Sonicwall route traffic between hosts on X1 and X2 interfaces

Hi Guys

Hopefully someone might be able to point me in the right direction.

I am trying to setup routing between two hosts on my TZ210. OS version 5.8


I've setup the interfaces as:
X1 primary lan. IP: 192.168.0.1  .  X2 secondary lan. IP: 192.168.2.1

On X1 I have a host: 192.168.0.119  .  On X2 I have a host: 192.168.2.233
I created an address object for both and enabled ping capability on both ports (disabled firewall on both hosts locally and enabled ping there).

Next I add the following routes:
ROUTE1: SOURCE(X1-HOST -192.168.0.119) - DESTINATION(X2-HOST -192.168.2.223) - SERVICE(ANY) - GATEWAY(X1 LAN PRIMARY IP) - INTERFACE(X1) - METRIC(1)

ROUTE2: SOURCE(X2-HOST -192.168.2.223) - DESTINATION(X1-HOST -192.168.0.119) - SERVICE(ANY) - GATEWAY(X2 IP) - INTERFACE(X2) - METRIC(1)

But after adding and rebooting device I am unable to ping or communicate between hosts.
Have I missed a route somewhere or am I getting it completely wrong?

Kind Regards

Aaron

Ok I think I've figured it out. For starters X1 is WAN. X0 is LAN. Sorry for the wrong naming.

But I found with Sonicwall if you set the interface as trusted by default you can communicate between different lan IP's. I tracked the ping issue to the windows firewall! I thought i had disabled but it did not disable correctly!

the current routing setting is restricted to peer to peer communication between the given hosts. commonly it should be for two subnets, not two individual hosts. are you sure it is something you do want?

hey bbao, so do you mean then I don't need those address object and change the routes to:

ROUTE1: SOURCE(X1-SUBNET) - DESTINATION(X2-SUBNET) - SERVICE(ANY) - GATEWAY(X1 LAN PRIMARY IP) - INTERFACE(X1) - METRIC(1)

ROUTE2: SOURCE(X2-SUBNET) - DESTINATION(X1-SUBNET) - SERVICE(ANY) - GATEWAY(X2 IP) - INTERFACE(X2) - METRIC(1)

Would that work or am I still missing a route?
