No Internet when connected to Sonic Wall VPN

Hello Sonic Wall experts,

We have a Sonic Wall TZ 210 which works good for VPN but when your connected to it you can't access the Internet.

I imagine this must be a split tunneling issue, does anyone know how to fix this?

When you look at the properties on the VPN policy, what is selected under "allow connections to"?

Do you have the checkbox for "Set Default Route as this gateway" checked?

Also check the DNS on the VPN connection, run tracert and ping to identify where you can and cannot access then check your settings

Yes "Set Default Route as this Gateway" is checked

As far as checking DNS, you can ping/access anything internall not externally

I'd look at the firewall rules next. Is there any rule allowing/blocking traffic from the VPN IP subnet to the WAN.
