I want to explain how to open a port on Sonicwall firewall.
To open a port; you need to create the followings. If you do that in order, it will be easy.
1- Address Object: Create a host on the LAN zone. (For example; Phonesystem computer; 10.x.x.x) If it is not created, create a host for WAN zone. (For example; External IP;
Address Group=You can group some address objects in one group.
2- Service Object: Create 'servicename' with port number or HTTP/HTTPS or another service.
