Site to site VPN tunnel with 2 sonicwall firewalls

Posted on 2009-02-11

our main office has a sonicwall PRO 2040 Standard.

our new office, not a main office, just a smaller office, has a sonicwall TZ 180.

i would like to setup a VPN tunnel between the two locations.

the main office has an exchange server and right now there is only one user at the new office, and they are using the client software to connect, get a local IP, and connect to exchange. in a few weeks, we will have multiple employees at the new location and i would like to establish a tunnel instead of installing client software on all the machines.

both locations have different private IPs ranges

main office is
new office is

just to make it clear, i would like the new office to be able to access the network w/o having to use the client software.

thanks for any help
