I have a couple of TZ215 that I want to connect via VPN site to site.  I have to use one of the X2-X6 ports on the main site because of other configurations that are on the main LAN port.  Has anyone done this before?  If so do you have any good instructions?

You should not have a problem doing that. Use the Wizard (upper right hand corner of screen) to create the STS vpn.

I have tried that and I can get the tunnel up but I cannot ping devices on either side of the network.   I can get the sonicwall local ip's to ping but not things connected to the network on either side.

Did you create the sts vpn on the Sonicwall devices on both ends?

Did you define the subnets accessible on each side of the tunnel?

How do I define the subnets accessible on either side of the tunnel, that is probably what I am not doing right.

Well I am not sure that what you specifically told me is the answer but I removed all of my vpn connections on both sides, all address objects, routes etc and then re-added using the wizard and it seems to be working great now.  Thanks
