Want to setup a VPN connection so I can connect remotely to a website that lives on our network.  

Did some research and SSL VPN can help me achieve this but I'm doing something wrong as I can not connect to network.  Keep getting a server not reachable error.  

This is what I followed: https://support.software.dell.com/kb/sw6461

I have SonicWall setup where X0 is LAN and X1 is WAN, X2 is another voip WAN and X3 is voip LAN.  Only need to connect to X0 lan.

The first question i would ask is, can you access this website when you are NOT in the office and NOT vpn'd in? Or is this an internal website only?

If it's internal only, do you have split tunnel active? If you do this is causing the issue. You're telling your vpn client that all http traffic should go out the local internet and not route to the office.

If split tunnel is not on then you have a route that is missing that would allow the wan vpn to access the local http sites.

let me know.

Oh, ok. So the server not reachable error is when you initially tried to connect your SSL VPN client. Gotcha...

What software version are you running on the 215?
