Configuring sonicwall TZ215 ports for VOIP phone system

Hello, I am trying to configure some ports in a sonicwall TZ-215. I've created services and service groups for some of the ports, although they are not open according to a port scan. I'm sure I am missing something.  I have little knowledge of sonicwalls, so this is something new for me. I need to create some ports and port ranges in TCP, UDP, and RTP for audio. Any advice or info would be great. Once I can get at least one port open, I should be able to handle the rest.

Opening up ports in a SonicWALL from the outside means
1) create a NAT policy
2) create a Firewall rule

for #2 create the firewall rule on the original packet, not the natted one

e.g.
NAT
src=any, translated (t) src = original
dst = X1 IP (or other public IP), t dst = private IP address server / pbx
srvc = service group with the appropriate VoIP protocols, t srvc = original

the FW rule from WAN to LAN would look like
src = any, dst = public IP, srvc = service group

I've attached the config i made so far, i have a bunch of ports to add but I'm just trying to get the first one going first. as of now it's not working. 192.168.1.50 is the VoIP server IP. trying to get TCP port 4400 open for starters. Thanks for you input.

1) the object has a private IP address, so it should be zone LAN not WAN?
2) in the NAT policy, destination should be the PUBLIC IP address you want to use, and Translated Destination the PRIVATE IP address
3) for the firewall rule leave SOURCE port to ANY, and set DESTINATION to the PUBLIC IP used in #2

example, using X1 IP
say X1 = 2.2.2.2
say X0 = 192.168.1.1
say PBX = 192.168.1.2

NAT policy
src = ANY, transl src = ORIGINAL
dst = 2.2.2.2, transl dst = 192.168.1.2
srvs = TCP 4400, transl srvc = ORIGINAL

Firewall rule
from zone WAN
to zone LAN
src = ANY
dst = 2.2.2.2
src port = ANY
service = TCP 4400

Hi Jeff,

The best way to open ports is to use the Wizard located in the top right corner then select Public Servers. This will provide the most complete and comprehensive way to open ports properly. From there you can fine tune it, for example, substituting Service & Access Groups instead of single Address & Service Objects or filtering Sources in Access Rules.

I'd delete the Access Rules and NAT Policies you have setup. They are incorrect. For example, unless you have enabled Outbound Filtering, there is no need to create any LAN>WAN Access Rules because everything is allowed by default.

Let me know how it goes and if you have any other questions!

Thank you. I will look into that. I'll update this question at that time when I get back to working on this issue.
