Hello! I just got vpn working on my company's SonicFirewall PRO 2040 Standard and it is doing great. The user runs the SonicWall Global VPN Client and connects to the firewall. Then they can remote desktop to their office computer. Here is the snag: They must remote desktop to their office computer's static ip address because the setup won't resolve any computer names. No one can map network drives over vpn either. This is my first time messing with a firewall and, with exception to this one bug, I believe I have done a good job setting this thing up. Can anyone suggest a possible solution?
Here is a brief description of how things are set up if it helps: Our firewall is at the internal ip address of 192.168.0.1. The DNS server is a computer called DNS1 at 192.168.0.2 and it handles our local dns needs while forwarding to our internet provider for our internet dns needs. Our DHCP server is a machine named Server1 at192.168.0.3.
I have one VPN Policy named GroupVPN with with no gateway, no destinations, and a Crypto Suite of ESP 3DES HMAC SHA1 (IKE). I basically just used the defaults where possible.
So what do you think?
Thanks! Matthew Hanna
