I replaced my firewall for a recommended one from Ring Central (Dell SOHO Sonicwall). In setting it up using the guide located here: https://netstorage.ringcentral.com/guides/dell.pdf I see that there is a typo on page 15 (See the same screenshots but different descriptions? I figured that out and went on.

Then I was haveing QoS issues and decided to double check my settings. So then I used a different guide from Ring Central (https://success.ringcentral.com/articles/RC_Knowledge_Article/7773 ) and noticed several differences from the SOHO Configuration Guide and this new Optimizing guide.

For instance:

  1. Firewall settings are different for the Medium and Realtime for guaranteed and max burst.
  2. Network: RCFullRange4 and 5 are different from the config guide (See subnets).
  3. There are 2 additional IP addresses in the address objects list (RCFullRange6 and 7) that were not in the first manual.

As you can see I am quite concerned about which manual correct? For now, I am using the settings from the 2nd one listed.

Please advise.

Hello Kinney,

Thank you for pointing this out. I did some research and the Knowledge Article (the second link you posted) has the correct settings listed. I'm working on getting the PDF (first link you posted) updated as well so that they both reflect the correct information.
