We have a SonicWall TZ170 that has a connection to the internet no problem, however, Site-To-Site VPN is down. After restarting the device, communication between the 2 sites are reinstated for about 2 minutes, and the two locations can ping each other. After 2 minutes, Request is timed Out.

Both sites use the SonicWall TZ170. What could be causing this, need help ASAP, thanks.

Called SonicWall Support, and they couldn't figure it out either. They suggested a firmware update, and that fixed the problem for now. Syslogs is a good recommendation, found couple errors with the VPN in there. Thanks.
