Sonicwall Setup - user vpn via NetExtender

Sonicwall 400


15 Remote users

When setting up a main Sonicwall 400 and another at a satellite site I was asked the question about needing the MX and A records.

Why are these needed for the Sonicwall?

    Who is asking for MX and A records? What was the context of the question?

    a network engineer is upgrading our network to Sonicwall TZ400

    a main office and a satellite office will get the upgrade

    we will change our current remote access to NetExtender

    we don't have web or email services on premises but we do have a active directory, dns, dhcp server (Win 2016)

    the sonicwall will use the local active directory for authenication

    Hi @ACETECH,

    SonicWall doesn't need these unless and until you use domain name to connect to the SonicWall on Netextender. Also, to access local resources using domain name when connected via Netextender, you would specify the DNS server address on the SonicWall SSLVPN configuration.

    Hope this answers your question.
