Hi,

I have the standard sonic OS  on my SonicWall 3060 and need to write a rule that says to allow all traffic from an external ip range to an internal destination ip range.  I don't want to reference any services but just ip addresses.

Thanks

On the left hand side click on Network
Click on Address Objects
Scroll down to Address Objects and click on the "Add..." button
In the popup window give an appropriate name
Assign the Zone to the appropriate name
In the Type drop down select "Range"
Fill Out the Starting IP & Ending IP
Click Add
Repeat the above steps for the other range either internal or external based on what you did the first time.

Click on Firewall
Click on Access Rules
Select the Drop-down Boxes view style
Select WAN for the "From Zone:" and LAN for the "To Zone"
Click OK
Click on the Add button
Select "Any" Service
For Source select the External group you created above
for Destination select the Internal group you create above
Click on "Add"

Now test to ensure it works.

You may need to create a NAT policy to properly forward the ports in question to your internal computers.

Let me know if this worked for you.

Unfortunately, Address Objects is not available in the standard version of SonicOS.  I could update but looks like I'd have to start from scratch with the Enhanced version.

I see. What happens when you go to the next part of the Firewall Access Rule does it allow you to specify the access rule or is it useless without the Address Objects?

How much configuration would be involved with moving to the enhanced version. Although it is not supported you should be able to upload the Enhanced OS boot off of it and then import the configuration from your Standard OS. You may run into issues or you may be lucky and not having any. You can always revert back to the Standard OS if necessary. I'm not sure what your maintenance window looks like

Basically, I have to specify a service or use "any"  but tried and didn't work for my purpose.  Others maintain it would work if I had a rule based in IPs and not services.

Looking for more info on the upgrade to Enhanced but I think you're correct in that it may or not import the old settings.  Our maintenance time would probably be a weekend.

I think it would be worth your while about going from a Standard to Enhanced firmware and then trying to import the same configuration. I've completed once successfully in the past without any issues.

Let me know how it goes should you attempt this on the weekend or after hours one night
