Sonicwall TZ 180 not passing packets through connected VPN

I have a site to site VPN on a TZ 180 that seems to negotiate fine but I am unable to ping anything on the other side. The other side is setup to allow all traffic from my subnet 192.168.66.0/24. I have attempted everything that seemed to relate to my router in this aarticle on problem #6.

I was thinking about trying to turn off the hardware acceleration to see if that works but they say to cantact Sonicwall if that is the case and I can't afford that.

What about your firewall to allow traffic from their network?  They may be allowing traffic from you, but if your firewall isn't allow traffic from their network, you won't get the ping response from their end.

Aren't sonicwall's configured configured to automatically allow VPN traffic as specified in the tuneel? In the walkthroughs I have read they do not mention anything about a firewall rule. I have tried to configure "alllow Firewall rules and NAT" in the advanced option for the VPN tunnel and then configured a rule to allow all traffic from the 192.168.2.0 network to the 192.168.66.0 network but it still did not work.

When you create the VPN originally, the wizard will automatically create all the rules needed.  I've seen where it didn't create the rules.

Are you running the latest OS for the 180?

I am running firmware SonicOS Standard 3.8.0.1-27s. I think it is farily recent.

Not seeing exactly how the VPN connections are configured at each end or knowing the configuration settings of the sonicwall appliances, I can't be of much help.  You've already performed the basic stuff.  The wizards should have taken care of everything for you.  A TSR from the Sonicwall would give the information we seek, but it would reveal more of your network than I believe you'd like to reveal.  A believe a call to support is your next best step.

The other side of the tunell was misconfigured.

OK...I'm sorry I couldn't have been more help, but thanks for the points!
