    Feature/Application: 

    How to enable or disable a NAT policy from the Command Line Interface (CLI).

    Procedure:

    For this example, A Nat Policy for a FTP server will be used as shown in the screenshot below.

     


    Also, verify on the Sonicwall Network > Interface page that SSH is enable for the WAN interface; click the configure button to see the Interface configuration page as shown below.
     

     

    To connect to the Sonicwall’s CLI, connect the console cable to Sonicwall and a PC.

    Open a Terminal Emulation Software like HyperTerminal or Putty.

    Configure the following parameters to login to the Sonicwall CLI:

    o    Bit per second: 115200

    o    Data bits: 8

    o    Parity: None

    o    Stop bits: 1

    o    Flow control: None

    On the CLI page, login to the Sonicwall.

     

    To Disable the Nat Policy, Enter the following commands:

    ·         Configure

    ·         Nat

    ·         Show nat                             (to see policies and get number for the policy to disable/enable)

     

     

    ·         Modify  #                             (to modify policy 14 enter  “modify 14”)

     

    Just enabling or disabling the nat policy will not work, you have to make a change to it and then enable or disable it. For Example change the inbound-interface. 

    ·         Inbound-interface  any

    ·         No Enable                           disables NAT Policy

    ·         End                                     saves the changes and exits.

    ·         Show nat                             verifies policy is disabled

     

    To Enable the Nat Policy, edit the inbound-interface and then use the enable command.

    ·         Inbound-interface  “X1”

    ·         Enable                                                   To re-enable NAT

    ·      End
