I am setting up wireless and I want to setup three types of Sonicpoints profiles or VAP's.  I have Public, internal and smartphone. I have all setup but cant get the smartphone that have activesync to connect to the internal exchange server.  I have created DNS rules with Nat Policies and also SSL.  I run the connectivity anylyzer and it works fine.  I can https:// to the owa address no problem just cant get the phones to connect.

Have you enabled SMTP, ActiveSync, SSL, and port 80 as allowable services to pass from the SonicPoint subnet to your Exhange server's subnet in the Firewall Access rules?

I just checked my Sonicwall firewall rules for my Sonicpoint WLAN subnet to my internal LAN subnet and I only have 80, 443, and 110 pointing to the external IP of my Exchange server.  I had the same problem with my user's phones not syncing and this fixed it.

Source:  WLAN Subnet, Destination:  External Exchange IP, Services:  80, 443, 110

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Activesync works over 443, which is the same as SSL - forgot to mention that.

The answer was I had to disable wireless aggregation for the iphones.  I got everything working for the regular phones and devices.

Hi,

Can you give more infomation on your setup.

I have VAP

X2:V20 WLAN access to internal network X0 lan subnet and internet working ok for LAPTOP
X2:V30 WLAN-Public for visitors and iPhone. Internet working but iphones can't get email on exchange or OWA.

WLAN-Public to LAN is DENY and can't access our internal DNS server. This way it need to ask internet provider DNS for IP and get tell is out external WAN IP address like 66.66.66.66. I cant get access to OWA or email working.

What I need to add to make iphones from WLAN-Public yo our internal exchange server?

Thank you,

iphones have been tested on X2:V20 and email are working.

Hi, I talk with Sonicwall support and resolve the situation.

Hardware on WLAN-Puclic that have only internet access will point external DNS to get names resolved and get for internal server the WAN IP address of theses server... that is point back to the WAN interface.

To make this working you need to add rule to WLAN-Public to LAN with the services you wan like HTTPS pointing the WAN IP (public IP) you have the service on.

 WLAN-Public to LAN with Public IP
