SonicWALL TZ 180
Currently on my company we are trying to configure our Sonic firewall to map an external IP to internal with a port open. This is for our security cameras setup in which we are trying to view them from another network. Can some one help me please I need to get this done ASAP. Our Sonic firewall is TZ-180. 99.18.245.x to 192.168.1.x to port XXX.

Hi Ricardo,

Go to the ‘Network > One-to-One NAT’ page.
Check the box next to ‘Enable One-to-One NAT’, and click on the ‘Apply’ button.
Click on the ‘Add…’ button.
Enter the address of your server in the ‘Private Range Start:’ box.
Enter the Public IP address in the ‘Public Range Start’ box.
Enter ’1′ in the ‘Range Length’ box.
Click on the ‘OK’ button.

Then you need to allow this traffic through the firewall rules.

Go to the ‘Firewall > Access Rules’ page.
Click on the ‘Add…’ button.
Select ‘Allow’
Select the ‘Service’ that you are hosting on the server (for example ‘Web (HTTP)’ if the camera uses TCP port 80).
For the ‘Source’ select ‘*’ and ‘*’ for the ‘Address Range Begin’ box.
For the Destination select the interface where the server is located, and enter it’s IP address in the ‘Address Range Begin’ and ‘Address Range End’ boxes.
Click on the ‘OK’ button.

That should then allow someone on the Internet to access the camera using the service you have specified in the rule.

    You can test the rule validity assuming that this is a TCP service by telnetting to the address/port opened on the firewall. You do not need to have any special software to perform this test. You can also watch the Sonicwall logs to see if it detects the connection attempts. In the IT trenches? So am I - read my IT-Trenches blog
