Routing between VPNs on Sonicwall

Posted on 2011-03-01
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Our office is using a Sonicwall NSA 240 (site A) has a VPN to a hosted server (site B).  We have a vendor (site C) that needs access to the server at site B but that host won't allow secondary tunnels for vendors.  

My host at site B said I would have to create a tunnel between A and C, then route the VPN traffic to B.  I have already established the vpn beteween A and C.  Do I just have to add the Site C local network to the site A-B VPN config or will I need to add static routes?

I don't have access to either B or C firewalls and will have to ask each side to make changes separately if needed.  If it would help, I believe the host at Site B is using a Cisco ASA, don't know about Site C hardware.
