After restarting, My port forwarding is not working
RAFEEK Newbie ✭
I have connected SonicWall WAN using a PPPOE connection. I did all configuration for port forwarding. I am facing a problem, that after restarting a SonicWall port forwarding in not working. I have found that, after restarting a firewall public IP address will change automatically. so, it is not synchronizing on port forward address object.
After restarting i need to assign manually..... For every time. so solve is there?😪

@RAFEEK is this for real? If you have a dynamic IP you cannot define an Address Object statically. Just use the X1 IP (or whatever WAN interface) in your Access and NAT rules and you should be golden.
Yes, Dynamic IP I cannot set on Address Object statically. But one thing i need to know. Last week I have did the Fortigate Firewall configuration. The public IP have given 0.0.0.0 so it is automatically synchronizing. After restarting a Firewall. That means, In sonicwall fireware also should me option.
@RAFEEK if your WAN ip address is dynamic use the respective Interface object for your NAT and Access rules as I mentioned above. The default is "X1 IP" for example.
Maybe this is something worth reading:
