SonicWall TZ100 X2 port to hardware VPN

Hi Guys, I'm trying to get my head around this.

I have a TZ100 with X1 connected to a bonded broadband setup. this works fine.

I want to connect a vpn box to X2. The local lan is the vpn hardware is and the local lan at the far end is

I can create a VPN from the hardware on X2 and from the far end can ping the TX100 X2 port what would I need to do to enable traffic to flow from the far end into the local lan.

so traffic from can see  

I know the Sonic Wall does Lan to Lan vpn. but the broadband band system doesn't like it.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Phoenix_Technology,

Why aren't you using the VPN within the SonicWALL itself...it's very solid and dynamic! Furthermore, this would be a best practice even if you are connecting to another non-branded SonicWALL such as Cisco or Watchguard, etc.

If you are dead set on this non-typical setup the easiest way to achieve this is through the Public Server Wizard located at the top right named Wizards of the UI once you login in to the SonicWALL.

Once you click on the Wizards link it will pull up the Configuration Wizard dialogue box. Select Public Server Wizard & click Next. On the next screen select Other... next to Server Type. Under Services you can either create your own by selecting Create New Service... or select the appropriate one from the drop down (Any is also available) then click Next. Follow the other onscreen prompts accordingly. Lastly you will use PortShielding to assign the Interface to X2.

Make sense?
