Sonocwall VPN on a Sonicwall Pro230 - no internet access for the VPN clients?

Post by Kent Kirke » Fri, 16 Jan 2004 04:33:44


Hi,
The VPN clients connect to the LAN, and the connection is stable.
But, the VPN clients cannot browse the Internet?

The VPN clients gets a IP address from our DHCP server on the LAN, there are
no problems reaching all resources on the LAN, but the Internet is nor
reachable, not even ping.

A trace route tells me that it all stops on the central router
(192.168.0.1).

The central router is using the Sonicwall to reach the Internet

I have attached a picture of the setup, hope that it makes it more clear :-)

If you have any suggestions, please let med know.

Thanks and best regards
Kent Kirkegaard

Seems, you configured your policy like this. What client-softwaer do you
use? I suppose the SonicWall client


Applied any filters? Why do you use DHCP? Configured the network adapter
correctly (inside the SonicWall client)


This should not happen, as far as you didn't explicitly configure your
client-policy to do so.


ACK


Didn't see any picture, 'cause the nntp-server cuts off any binaries. Maybe
you want to try ASCII-art?


I normally only encrypt the traffic to the internal network through the
security gateway and let the other traffic (mail, news, http) go the normal
way to the internet.

Hi,
And thanks for your comments....





I use the "standard" Sonicwall VPN client. Not much there to configure
are
No, I have not applied any filters. I use DHCP because it's the best way to
handle IP addresses (for me anyway).

I have not (I don't think so) configured it to stop at our central router.
The central router (192.168.0.1 know all our LAN, and the way to the
Internet - which is reached trough the Sonicwall)

:-)
Maybe

Yes I know :-(
normal

All I want to encrypt is the connection between the Sonicwall and the
Client...

Now I use another firewall/router to reach the Internet (connectted to the
same Internet connection as the Sonicwall), and it works. I just dont know
what different it makes?
