SonicWALL TZ400 Access Single X0 Interface IP from Many X3 Interface IP’s

I want to be able to access X0 (LAN) IP 192.168.1.51 from X3 (LAN2) 172.16.1.0/24

1.      X0 (LAN) and X3 (LAN2) are trusted interfaces and have corresponding Any/Any access to each other as separate firewall rules (automatically created by SonicWALL when trusted is enabled).
2.      I created address object AO_X0_IP for 192.168.1.51 and a corresponding address object AO_X3_IP to translate to 172.16.1.51
3.      I then created address object AO_X3_RNG for 172.16.1.0/24 for full range of subnet
4.      I then created and enabled the following NAT policy
        a.      Original Source: AO_X3_RNG
        b.      Translated Source: Original
        c.      Original Destination: AO_X3_IP
        d.      Translated Destination: AO_X0_IP
        e.      Original Service: Any
        f.      Translated Service: Original
        g.      Inbound Interface: Any
        h.      Outbound Interface: Any

This all seems correct, but yet I cannot access, or even ping, X0 (LAN) IP 192.168.1.51 from X3 (LAN2) 172.16.1.0/24.   That is, when I'm on the X3 subnet and I ping 172.16.1.51 it should translate to 192.168.1.51 on X0 and reply back, but no joy.  Can anyone help me solve this problem?  Thank you.

The translation actually sounds like an unnecessary layer of headaches. I would delete it, go to the access rules, and create a LAN > LAN rule that allows traffic from X3 to X0.

Is there a reason why you were trying to do NAT for this particular issue?

I want to separate the two LAN's so that there is no traffic between them except for hitting that single IP address.   Your suggestion did not work.

I was mistaken, my first NAT did work, it was just PING wouldn't work.  I did change the Original Source to X3 Subnet instead of the custom address object of the full ip range since it was redundant.  Thank you for your help.

Original Source: X3 Subnet
Translated Source: Original
Original Destination: AO_X3_IP
Translated Destination: AO_X0_IP
Original Service: Any
Translated Service: Original
Inbound Interface: Any
Outbound Interface: Any

I did not know that PING did not work across the interfaces.
