I have a sonicwall TZ215 , and having a problem with one of my programs and want to see if the firewall is causing the problem. How can I temporally disable the sonicwall firewall in the interface and allow the traffic to see if the program begins to work correctly ? whats the procedure ?

  • Hello @johnbor - I am preparing a detailed answer, but I can give you the outline of it now:

    1) View and search the log monitor for the involved IP addresses is task #1.

    2) If your rules outbound (I assume the program or app is attempting internet traffic from inside) are not wide open, create a rule allowing Any Service from that host IP.

    3) If the rules are not the issue, it could be one of the Security Services: CFS or one of the DPI services which use signatures. You can do exclusions for all of those for your computer's IP address as one level of testing.
