    Hey guys!

    This week I've got a DVR for my restaurant in a mall and in order to watch the DVR from the outside you must log into the mall VPN. The thing is that when I click "connect" on the VPN, I cant navigate on the internet. I could solve this by going on advanced options on the TCP/IP Configuration on the VPN properties and unchecked the "Use the default gateway on remote network" and I could get into the VPN and still have internet connection, the thing is that if disable that option I cant watch the cameras, and if I let it checked I can watch them.

    Is there anyway that I can set some kinda of priority or anything else that could let me watch the cameras AND navigate on the internet??? :banghead:

    Thanks a lot for your help guys! :toast:

    VPN priority over LAN

    RE: [sonicwall] Re: Giving LAN > VPN Priority Over LAN > WAN Traffic

    Interesting. I just gave the Enhanced 3.0 manual a read because this
    sounds like a weird way to do things... Doesn't make a lot of sense.

    p. 216 of the manual (237 of the pdf) says:
    If you create an access rule for outbound mail traffic (such as SMTP)
    and enable bandwidth management with the following parameters:
    . Guaranteed bandwidth of 20 percent
    . Maximum bandwidth of 40 percent
    . Priority of 0 (zero)

    The outbound SMTP traffic is guaranteed 20 percent of available
    bandwidth available to it and can get
    as much as 40 percent of available bandwidth. If this is the only access
    rule using bandwidth
    management, it has priority over all other access rules on the SonicWALL
    security appliance. Other
    access rules use the remaining bandwidth (minus 20 percent of bandwidth,
    or greater than minus 20
    percent and less than minus 40 percent of bandwidth).

    Note: Access rules using bandwidth management have a higher priority
    than access rules not using
    bandwidth management. Access rules without bandwidth management are
    given lowest priority.
    From what I read, "it has priority over all other access rules on the
    Sonicwall" means that it shouldn't be on a Zone to Zone basis, but per
    interface (as that is where you establish the total bandwidth amount
    anyhow). It then goes on to say "Access rules without bandwidth
    management are given lowest priority".

    Perhaps what you need is the change the priority of the IPSec traffic
    going from the LAN to the WAN. That should prioritize it over general

    I got useful tutorial from this address. hope it helps you too. http://www.bestvpnservice.com/tutorial.php
