SFTP Issues Behind Sonicwall TZ205W to Yahoo Hosted Web Site

I'm having issues with connecting to a Yahoo hosted web site using SFTP through Adobe Contribute while behind a Sonicwall TZ205W firewall.  Before we put in the TZ205W we were able to access the web site, but have been unable to since its installation.  I have created an Any/Any policy for FTP as well as disabled the bounce attach protection.  Any ideas what I'm missing?

what port does it work over?  SFTP is generally an FTP extension of the SSH daemon on a server so it'd use port 22.  Allowing FTP (default port of 21) really won't do anything as that is the unencrypted daemon.

I've also added a service for SSH to cover ports 20-22.

Still no dice.

how is your software configured though?  you must have specified a port for sftp.  also, if you're trying to communicate from your local network to the internet, do you need to firewall traffic or can you just allow anything from within your network to communicate out.  just curious as most networks I've seen allow all from inside to outside.

regardless, you need to look at what your software is configured to use.  also, are you using sftp or ftps?  there's a big difference so just want to verify that.

Hi anotherhick,

Here are some known ports it may be trying to go out of:
SFTP TCP (2222 - SSH): TCP 2222
FTPS Control TCP (990 - TLS/SSL): TCP 990
FTPS Data TCP (989 - TLS/SSL): TCP 989

I have seen Adobe typically use TCP 2222.

Verify what is blocking it by looking in logs. Make sure the logs are configured properly. Log level should be Debug and then select all categories under the log column and click Accept to save the changes.

Upgrade to the latest SonicOS firmware release.

Let me know how it goes!
