Force traffic over SonicWall VPN

MISquared asked
Last Modified: 2016-06-14
We have two sites connected via a VPN between two firewalls. The remote site uses a LAN ip scheme of The local LAN uses and has a SonicWall TZ 205. The VPN is up and running, and a tech at the remote site can use RDP over the VPN to control one of our local workstations; however, software installed on the local workstation, which needs to communicate with a server on the remote site does not have its traffic routed correctly. When we ping or trace traffic to, for example, it goes to a host in Germany instead of over the VPN.

I thought that, with the VPN setup, all traffic going to 89.0.0.x would default to going over the VPN. Anyone know what I'm missing. I don't want all of our internet traffic going over the VPN, just traffic to 89.0.0.x.
