I have been battling with a new sonicwall tz 215 for 3 days now trying to simply get a port open to allow web traffic through. I have tried every tutorial, watched every youtube video, used the wizards all to no avail. I am switching out a cisco rv042 for this device. It is currently configured and works so I know that the internal machine and the ISP are allowing the proper actions to occur. When I look at the log it says Web Request Dropped. I have also used various port checkers and no matter what I can't get a single port to show open.
I have restored the Sonicwall back to factory multiple times and started the process over from scratch just to make sure I don't have any rules or whatever that would prevent ports from being opened. Has anyone battled with a sonicwall device before and possibly have any other tips / suggestions? Is there any screenshots I could provide to allow you to see if I am missing something? Any help is greatly appreciated. I am at a complete loss and don't know what else to try.
