Hey Guys,

I'm working on a new install and going a little crazy trying to figure out why i cant route traffic to new SBS 2011 server.  In the sonicwall, I have it setup to allow traffic on HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP and RDP to the new server but the only thing that forwards is RDP. I can telnet into the server from the local network but not externally.  I have tried turning the local firewall off on the SBS server and creating additional firewall rules but i cant seem to get this traffic to punch through. I though I might be dealing with some port blockage at the ISP but I can access the admin interface for the sonicwall over the WAN without any difficulty, and if I change the admin port to another port I can still access the admin interface. So I'm assuming at this point based on my troubleshooting steps that it's something with the sonicwall. I have deployed dozens on sonicwall's in and have never come across this issue.

I have also removed all the rules that the public server wizard created and re-ran the wizard to re-create the rules but i am still left with only RDP access.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, thank you kindly in advance.
