Resetting your Sonicwall Pro 1260 firewall will restore it to factory default. Only reset the firewall if you need to reconfigure the hardware completely or if it is not working properly. Resetting it causes you to lose all of your saved settings. You do not need to access the configuration page to perform the reset; do so right from the hardware itself.
