Hi,

I have 2 questions on my Sonicwall TZ100 (Dell now):

1.what best practise changes would you do to default settings? Have some rules, policies but didn't change much to deafault settings

2.Can you set priority on specific protocols, f.e. I would like to have RDP absolute priority over SMB traffic. Cannot put it into KB or MB but copying files should not interfere with RDP.

Hi janhoedt,

To address your first question, it really depends on what you are wanting to do. The defaults are pretty much Best Practice already. However, there are many hardening techniques you can apply as a Best Practice as well but they are very lengthy.

A few of the major ones would be as follows:
Firewall Settings > Advanced:
Check both Enable Stealth Mode & Randomize IP ID.
Under IP and UDP Checksum Enforcement check both Enable IP header checksum enforcement &  Enable UDP checksum enforcement.

Purchase CGSS and configure each module.

To answer your second question, yes you can prioritize Access Rules and NAT Policies. Click on the Priority to set higher or lower.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
