cannot connect to device on specific port over LAN

Hello all.. I switched to a sopos firewal from netgear and ever since I have been unable to get my phone system's management software to connect to the pbx box.. it attempts to open a connection on port 35300 and simply comes back with the message "cannot open LAN port" 

 

Is there a setting that might cause this on this device?

  • Hi,

    you need to create a firewall rule to allow the traffic out on that port.

    out to where? it's a PC on the LAN trying to access a device also inside the LAN.. 

  • In reply to Luc Bouillon:

    XG is a stateful firewall. You need for every connection through XG a Firewall rule.

    Even LAN to LAN.

    But not, if those clients are in the same subnet without XG interaction (for example both on the same Switch level). 

  • In reply to LuCar Toni:

    I only have one subnet per location, and both these devices are in the same location.. .

     

    but anyway, kets assume that's the problem, if I wanted to create a rule that any PC on the LAN could access 192.168.2.10 on port 35300 how would I go about it? I would like to be able to access it across the VPN as well, but local is most important at this time.
