Network failover using MPLS and comcast on a sonicwall NSA 2400
Posted on 2010-08-12
I have a sonicwall nsa 2400, we just installed a new MPLS line into the organization but have not completed the setup due to some technical difficulties either between my tech staff or the ISP. none the less, I have a dedicated internet connection at 2 sites, we will call this one x1. x1 is on 'comcast' and has a site to site vpn running. We are adding a MPLS circuit, that has both a WAN connection for internet connectivity, and a MPLS circuit. We can call this one x2.
The isp has 2 ports on the supplied router, 1 for the 'WAN' and 1 for the MPLS. The WAn side is connected directly to the Sonic wall port x2, and they (the isp) has us plugging the MPLS port into our main switch.
The ISP says they can ping across the mpls circuit into the organization, but we cannot get traffic to run over the MPLS circuit from inside the org.
The site to site on the X2 connection is working over the internet via a secondary IP setup on the VPN connection, but not over the MPLS.
Any ideas? Am I missing a route? should I be making a new LAN port on the sonic wall for the MPLS? I am stumped and getting friction from the ISP to make decisions.
Thanks in advance.
