Redirecting Ports on SonicWALL with 2 WANs


We have a SonicWALL with 2 WANs with separate static IPs assigned. One is for  Exchange/OWA, the other is for a secure, reservations server. We need to use port 443 for secure OWA connections on one WAN, port 443 for secure access to the reservations server on the other WAN, as well as port 443 on each WAN for Remote Management of the firewall.

How do we create whatever address objects, services, firewall rules, etc. to accomplish all of this? Thanks in advance.

Hi PRNComputers,

Basically, its done through a custom NAT policy & Access Rule, which involves settings up a Service & Address Object. Here is the correct way to allow OWA traffic when your Exchange box is behind a SonicWALL:

In the NAT policy, instead using Primary WAN IP, you'd use the X2 or X3 (or whichever WAN connection the Exchange Server is behind). Then follow the same instructions for the other servers.

The Public Server Wizard can setup all of this up for you as well:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Yeah, I had gone through all of that before with the original configuration of the 2 WANs.

I checked, rechecked, tested, and still couldn't get to OWA.

Just noticed the Address Object I had set up for the Exchange Server was set to the IP of the firewall and not the server! Too funny. All good now. Thanks.

Awesome! Yeah, sometimes it's the smallest of things...

Glad I could help & thanks for the points.
