Sonicwall Routing

I have a Sonicwall NSA router that is having a very interesting routing issue.  I have a Windows 2003 RRAS server on the LAN side of the Sonicwall that is making a connection to another Windows 2003 RRAS server.  The Sonicwall is then connected to an MPLS network with four sites.  The strange thing is I can reach the remote network on the far side Windows 2003 server from one of my remote MPLS sites but the remote Windows 2003 server can not get past my main site.  Here is a network diagram to make it clear

Remote RRAS ( RRAS ( Sonicwall ( Router ( Cloud---Far MPLS Router ( Sonicwall ( Machine (

Basically when I log into remote machine I can ping anything in the subnet but anyone on the subnet can not ping the remote machine or anything past Sonicwall (  I have setup the following static route in the near Sonicwall router.

Source:  Any
Service:  Any
Interface: X0
Metric: 5

Any help would be great

Do you have a route on the remote sonicwall saying how to get to your network? Like the reverse of what you have on the near sonicwall?
Also do you have rules to allow that traffic through to your LAN?

I do have the route setup but I just noticed the remote firewall was blocking the traffic at the firewall.  DOH
