I just installed a Dell SonicWall TZ 205. I want to see the activity currently taking place on the internet. On my NSA 3600, I can go to the AppFlow Monitor and see everything. This smaller device doesn't seem to have that option.  Where should I look for this data?
Thanks!

I'm not sure what this means. Do I have to buy something in order to get the data?

Hi Kris5454,

What do you mean by "I want to see the activity currently taking place on the internet." are you talking about monitoring WAN > LAN activity?

In the TZ series you will only have Network Traffic Visualization & Netflow/IPFIX Reporting but that is only offered in the TZ215. If you are looking for AppFlow specifically, you would need at least an NSA series appliance (even an NSA 220).

For Connections Monitoring you view this by going to System > Diagnostics > Diagnostic Tool: select Connections Monitor.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Thank you Diverseit!  I wish the person who sold me this machine had mentioned its limitations. They also weren't aware that I could access this data. Thanks for the perfectly detailed answer. I was able to access this information and export it.
