Here is the port numbers used by FileMaker server. http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10672
Depending on what you want to access from the internet will determine what ports you need open. Acording to the FIleMaker KB on an FMS install you need the following:
- Required on all deployments: 5003, 16000, and 16001.
- Additionally required for web publishing: 80 (HTTP) or 443 (HTTPS).
- Ports 5013, 5015, 16004, 16006, 16008, 16010, 16012, 16014, 16016, 16018, 16020, 16021, and 50003 must be available on the machine, but not open in the firewall. For more information, see “One-machine deployment” on page 22.

I'm not familer with the Sonicall. I expect that you should be able to get specific instructions on setting these ports in the manual or on their web ste.
I have some familiarity with the SonicWall OS (more the current 'enhanced', than the much older 'classic', but I've used both). If you have any questions about the settings, I'd be glad to help.

Thanks. I'll play with it awhile.
Thank you for your offer! I will play with it awhile, but if I can't figure it out, I will take you up on your offer :)
Assuming that the TZ 100 runs the same or similar software to the TZ 200, you need to configure 4 different things in the Sonicwall:
• Network/Address Objects (for the FMS computer's IP)
• Network/Services (for port 5003 or whatever ports, as referenced above, apply to what you're trying to do)
• Network/NAT Policies (tying the Address Object to the Service)
• Firewall/Access Rules (WAN->LAN for Service)
I don't know if all firewalls are this way, but for sure the SonicWall is WAY MORE complicated for port forwarding than any standard router where all you need is the external port, internal port, protocol, and computer IP. If you have a service contract with SonicWall, you can call them for more specifics. Or you can buy a contract for a reasonable amount, which will come in handy for any future SonicWall configuration where the level of firewall expertise required can be quite demanding.

My client finally sent me link for their guidebook! I figured out how to open port 5003 for them.
I used this tutorial to open port 5003.
Thank you all for your help and support. Much appreciated.
Glad you solved your problem, Aileen. For the record, the TZ 100 software/procedure IS different than the TZ 200 software/procedure. Similarities exist and still a pretty involved procedure, but the specifics are different.
