Open port through Tunel Interface (SonicWall)


I wonder if it's possible that some ports are blocked between a VPN (Tunnel Interface).

Here is my problem:
We have 10 access points Adtran Bluesocket BSAP-1925.
9 of them are connected to our local network (headquarters). Everything works perfectly.
We also have a remote site with one access point. There is a VPN (Tunnel Interface) between the 2 sites.
At the remote site we have a domain controller, file server and a backup server, we have no problem.
However, the access point at the remote site is not able to connect to the management server, where all the other
Access points are connected.

When the access point is at the main site, it is able to connect to the management server.
I also have in my possession the ports used by the management server and the access point to communicate together.
Is it possible that these ports are blocked in the VPN connection?
The management server is a Bluesocket vWlan V2_3_0_09.
Thank you

Hi Janio Andre Gutierrez Gutierrez,

It is possible that the correct routes are not in the VPN tunnel. The routes/subnets need to match where the devices are located.

Let me know how it goes!

Hi Diverseit,

The routes/subnets objects have to be on the "Main" SonicWall (Headquarters) ?
