Whitelisting a IP Range to access SonicWALL

Hello all,

I've been researching and Googling and I believe this is the best place to ask.

I want to white list an IP Range for an external vendor who does pen testing and vulnerability testing for my facility. I just need to ensure that none of the controls like IPS, IDS, Spam filtering and other misc. services are applied to their range. I was told the best way was to whitelist their IP Range but wasn't for sure if this was done within the objects in SonicWALL or if there was a list to actual add the range.

    Step 1. Create one or more Address Objects and add them to an Address Group (e.g., External Security Vendor Group).

    Step 2. Go to each of the Security Services and add that Address Group to the appropriate Exclusion list.

    Step 3. Test and see if any errors are issued in the log when the security testing takes place and fix as needed.
