cannot see file shares on certain servers
Posted on 2014-11-17
here's my configuration;
site to site vpn between two sonicwall tz devices
all traffic is allowed between lan and vpn and vice versa in both directions on both devices
servers are on 192.168.0.0 /24 subnet at main building
workstations are on 172.16.32.0 /24 subnet at remote building
problem is, i can access file shares on all servers except a couple that i know of. connections to 445 from remote office to main office on these servers times out. telnet to 445 cannot connect (from 172.16.32) . i can connect to 445 to these servers without issues from the main office subnet (192.168.0)
i can connect to port 53 on the problem servers without problems from remote office to main office.
i'm at a loss here. 445 if open on the server and can be accessed from the local subnet but not from the remote subnet. however 53 is open (it is a dns server) and i can telnet (on 53) and nslookup to the server from the remote subnet to the local subnet. from what i see and know, firewall is not an issue. i've tried adding a route 172.16.32.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.109 (sonic wall gateway) on the problem server but that did not make any difference.
thanks in advance.
