

to each their own. they'll change their tune when their network gets hacked. there's a reason WAN > LAN is Deny All by default for a reason. anyway, good luck and thanks for the points!
