THIS ASSIGNMENT IS FOR LEARNING PURPOSES ONLY I'm a new IT professional that's looking to become a sys admin. I deployed a windows vm via azure containing my webserver, thats hosting my site ( I just deployed another vm with SonicWall NSv (Firewall/Security/VPN/Router)-BYOL marketplace appliance thats on a separate vnet in azure. The private ip address of webserver is (, and the private IP of sonicwall is ( I want to put webserver behind the sonicwall firewall, but since they're on two separate vnets they're unable to communicate with each other. I'm having trouble with the configurations I need to make in azure and sonicwall. Can someone please help? Need step by step. Thanks

    • Log in to the SonicWall NSv firewall management interface using the default credentials provided in the Azure Marketplace listing. create a new firewall rule to allow traffic from the web server's VNet to the SonicWall NSv firewall's VNet, and vice versa. ensure that the firewall rules are configured to allow the necessary ports and protocols for your web server to function properly.
    • In the Azure portal, navigate to the web server's network interface and update the default gateway to the private IP address of the SonicWall NSv firewall (
