routing between two sonicwall NSA 2600's connected via patch cable on x2 port

Desperate to get route going between two NSA 2600's (connected via patch cable on x2 port on each). 2 different subnets, NSA 2600 A needs to be able to connect to and see devices on NSA 2600 B. Could I pay someone for an hour of your time? I can provide more details here as well. Thank you

Please prove the subnets and SonicWALL IP addresses used.



View example configurations and the SonicWALL webui and features on http://livedemo.sonicwall.com or http://ngfw-demo.com

Multiply the effectiveness of your APT Sandbox, stop unknown and zero-day attacks at the gateway. See a demo on http://apt-demo.com or http://atp.demo.com

Say SonicWALL A has X0 192.168.1.1/24
Say SonicWALL A has X2 192.168.2.1/24
Say SonicWALL B has X0 192.168.3.1/24
Say SonicWALL B has X2 192.168.2.2/24

On SonicWALL A add a static route
src = any
dst - 192.168.3.0/24
gw = 192.168.2.2
int = X2

On SonicWALL B add a static route
src = any
dst - 192.168.1.0/24
gw = 192.168.2.1
int = X2

Managing Security & Risk at the Speed of Business

Ok, this is precisely what I've tried to do.  Perhaps my configuration is wrong somewhere along the line? perhaps I created the address object incorrectly?  I will come back and post screenshots if that is helpful?

J SpoorTMECommented:
which zone is X2?

did you create proper firewall rules?

e.g. if it's DMZ zone, you will need to add DMZ to LAN firewall rules.

markgal26Author Commented:
X2 is in a trusted zone along with X0 (lan)
it is not DMZ
I believe the firewall rules are OK as well (also as everything is in trusted zone aren't those rules created or observed automatically?)

J SpoorTMECommented:
depends on settings. I would check the firewall rules just in case.

screenshots would help.

Ok,

First I'll upload "phone network" (one NSA 2600) then "data network" (the other NSA 2600)
in your example lets replace with:
phone network: 10.0.0.x / x2 interface ip: 192.168.0.2
data network: 10.0.1.x / x2 interface IP: 192.168.0.3

ideally the data network needs to see devices/servers on the phone network (other way around not necesssary)

right now each network can ping the firewall of the other network, but thats it..

phone network firewall

phone network interface

phone network objects

phone network routing

data network firewall

data network interface

J SpoorTMECommented:
the routes are wrong.
destination should be the other nsa's X0 network, not the local X2 network

I've tried a combo of everything, grasping at straws.. when I try it that way I can't ping at all.  Here is it is with the route and the corresponding address object for the destination xo network

pls do the following,
make the routes as in the last screenshot
so on the 10.0.0.x SonicWALL
src= ANY
dst = 10.0.1.x
gw = 192.168.0.3
int = X2

so on the 10.0.1.x SonicWALL
src= ANY
dst = 10.0.0.x
gw = 192.168.0.2
int = X2

on firewall settings>advanced
enable " Decrement IP TTL for forwarded traffic"

then from the 10.0.0.x network do
tracert 10.0.1.2 (or a valid ip ontha tnet)

then from the 10.0.1.x network do
tracert 10.0.0.2 (or a valid ip ontha tnet)

pls provide tracert output.

I assume the networks use the SonicWALL as default gateway?
