On Sonicwall PRO 2040 Standard - how do I allow access to specific ports on all machines?

The client has hired a monitoring service that uses ports 5005 and 5006. The SonicWall Pro 2040 only has SonicOS Standard. The monitoring company wants access to any machine on the LAN.
How do I program the SonicWall?
I set up a firewall access rule, but I am unsure of how to allow access to any and all machines on the LAN using this rule.


Thanks.

Does the monitoring company require a client installed on each device? The only real way this could work is if the client were reaching out to them and allowing them to connect back. In order to connect WAN > LAN, you have to open a port on the firewall and NAT WAN > internal private IP. Unless you have a public IP address for each internal device, there's no other way this can be done unless the client were reaching out to them.

You might get a little more specific information about how they'd like to see your sonicwall configured. They should have more specific information. It's very vague what they want. Simply saying they use ports 5005 and 5006 doesn't mean anything. I know that SMTP uses port 25, but I have to open up my firewall to allow access into my email server. However, in this instance, we're talking about multiple devices internal not just a single server.

Although the Standard OS limits what you can do, you should be able to give them access to one device if they want to access other internal devices through that single device.

We realized that the monitoring company wanted a specific endpoint machine to connect to.
So once we set up the static IP for that machine, we did the NAT and Access.
