I have Sonicwall NSA 2400 and the users in my network need to open a web site that requires ports 66 and 67 to be open.
I tried to create access rules and NAT policies but it didn’t work.
Can you tell me how to allow all users in my network to access external IP using any port

Thanks

Is the use of these two ports from the same web site the users access from the LAN? For example, some web sites require you to login and then forward you to a different address to perhaps deliver a service. If so the assumption would be that you want to open ports 66 and 67 for WAN to LAN traffic. It this is true, what type of traffic do you want to permit (TCP, UDP ?) and from where (any ip address or a specific one or two). It would not be a good idea to open these ports to all traffic from anywhere, which would then make then a arget if you are port scanned.

Can you post screen shots of tour NAT and access rules so we can check them. One common mistake is in the access rules. For inbound wan > lan spice should be "any" and destination the "public interface may is using".
