PCAnywhere thru two sites with sonicwall TZ170's

I have two locations with TZ170's, PCAnywhere is setup on 3 workstations at both locations, just recently setup the TZ's. Access from anywhere outside the offices is fine (Service/Rule all set). Just learned (to my surprise) today that no one can access each other from behind the firewall, also noticed that I can Remote Desktop the computers behind it either from either location, but fine from outside. I am competent enough to get it setup this far and I have tried to put in a rule to open the same port "in reverse" but nothing seems to work, there has to be simple solution and I can be the only one who has ever done this, if any one knows what I'm missing, please help!

Try this rule first, then telnet the ports.
ANY --> PCAnywhere --> ANY
ANY --> RDP --> ANY

If you can get in from the rule above, try this rule:
LAN --> PCAnywhere --> LAN
LAN --> RDP --> LAN

50centos: I think you are on the right track but I don't know exactly what to file in here, can you please be a little more explicit.

There is no service called RDP, if it is needed, then I need details on what to fill in to add that service.

Port Range? Protocal?

What do I fill in for (ANT-->PCAnywhere-->ANY) the rule?
Service?
Source? Add begin? Add End?
Destination? Add Begin? Add End?

Port Range? Protocal? RDP = TCP/UDP = 3389
Port Range? Protocal? PCAnywhere = TCP/UDP = 5631-5632

What do I fill in for (ANY-->PCAnywhere-->ANY) the rule? Yes
Service?
Source? Add begin? Add End?
Destination? Add Begin? Add End?

See answer above. If the service RDP or Remote Desktop Protocol is not created. You may create them in your Services menu (don't know where it is, not a SonicWall user).
Services to create:
From Port 1024-65535 --> To Port 3389 = RDP
From Port 1024-65535 --> To Port 5631-5632 = PCAnywhere

After that, add that original rule that I posted. If it works, lock-down the rule that I posted.
