Sonicwall port forwarding 1433 - Allow access from a single WAN ip for SQL server
Posted on 2013-02-04
I've got a Sonicwall TZ 210, running enhanced firmware at my Nevada office.
I have a data center in California that has an IIS server that needs to connect to a SQL server in my Nevada office via port 1433. I have forwarded port 1433 using the public server wizard in my Sonicwall at my Nevada office.
I don't want to allow everybody to be able to see port 1433 as open, as I'll get a ton of people trying to hack my server. I'd like to restrict access to that port so only my public ip address at my CA office can access the SQL server at my NV office over port 1433.
There's gotta be some way to restrict the access by changing the "ANY" on the firewall rule... I'm just not sure which part of the rule to change.
