Site-Site VPN between Sonicwall and PFSense
I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post this in.
I have 2 offices that I am trying to connect. Office A is using a PFSense 2.0 while Office B is using a Dell Sonicwall NSA220. These offices are located in 2 different continents and as such will need to use their own isp for routing internet traffic, I just want to create a VPN tunnel for just data that needs to be shared but their internet should still be routed through their own ISP.
That should work. You just need 1 end (the server) to have either a static public IP or to use dynamic DNS to set a public DNS name to point to its current dynamic public IP. Then the client can connect to that name (or known static public IP).
I saw that I had commented on this thread a while ago:
But the OP never finally replied to say he had it working - but he had the link up.
I have tried setting it up using this link http://zee.linxsol.com/system-administration/pfsense-2-site-to-site-vpn-with-dell-sonicwall-nsa-3500.html
Office A can access Office B but Office B cannot access Office A
There must be routes in both directions for A to access B (because B has to route the replies back).
What rules are on OpenVPN at office A - maybe incoming connections from office B are being blocked as they arrive at router A?
Looks like we're both answering the same question the same way in two different damn threads.
Ramotalana, when you setup the tunnel it will only route traffic that you tell it to route… and it will only allow the traffic that your firewall rules tell it to allow... i.e. only traffic destined for the tunnel will be routed over the tunnel. Internet traffic along with everything else will follow the routing table on both ends.
