ok here is the enviroment

sonicwall tz-170 with enhanced os

Windows 2008r2 server with DCHP server giving out leases

I setup the sonicwall globalVPN i believe correctly... I cannot seem to connect.... IT passes the first 2 sets and logs in
It then gets stuck at getting an IP address....

I've tried over hotspot and get the same response... so i dont think its internal

The error is "failed to renew the IP address for the virtual interface"

However if i go to the sonicwall vpn connection in the Network connections and assign it a IP address and subnet it works fine.... If i put the gateway of the firewall in it doesnt work

I'm completely stumped...any help will be greatly appreciated
