trying to port forward thru a sonicwall tz205 to a dvr on a network

have a dvr at a remote site, want to be able to access it thru the existing sonicwall tz205, access to the dvr is using port 100 and i access the TZ remotely via the web over http (which is by default 80)

what i want to do is access the dvr either via an external static with the unit still able to be accessed locally on the local lan, or figure out how to set up forwarding to the dvr, leaving the external static alone without impacting my ability to access the TZ remotely

First change your management to https
Then use the public server wizard, just call it a web server and change the service group after to whatever ports you want.

ok, once I change my management to HTTPS and use the public server wizard, set up a web server and put it in a group, what impact will that have on the remote connection. I want to make sure I don't disable the remote connection by doing this...is there a step by step procedure to follow

Aaron TomoskyTechnology ConsultantCommented:
Enabling https is pretty easy and it only affects your ability to login to the sonicwall so be careful not to lock yourself out.

The public server wizard shouldn't break anything. After you run it, you will be left with a group for the services for the dvr. All you have to do is edit that group to have the services you want and these will be the ports it lets through.

question, in the wizard it is asking for a port range, but i only want to open one port, can the range be from port to same port or does it have to be a specific range if i am opening port say 100

for the wizard just call it a webserver

after the wizard is done
add a service for port 100, call it whatever you want
look at the service group that was created, remove the http/https services, add the service you created for port 100
