Sonicwall Port Forwarding Issue
Posted on 2013-10-29
We have a network with a Sonicwall TZ 215 firewall on it.
We have Two Networks
Internal Workstations Range 192.168.0.XX
Internal Camera Network 192.168.43.XXX
The Internal workstations are on the firewall (X0) Lan Port
The Internet Connection is on the firewall (X1) WAN Port
The Camera Network is on the Firewall (x2) Lan Port
We have 50 cameras on the 43 network, each listening on its own port (8100 - 8150) TCP/UDP
The vendor asked for port forwarding rules to be installed on the firewall to port a specific port to a specific camera (ex. Port 8100 would forward to IP 192.168.43.100, Port 8101 would forward to IP 192.168.43.101 etc.
We created service groups (TCP/UDP) for ports 8100-8150
We created Address objects for each camera on the network
We created the NAT Policy for each camera
When we tested to see if each port is open, only ports 8100-8103 are open all the rest are showing closed. We checked and rechecked each address and service and they all are correct. We checked to see if the closed ports are being used by any other service and they are not.
Any suggestions would be helpful
