Permanently delete default rules
I have recently purchased two firewall NSa 2700 in HA. When I turned them on and configured the HA I saw that many access rules are configured by default in the firewall. I have deleted all of them by enabling the option in the "diag" menu but the surprise I got was that once I turn off or restart the firewalls these rules are created again automatically. Is there any way to delete these rules and start creating rules from 0?
I thought that this was due to the options to automatically add rules in the checks that appear in each zone but when I deactivate these checks, all the deleted rules continue to be generated automatically after each reboot or power off and on.
I hope you can help me.
Thank you very much in advance and best regards,
As per my knowledge, You cannot delete the default SonicWALL rules. but you can either deny/allow the rule.
The rules are auto-created for a reason. Learn to live with them as you will never be able to get rid of them.
Having the same question.
Disabled in DIAG and disabled in Zones. But rules appear after reboot.
I do not use most of the zones so it would have a better overview just seeing the rules i created.
Workaround i thought to move to manual priority set my rules from the top and then add a Deny All rules beneath the ones i use.
So if auto generated rules would pop up again they would be below the Deny All. Would this work?
cannot delete default rule. You should create shadowing rules for default rules.
did get rid of the default by disabling them in zones and diag.
Only the management still remains which is OK.
thank you for your support!
Semantics... I suppose no one asked if you had DISABLED the auto-create rules in the Zones... because that isn't DELETING.
