First off don't plug anything into the plug that says Console. Next you have 5 X ports X0- X5 If your just connecting a desktop computer you should plug the ethernet cable from your desktop to the X3 jack, and so one if you are connecting directly to the Router. If you are going to use wireless connection then you don't need to plug anything into the back of the Sonicwall 205, you'll need to log into the router and assign a password so you can log on from your remote device.
The Cisco connect software came on the CD in the box with the router. If was used to configure the router when new. This can be used to fix the router now. I could guide you through a manual configuration but the software is a much faster easier method. I would recommend you try that route. Get the CD and run from there if you are worried about phishing.
Plug in a LAN (Local Area Network) cable into the back of your PC/Laptop and into your router. To find out the address of your router follow these steps: Go to 'start', 'run' and type in 'cmd' (without quotes) and press enter. In the black command box which opens type in 'ipconfig' (again, no quotes) and press enter. In the information displayed you should see 'Default Gateway', there will be a number next to this, it will be something similar to 192.168.1.1 Now open an internet browser window and type in the number which you have just found out and press enter. This will bring you to your routers configuration webpage. Enter the information which you should find on the back of the router for login details. Once here you should see a 'Wireless' configuration tab, click this and there will be a security section, this will have your WPA or WEP password in (depending on which you are running).
If you haven't changed any of the settings from the originals then it may well be written on the back of the router anyway.
There are many reasons for your problem, make sure you have the Computer and Register PC are in the switch section of the Sonicwall - not in the WAN port. The router should allow traffic to flow by default. Check the Operating system and turn off any firewalls, the router will take care of that.
Please find below is to configure what ever you want.
Setup Wizard - This wizard will help you quickly configure the SonicWALL to secure your Internet connection. Once completed, you can use the SonicWALL Web Management Interface for additional configuration.
Registration & License Wizard - This wizard will help you register you and your firewall with mysonicwall.com and obtain licenses for additional Security Services features.
PortShield Interface Wizard - Segment and configure the integrated managed LAN switch of the SonicWALL.
Public Server Wizard - Quickly configure your SonicWALL to provide public access to an internal server.
VPN Wizard - Create a new site-to-site VPN Policy or configure the WAN GroupVPN to accept connections from the SonicWALL Global VPN Client
If you can't get the manament working initially I suggest the following
Setup a console connection
Type "enable" and press enter to access priveleged exec mode on the ASA
Type "config terminal" and press enter to access configuration mode
Type "configure factory-default" and press enter to load default settings.
Assign a static IP to your PC of 192.168.1.5 and try to browse to https://192.168.1.1 (PC is plugged into management interface)
The key with any VPN solution is to make sure that the configurations on both ends match. I am not very familiar with this particular product, but it looks like you need to have the proper VPN licenses installed first.
There are two types of VPN you can do.
1) Site to Site - This is where the are two static boxes that you want to create an encrypted tunnel between
2) Remote User access - This is where mobile users connect to a central site over an encrypted tunnel from their home or on the road.
Next, take a looks at the User Guide PDF here:
Chapter 10 tells how to configure the VPN on the Firebox side. You would just duplicate your settings if your doing option #1.
Chapter 11 tells how to configure the VPN on the client side. This section would tell you how to configure the client software for option #2.
Hope this helps.
