Trouble setting up a VPN tunnel with OSPF between Sonicwall devices.

I am attempting to configure a pair of SonicWALL UTM devices, to be VPNed together, and exchange routes using OSPF.

I am using this as a guide: https://support.software.dell.com/kb/sw8442

The trouble I have, is that on one of the firewalls, I don't have the "Allow Advanced Routing" checkbox, which is required. The VPN is up OK, but there is no interface to bind OSPF too.

Any ideas why I don't have this option on one device?

The end that is configurable as expected is a TZ210, running SonicOS Enhanced 5.9.1.1-39o

The end which has no "Allow Advanced Routing" is a TZ215, running SonicOS Enhanced 5.9.1.0-22o


GOOD END (note highlight)
Good VPN
BAD END
Evil VPN

I updated the firmware on the "bad" device to 5.9.1.1-39o and recreated the VPN tunnel. No difference.

Under Network > Routing, ensure you have activated the Advanced Routing Mode and then configure OSPF for both VPN Tunnel Interface on both devices.
