You should be able to set up a VPN tunnel between those two routers as long as they both agree on the protocol settings.

I dont have a lot of experience with VPN connections but looking at the Cisco E3000 manual (http://home.cisco.com/assets/presskit/userguides/e3000_ug.pdf) all that is mentioned is VPN Passthrough. The reason I mentioned that I have a mac on the other side of the e3000 is because I'm wondering if the connection would have to be between the Sonicwall and the Mac. If so then is this possible and how would I accomplish this

Thanks?

This appliance doesn't have site to site vpn capabilities.  The VPN passthrough is to allow an appliance behind the e3000 to establish VPN connections egress.You best option is to connect to the 2040 from the Mac.  Sonicwall doesn't make a global vpn client for the Mac, but there are some options.  IPSecuritas has a free client.  Here is a link on how to configure that:http://www.experts-exchange.com/viewQuestion.jsp?qid=26326637Here is a paid option:http://www.equinux.com/us/products/vpntracker/vendor/10/index.htmlHope that helps!

Digitap has your best answer. I have used IPSecuritas to VPN to a Sonicwall from a MAC. It was a little trial & error. You're using that (ipsecuritas) instead of Sonicwall's GVC client (i.e. VPN client).

I guess this solution was correct but I couldn't use it. I was told by P and VP not to impliment VPN connections for individual users.
