Sonicwall TZ210 locking down SSLVPN

We have set up a couple of users to connect to the TZ210 and download the NetExtender client. They can connect with the credentials we have given them and use the resources on the lan that we have allocated them.

We would like to lock this down by only allowing incoming connections to come from one or two specific ip addresses in order to increase security, but are unsure how to do this.

Does anyone know how this is achieved on the TZ210 please?

I think it would be possible to create a Firewall rule to allow only the external IP addresses you want and then do a deny any for the second rule. This would be applied to the WAN>SSL VPN zone.

Hi eymsIT,

There is no such WAN>SSLVPN Access Rule. It does not work like that. The SSLVPN has to terminate or has to have a destination of the WAN specifically the Public IP. The Access Rule for VPNSSL depends on the Zone you enable it on. Assuming you set the Server up on the WAN zone, the Access Rule used looks like this:
From Zone: WAN
To Zone: WAN
Service: SSLVPN
Source: Any
Destination: WAN Interface IP
Users Allowed: All
Schedule: Always on
Comment: Auto added for inbound SSL VPN Traffic
Enable Logging: Checkmark
Allow Fragmented Packets: Checkmark
Unfortunately, you cannot lock it down the way described because the only fields, which are editable are the Service (which you shouldn't change), the Users Allowed (which can be locked down), and Schedule (which you can lockdown time-wise).

Users are the best way to lockdown SSLVPN. Here is how you can do that: I'd recommend following the entire article, which will bring you to Access Rules and how you can lockdown SSLVPN by users.

Let me know how it goes.
