Thank you Dr.

No private addresses changed. I'll try the tracert tomorrow. Thankfully, we aren't a 24/7 shop, so I can sleep on this and maybe have a different perspective on the morning.

Subject: Re: New public IP address not working

Did any IP addresses change on the INSIDE of the firewall? If not then
this is certainly a SonicWall issue not an IBM i issue.

Since you can get onto your own workstation it sounds like routing and
NAT etc are correct for that entry at least.

If any inside addresses changed then it could certainly be routing on IBM i.

From IBM i can you do TraceRoute<> ? You should be able
to trace clear to

First off, I'm a one-man IT shop, and networking is NOT my specialty, AND my normal network consultant is busy dealing with another customer's emergency already - so I'm grasping at straws here:

My ISP just assigned me a block of new IP addresses with our latest upgrade, so I had to assign a new public IP for the System i.

Made the changes to the firewall, and thought all was well; all I had to do was change the public IPs from old to new - but now I'm unable to connect to the System i remotely.

You would think this would be a firewall issue, but I've poured over this Sonicwall and all the routing looks correct to me. I've even confirmed with the ISP that the IP is routed correctly on their end.

Is there any TCP setting on the i that would be related to a public IP address? I've gone through the CFGTCP options and all I see is the local IP and domain referenced. (I'm able to connect to my desktop remotely via TeamViewer)
