Routed Mode in NSA2400

I had a L3 linux machine in between the ISP and our Gateway. Gateway is a pfSense Firewall. All NAT and port forwarding is handled by the Gateway.

I replaced the L3 linux machine (lubuntu) with NSA2400. The NSA2400 configured in the routed mode. Now the internet is working. But from internet no one could access the servers and other services in our network. Will NSA2400 work as a L3 linux machine.

The static routes added by default by the NSA2400 while configuring the LAN and WAN interfaces. I don't know to use the NSA2400 as router or L3?

Thanks in advance...

    Hi @THIRUNAVUKKARASU,

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    Yes, NSA 2400 can be configured in Routed Mode. You may need to allow the access rules from WAN to LAN or WAN to Internal Zones accordingly, since everything from WAN to inside is blocked by default.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi @Saravanan ,

    Yes you are correct. I missed that one. By default WAN to LAN is deny. I changed the rules accordingly and now it is working

    Thanks,
