Cisco SG500X RoaS w/ Sonicwall

Hey Everyone, I'm pretty new to working with Cisco equipment and am in need of some assistance. I'm in the process of configuring a pair of SG500 switches in a stack with a Sonicwall TZ205, basically in a Router-On-A-Stick type configuration. First (and preferred) attempt was InterVLAN routing configuration, but it was not working out and we really need to get this project rolling, so it was decided to switch to this configuration because it SHOULD be much easier to setup.

The configuration is pretty simple, it'll be a VLAN10 (which i've made the native VLAN) and VLAN12 (Voice for Cisco IP Phones) and Sonicwall as Gateway.

I think the only problem I'm having is the Trunk to the Sonicwall...i'm not able to communicate out from admin computer, or even from the SG500.

**I'm not sure why but Interface 23 & 24 are not shown, they are Trunk uplinks to the Sonicwall.

**Web UI shows Interfaces 23 & 24 as:

 24GE24Trunk10Admit AllEnabled


Can someone help me understand what exactly is going on here?

You really should set the

You really should set the SG500 to layer 3 mode and let it be the default gateway for each of your networks.

The switch will route faster then then SonicWALL.

In this scenario, in order to allow the SonicWALL to pass traffic for the different networks, you need to create a routing rule.

Please refer to the attachments.

Here, we create a rule to allow the different networks to be routed back into the LAN.
