Configuring SonicWall Routers in the Old Web Interface

SonicWall Old Interface

Tested on the following firmware versions:

  • Firmware Version 6.5.x.x and later

Adding/editing 8x8 subnets is recommended when available. Please click here and review the Traffic Shaping and Specific Subnet/Port Configuration section. (Login required.)

We highly recommend consulting an IT or network professional when configuring advanced network settings or devices. NAT issues causing duplicate ports have been reported for firmware version 6.2.3.1.-1.9n.

Known Issues

  • SonicWall TZ400 requires Consistent NAT to be on. The exception to this would be if the TZ400 is on firmware version SonicOS Enhanced 6.2.5.3-35n. With this firmware version, disable Consistent NAT.
  • Firmware version 6.2.3.x causes Duplicate UDP ports regardless of NAT settings.
  • Firmware verion 6.2.7 has DPI (deep packet inspection) under access groups on NSA series, which causes CQ issues despite rules added in.
  • Firmware verion 6.2.7.7 23n (and higher): 802.1p tagging breaks phone connectivity.
