How do I track web traffic per device?
kulacrosse Newbie ✭
I have a new SonicWall and am unfamiliar with it. I have tried to configure it so that I can log all web traffic as it relates to the devices in my household, however, I have been unable to figure out how to do that. Can anyone help or point me to some documentation that will detail how this can be done?

Thank you, based on the first reference, it's set up correctly. I seem to have a different version than the second reference, however, so I'm struggling to make sure it's correctly set up. I'll look into it again this weekend and see if I can map the correct locations. Thanks!
@kulacrosse SonicWALL wants you to buy their logging and reporting system, GMS (server on premised) or network cloud. This will log all the data for later review. You could setup a syslog server and try to parse it but not so easy.
Great, I guess I should have not trusted the advice of my IT friend blindly. $500 in the hole for a home device and it doesn't even do what I want it to do - which is completely ridiculous for that price. This is the most basic of functionality! 😤
Thanks for clarifying!
Sonicwalls are NOT consumer-grade devices. Business/enterprise devices commonly require licensing to access features.
It helps to do your own research.
Wow, are you this nice in person too? FWIW, a good friend that's a senior IT engineer recommended this device to me based on my other needs.
I do not mean to offend, I am just straight forward.
To clarify, you do NOT need GMS or NMS to get reporting. You can get that from AppFlow reports (which as I mentioned in the post I linked above, is a licensed feature), but then you'll find there are other limitations...
You might be able to get your money back. I believe authorized resellers are supposed to give you 30-day return policy if you don't like it.
