hello, we have two sonicwalls TZ400 (main site) and TZ100 and wishing to do site-to-site.

Both sites have green lights up. Traffic is ok (ping/files) from one site to main site. No traffic at all from main site to subsite.

Both sites have been using the site-to-site vpn Wizard. Address group object recreated. VPN also recreated.

I am running out of ideas. Please help.

thanks, Clifford

On side firewall probably. Double check and if you have access to both sided compare firewall settings.
It looks like File sharing is enable only one way.
