trying to get some clients to use sonicwall instead of isa server

Hello,

In my network I currently use ISA server 2006 (internal IP 10.0.1.1) with static external IP and a combination of DHCP users and static ip users. We recently acquired sonicwall 250 NSA (Internal IP 10.0.1.18) and what Im trying to do is to start routing some clients using sonicwall (which is using an static external ip address, and has its internal DHCP turned off since we already have a DHCP in place internally). right now im using a test computer (10.0.1.50) with static IP address and im trying to get it to use sonicwall by changing the gateway from 10.0.1.1 to 10.0.1.18 which seems to work, however when I look at tracert I see that it is still using ISA server for some reason. Also if I google whats my ip I will get the external ISA server IP.  Any thoughts on how I can get that client to use Sonicwall??

Thanks!

Without a specific route on that PC, traffic to any other subnet SHOULD go out via it's gateway address, just like you configured it.
It's possible there is also some routing rule configured improperly on the sonicwall, to redirect traffic through the old gateway. (Perhaps caused/leftover by/from changing configurations. Maybe start over with the sonicwall config by resetting to factory defaults?)
I assume you tried this, but sonicwall has some tests it can perform directly: you can use these to confirm the sonicwall's internet connectivity and routes.

Does the same issue occur for any other computer who's gateway you change?

its the 3rd time I reset the config on sonicwall :(. I have tried on several computers even a server and no single computer has been able to navigate using sonicwall. however if I disconnect the sonicwall appliance from the internal network and plug a computer directly into it I'm able to navigate (turning DHCP on  in sonicwall  of course)

any thoughts?

" if I disconnect the sonicwall appliance from the internal network and plug a computer directly into it I'm able to navigate "

I guess that was the clue that did it for you? Smart.

thanks for points :)
