Here's what we have...

We have a Router handling traffic for a network of, configured as a default gateway of with the following routes:

ip route

ip route

We have a SonicWall with an OPT port configured with an IP address of that we need to receive traffic from the aforementioned router. We can ping the external address on the OPT port of the SonicWall ( from the network, but nothing on the other side of the SonicWall ( From the SonicWall, we are unable to ping any of the network.

Any ideas?

Thanx in advance.

You are using firewall as a router, correct? Sonicwall is firewall, By nature of firewall and firmware - it acts as a Firewall.

ICMP is block by default. allow telnet and try to telnet on other end Web server on port 80, You will able to do.

User Badges: I'm not sure the issue is with the SonicWall...rather with the other router. IPs from the SonicWall network can ping IPs on the other router network, but when the ping reply is sent, it goes off into never-never land. In addition, when IPs from the other router network ping IPs on the SonicWall network, they go off into never-never land directly.
