How do I make it so that computers inside our Sonicwall's LAN can access a computer connected to sonicwall's WAN port?

Our Sonicwall is connected directly to our T1 IAD/Router which then goes to the T1 company's data center. They offer a service where you can create an "always on", no configuration VPN connection between 1 Router on the T1 network and another one as long as they both use the same T1 company. Before installing the Sonicwall at location 1, we had this configured so that at location 1 (the 10.0.1.1 network), you could access the files of the other location 2 (the 10.0.2.1 network). so at location 1, typing in 10.0.2.100 would pull up the server at location 2 because that was the ip of the server, and at location 2 you could type in 10.0.1.100 and pull up the sever at location 1. Now that the sonicwall is in place at location 1, the ips are all 192.168.168.###, and we cannot pull up 10.0.2.100. We understand that with the sonicwall, it is understandable to not be able to pull up the files from location 1 at location2 which is okay - but we want to be able to pull up the files of location 2 while at location 1 because we used to do our backups from location 1 to location 2 (for offsite backups) by just typing in 10.0.2.100 as the place to backup to. How can we setup so that traffic to location 2 from location 1 is allowed and not blocked.
