SonicWALL NSA2400 NetBIOS between two subnet not work with IP Helper
Posted on 2009-05-05
I am using SonicWALL NSA 2400, it work well with the VPN and other thing.
But not I am setting two subnet on two interface. Then the problem here.
On X0 interface is a Default LAN, I am using 192.168.18.x/24
On X1 interface is a Default WAN, with Static Public IP
On X2 interface, it is a Limit LAN (I named it) and I make this as are Public Zero (Like DMZ, but it is not using for DMZ, just other LAN with higher security) that holded 192.168.19.x/24 this LAN IP range.....
The problems is all setting are default, then I plug the workstation A1, A2 on X0, B1 on X2 interface...
The default firewall setting from LAN Limit to LAN is all thing disallow, so I add the NetBIOS Port open and SMB that need for file shared or Network Neigborad port open in the Firewall rules ... to make the B1 workstation can connect to some A1 and A2 workstation ...
The problems is this, only IP can work from the LAM Limit to LAN, other like NetBIOS Name that using \\abc will never work.
So I search the SonicWALL support, finded the IP Helper, then I enabled it and add the following policy also don't work.
X0 to X2 allow
X2 to X0 allow
Both are using Network Based IP and subnet ...
So I am totoal lose on that, if the netbios not work, it is not good for end-user, since some workstation much join the W2K3 AD and some workstation on the X2 interface not need to join the Domain...
On the Defult LAN X0 interface, all workstation are no problems both using IP or NetBIOS to connect to the share resource ....
Any suggest for me is welcome, and I am beginner on this case, so if have detail step by step is good for me.
