Sonicwall loses acces to specific IP that is inside an IPsec tunnel?
Posted on 2008-11-17
I have a client that uses a TZ170 at one office then has a remote office that uses terminal services for 5 users also with a TZ170 using a branch tunnel. We have printers mapped to internal ip addresses on the different subnet as the main office. office subnet is 192.168.1
x and remote is 192.168.5.x
Every few days, the VPN loses traffic to a printer that is static IP (192.168.5.193) and it will no longer print. You can ping the server from the remote location, but you can't ping from the server to the printer or any other station. But oddly, the users can still access programs and such directly without problems.
I have pulled my hair out over this problem and Sonicwall has no idea either. I have recreated the tunnel, tried logging the traffic and it just shuts down. Any ideas?
The only way to get the connection back is to reset the sonicwall and it will work for a few days.
