Sonicwall is connected to two seperate LANs, but DHCP will only assign IP addresses from one of those LANs to VPN clients
Posted on 2006-04-26
I have a Sonicwall 3060 connected to two seperate LANs (each LAN being a different company). These two companies are sharing the Sonicwall and the T1 internet connection. Company 1 is connected to the X0 interface, Company 2 is connected to the X2 interface, and the internet is on the X1 interface. These two companies and their users must be isolated from each other as Company 2 is a health care company and governed by HIPAA privacy rules.
The problem is when users connect to their respective LANs via the VPN client, they are only getting assigned an IP address from Company 1. First I tried using the Sonicwall as a DHCP server, then using a Windows DHCP server on each LAN. I got the same results both ways.
How can I set it up so that users from Company 1 will get an IP address for their LAN (192.168.1.x) and users from Company 2 will get one from their IP range (192.168.2.x) when they connect using the Global VPN Client?
