Need to get Sonicwall Global VPN Client working remotely, connecting to the AT&T Netopia DSL device, then to my Sonicwall TZ 170, and ultimately to a workstation on the network

Using Netopia DSL from AT&T, then a Sonicwall TZ 170, and several Windows XP workstations, and one server on a LAN.  I have a Global VPN Client license, but when I  do the setup and enter the IP address of the Netopia, my Sonicwall never responds asking me for a key, or login - it fails to connect.  HELP!

Your Netopia needs to be setup in either bridging mode with the SonicWALL as the firewall/router, or you need to designate the SonicWALL as a "DMZ" host and allow at least port 500 traffic to it from your public IP address.
