SonicWall firewall Rule to Block One Suspect PC Not working
Posted on 2014-07-25
We have a SonicwAll TZ210 in our office with approx 30 users.
Recently we have had a lot of spontaneous reboots of the SonicWall and after weeks of troubleshooting including
replacing the SonicWall, multiple remote sessions with SonicWall support and fine combing all settings.
I now suspect MY PC is causing the issue. I have a Static IP so I want to test blocking my IP at the SonicWall to ALL WAN connections.
I want to do this at the SonicWall level with a RULE so I can remotely change it if needed via the WAN side of the SonicWall ( Yes I know its a risk to open SonicWall for WAN management , buts its for 2 hour, we have a lastpass complex password, non admin name, single remote IP mange rule, and are stealthed)
- Here is the Address Object = Name ( Peter PC) Type (Host) Address IP ( my ip) Zone ( LAN)
And Here is the Rule Source ( Peter Pc) Destination ( ALL WAN IP) Service ( ANY) Action ( DENY)
I see that the above has NO effect on my PC as I can still connect via Logmein and launch any web site.
Any comments or suggestions as to where I am going wrong would be appreciated.
( and one more thing - is there a place in SonicWall to see what LAN devices or PCs are doing the MOST connections over time ?
