Not able to see HP C6180 on SonicWall TZ 180

We have small Lan
Cable Modem -SonicWALL TZ180
-W2K PC wired
-Vista PC wired
-XP PC wireless
-Vista Laptop wireless (2)
-HP C6180 Printer wireless

All devices are able to obtain an IP from router (TZ 180)
No PC/Laptop can see printer.
Actually We can see the printer by pinging it's IP, by going to the IP in a web browser.  You can telnet into the printer IP:9001 and print directly (i.e. line printing).
However if you try to add the printer it is not visible from Windows nor Mac clients
All clients have most current driver package from HP

    We connected the printer directly to a desktop PC and enabled sharing initially but that did not work.


    This Desktop runs W2K





    Having multiple versions of MSW the sharing configuration wants to install drivers of each client.  However as the Desktop is W2K even with the most recent HP driver package the sharing configuration does not show anything newer than W2K in the additional driver dialog.


    The printer did work previously (substitute Linksys WLAN for TZ 180)

    Having spent many hours with both sonicwall and hp it appears that this problem can not currently be resolved.

    First the LAN and WLAN portions of the router are on separate networks and you can write as many firewall rules to allow traffic to pass between them but you still won't be able to share a printer among both LAN and WLAN clients. I realize that there obvious concerns about allowing WLAN traffic onto your LAN but it creates problems if you have a wireless laptop, tablet POS etc... that needs to connect to a printer or a file server on the LAN.

    Second the only client I could get zeroconf to work on was with a Mac. Great for me because thats what I use but not helpful to the 95% of the worlds Windows users who will have to manually configure a TCP/IP port to access a networked printer.

Not sure if you've done this already or not, but I would suggest installing the printer manually as a local printer, and create a TCP/IP port that points at the IP of the Printer. Rudimentary way to go, but should help.

Downlaod tz180 firmware


You need to login to mysonicwall.com to download this firmware. Did you create an account at mysonicwall.com and register this SonicWALL in your account? If you haven't you will need your device serial number and activation code, both of which are printed on the back of your firewall.

I need to add an ip range to my sonicwall tz 170


This is not directly possible to do with a TZ170 as the device will only allow configuration for 1 static or dynamic IP at a time for the WAN port.

However this being the case, I suggest setting the SonicWALL up as a perimeter firewall and place devices that require the other public IPs form the additional IP range behind the TZ170. Basically the SonicWALL becomes the gateway for the other IPs needed as long as the range of the IP block is contiguous.

This would involve using the 4 ports of the LAN on the back of the TZ170 to connect directly to the other devices or if it is more then 4 devices, using a switch connected to the LAN side of the SonicWALL to provide connectivity to the multiple devices behind it. Most TZ170 are licensed for 10 connections on the LAN side and if you require more then 10, additional licenses will need to be purchased.

I would be careful pushing too much traffic through a TZ170 as it is designed for Small Business use and will quickly become overloaded with too much traffic causing high latency/traffic bottlenecks and in extreme cases connections being dropped. This is especially true for multiple VPNs.

I have a sonicwall pro 2040 and while the firewall rules look correct, I cannot get traffic from the WLAN to the LAN, nor from the WLAN to the WAN.


SonicWALL Wireless Configuration Wizard To access SonicWALL’s Wireless Configuration Wizard, log on to the SonicWALL router, then click the Wireless button found within the left navigation bar of SonicWALL’s Web-based management interface. The Wireless Status page will be displayed. Click the Wireless Wizard button that appears toward the top-right of the screen.
The SonicWALL Wireless Configuration Wizard will appear. Click the Next button to proceed with the wireless administration utility.
The wizard’s first step will appear as seen in Figure A. Step one addresses wireless local area network (WLAN) network settings. You must specify the WLAN IP address and subnet mask before continuing. In addition, a checkbox is provided for enabling Windows networking support between the wired local area network and the WLAN. Be sure to check the box to enable communication between the LAN and WLAN. Then, click Next.

Step two requires setting the Service Set ID (SSID), radio mode, country code and channel. The SonicWALL wizard provides a blank field for specifying the SSID. The default SSID is sonicwall. Consider changing the SSID to a value that reveals nothing about the organization or office in which it is deployed. I typically deploy SSIDs as HomeNetwork and BusinessNetwork, as doing so provides potential hackers with less information about a network (particularly in more heavily populated areas such as apartments and office parks).
On most SonicWALL routers, including the popular TZ 170 wireless model, three radio modes are available: 2.4GHz 802.11 b, 2.4GHz 802.11g or 2.4GHz 802.11g and b Mixed mode. Using the provided drop-down menu, select the mode you wish to use within your organization.

The last item to configure within Step 2: WLAN 802.11b/g Settings is the channel. Channels one through 11 are available options. Or, AutoChannel is an alternative choice and, in fact, the default. Choosing AutoChannel allows the wireless network equipment to automatically negotiate the best channel settings. Once the channel is specified, clicking Next continues to the next step.
Step 3: WLAN Security Settings enables configuring one of three security modes for the
SonicWALL wireless router. The three security mode choices are:
  • WiFiSec VPN Security – The default selection, WiFiSec VPN Security creates an IPSec-powered VPN over which the wireless traffic travels.
  • WEP + Stealth Mode – Utilizes Wired Equivalent Protection (WEP) to secure wireless communications.
  • Connectivity – Implements wireless communications featuring no encryption or access controls.
When selecting WiFiSec VPN Security and clicking Next, the Step 4: WiFiSec – VPN Client User Authentication page appears. This step helps create a user name and password for a new user with VPN client access privileges. The WLAN WiFiSec security setting will enable the SoniCWALL Group VPN feature. If you wish to edit user privileges, you can log on to the SonicWALL router’s Web-based administrative interface and edit user permissions by clicking Users | Settings.
After a user name and password are supplied, click Next to proceed to the wizard’s fifth step. The Step 5: Wireless Guest Services screen allows you to enable guest wireless access while also specifying the guest account name, password and account and session lifetimes.
Once these values are supplied, click Next to view a Wireless Configuration Summary. Clicking Apply prompts the SonicWALL Configuration Wizard to apply the settings and configuration parameters you’ve entered into the wizard. When the wizard completes, a confirmation page should then appear (with a Finish button being the only available option).

Sonicwall Safe mode Problem


How do I access the SafeMode menu?
In emergency situations, you can access the SafeMode menu by holding in the Reset button on the back
of the TZ 180 (it’s the small pinhole button located to the left of the Console port) for 12-14 seconds until
the ‘Test’ light begins flashing yellow. When the SonicWALL is booted into the SafeMode menu, assign a
workstation a temporary IP address of 192.168.168.200 and attach it to a LAN interface on the TZ 180
Then, using a modern web browser (Microsoft IE6.x, Mozilla 1.4+), access the special SafeMode GUI
using the device’s default IP address of 192.168.168.168. You will be able to boot the device using a
previously saved image, or you can upload a new version of firmware with the ‘Upload New Firmware’
button.

Adding offices to my remote server


The SonicWall TZ 190 is a good appliance for the Tampa location.

The SonicWall TZ 150 is a good appliance for the remaining locations.

For the remote locations, a decision has to be made as to how many sites you want to interconnect to. If you want the network to be such that each site connects to every other site, then you will need the SonicWall TZ 190 as it supports VPNs for up to 15 sites.

In the end, everything comes down to cost. For a Small-to-Midsize Business, this is considered operational cost.


Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
