We are using SonicWall Firewall Pro 2040 and SonicWall SSL-VPN 2000 devices.  The system should be setup so that users can connect to an exchange sever and access their files.  Currently when a user connects to the VPN the connection is successfully made but the user can't access the sever.  Is the firewall just blocking the VPN users access to the local files?

Are the users getting a correct IP Address?

If your inside network is that same as the clients inside network you will have issues as well...

Dianthonym:

The severs IP is 192.168.120.136 255.255.255.0

The SSL VPN's IP is 192.168.120.2

The clients IP range is 192.168.120.30 to 192.168.120.60  I have confirmed that they are getting an IP from that range when they use the VPN.

There are two Client Rouges setup:
192.168.200.0      255.255.255.0      
192.168.120.0      255.255.255.0

Peralesa:
They are connecting from their home computers.

I just had a report that this is working for some people but not others.  Could there be a setting on the clients computers or routes that is blocking the connection?

I found the issue:
Both the severs network and the remote locations were using the 196.168.1.0 network.  When I changed the users change their remote network to use a different address range it works.
