On your domain controller: ipconfig /flushdns.
Do you have a rule in place that allow lan to wan traffic?  Is it enabled?

*I am not familiar with that firewall*

in general you need two rules: incoming and outgoing. "lan to wan any" is one, what is the other?

something like "wan to lan ..."

how about wan to lan any?  Put that in place and verify the firewall is the problem.

what is your routing table looks like on that firewall?

do you have a router in front of firewall? does it have correct default route?

site to site vpn is going to use IP not DNS so we at least now that your internet is up. the fact that you can ping www.google.com says DNS is resolving properly.

go to system > diagnostics of your sonicwall and select Ping from the drop down. choose 4.2.2.2 first. if that pings properly, ping www.google.com. if it pings successfully, then ping www.ibm.com or whatever. if it pings successfully, then your sonicwall is resolving DNS properly.

if you aren't able to ping those devices properly from a workstation then you've got an internal DNS resolution issue. how are your internal hosts resolving DNS? is it from a central server? if you replace the DNS server IP of one of your workstations with 4.2.2.2, is it able to get to internet hosts by name?

also, when you added the WAN > LAN Any on your firewall, you opened up your firewall to the internet. you want to delete that firewall rule or change it immediately!

ok...change the DNS server IP of one of your workstations to use 4.2.2.2 and try to get to the internet. can you ping 4.2.2.2 from one of your workstations behind the tz100?

ok...it seems like a routing issue. compare the IP address of the LAN interface of your tz100 to the gateway IP of the workstation that is unable to ping 4.2.2.2? is there a difference? what's handling IP assignments, an internal Windows DHCP server or the sonicwall?
