SonicWall traffic routing through VPN
Posted on 2012-09-20
Here's the situation: At our remote retail locations we want to run prepaid phone cards through the point of sale (POS) register over their WAN connection for acceptance and authorization. The software we have to use allows me to specify a port and an IP address to route to Prepaid card authorizer "STARBASE". The connection to "STARBASE" must be via P2P circuit or VPN, and we won't have a P2P to them, just a single VPN. "STARBASE" will only allow one VPN connection from a multi-store outlet chain. Each store is connected to the central corporate office Sonicwall NSA via VPN connections to their Sonicwall TZ 2xx devices. What I want to do is take TCP traffic from this retail zone using this specific port number at the store and route it through the corporate office Sonicwall to "STARBASE", and then return the authorization. So in essence the POS software can connect to 62.x.x.x via their VPN to our corporate office and our VPN to "STARBASE". I'm looking suggestions on how to best accomplish this. More background: each store has a dedicated internet access via cable or other broadband, as does the corporate office. Our "WAN" is created by the VPN connections from the stores to the Corporate office via the Sonicwall devices. The Sonicwall is only device at the location capable of routing traffic. Thanks!
