I have a SoniWALL NSA 3500 that I am trying to configure to open port 8000 for a Network Video Recorder (Hikvision). I want to port forward. I created an object for port 8000 and then for the internal IP address that the recorder is going to use. I then went through the Public Server Wizard and and entered the internal IP and then the wizard went ahead and added our WAN address and then created the inside, outside and loopback parameters. For all intents and purposes this should have opened port 8000 once I went through the wizard.
Issue is when I try accessing from outside (or even inside my LAN network) using our WAN IP and then adding the 8000 suffix (x.x.x.x:8000) it's not reachable. I believe I should receive at least a SonicWALL test page, correct? Even if the device is not plugged into the switch yet I should still get something from the SonicWALL I believe.
Can anyone tell me if there is anything else I can do to make sure that port is open? Web tests still say the port is closed.
Any help would be most appreciated!
