If the SonicWALL's admin password is lost, there is no backdoor or other mechanism to bypass the administrator login. Please note that prefs files do not contain the admin name and password. So if you reset the firmware and import a current prefs file, you can gain access using the default login credentials ('admin' & 'password'). Without a current prefs file, you must reset the firmware and configure from scratch.

For models running SonicOS (Enhanced or Standard), you can reboot to factory defaults. This resets all settings including the admin name, password and LAN IP address. Import the current prefs file. The configuration is restored and use the defaults 'admin' and 'password' to login.

For models running Firmware 6.X, you must reset the firmware (wipe and upload using the reset procedure). Import the current prefs file. The configuration is restored and use the defaults 'admin' and 'password' to login. The 'Reset to Factory Defaults' button does not reset the admin name, password or LAN IP address for these models

There is no way to retrieve the lost password unless you wish to use a bruteforce method to attempt all passwords in a password list.
This process can take a very long time and may not show any usable results.
It is faster and easier to reset the device to factory defaults and re-configure it with a password you can remember, then performing the above mentioned procedure.

I am forget the my sonicwall administrator password. how to login

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
You can't login, all you can do is to reset the SonicWall. There is a small pinhole on the front panel, hold it for some time... that will boot it in a safe mode to reset it.
I hope you have a clear picture now.

Password recovery

Try restarting your router. There should be a button on the back of the router that you can press with a paper clip or something. After that your password should change to something like:

username: admin
password: admin


username: admin
password: password

Sonicwall client won't connect to the internet

The default VPN policy rules prevent LAN access, also known as split-tunneling, since this creates a security risk (the ability of the VPN session to be hijacked or compromised through a covert channel).
