Can someone help with the step by step configuration of a sonicwall NSA 2400 firewall to allow Ms Direct Access please. I have gone through the sonicwall forums and have failed to get any help.

what OS version do you run? If you put the DA server behind the NAT-firewall only the least efficient protocol (IP-HTTPS) can be used for DA. If you want use IPSEC or Teredo the DA server must have configured public IP addresses. Here the article listing the firewall ports. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd857262.aspx

The server configuration went well and the issue now is for the client to go through the sonicwall nsa 2400 firewall from outside.
The client tries to connect and stays on connecting for ever.
I am testing with a windows 8 client.
Wednesday, April 03, 2013 3:25 PMFrom external, not from the Windows 8 client, can you verify what certificate is installed on the DA server?
e.g. open a web browser and go to https://URLofYourDAServer or use openssl s_client -connect URLofYourDAServer:443
