Sonicwall Pro 2040 VPN client connection
Posted on 2006-11-02
I have tried to configure VPN on my Sonicwall Pro 2040 with SonicOS Standard 126.96.36.199-77s. Problem is that my office network is 192.168.xxx.xxx. But when i use the Global VPN client, im getting a message that im getting connected successfully to my sonicwall, but im getting an IP allocated which is like 188.8.131.52 and obviously i cannot connect to any of my servers. I thought i should get a 192.168.xxx.xxx address.
Let me give you the configuration I have done and maybe you can point out where i am going wrong.
Under VPN - Settings tab, i have used pretty much most of the default settings in the default Group VPN policy.
Under 'Advanced' tab settings, these are the options that i have chosen..
Disable all VPN Windows Networking (NetBIOS) Broadcasts
Enable Fragmented Packet Handling
Ignore DF (Don't Fragment) Bit
Enable NAT Traversal
Enable IKE Dead Peer Detection
Clean up Active tunnels when Peer Gateway DNS name resolves to a different IP Address
Under DHCP over VPN tunnel tab,
Central Gateway configuration:
Send DHCP requests to the server addresses listed below (select this option and given our internal DHCP server's address)
The above options are the ones pretty much that i have configured under VPN settings..
Now i tried to connect using Global VPN client and i got a message that im succesfully connected to the IP address of the sonicwall, now instead of getting a 192.168.xxx.xxx which is the internal LAN address of our office network, im getting some IP address like 184.108.40.206. I just dont get it why im getting an IP like that. I cant obviously connect to any of the servers in my office. Can someone please tell me what i should be checking or correcting as im not very much familliar with firewalls and vpn, infact this is the first time im configuring a vpn. So i would really appreciate any help to solve my problem.
