Route LAN IP(s) to another LAN IP on the same Subnet

I have a Program that is sending out two IP (192.168.1.2 and .35) that need to go to the same device. (I know stupid, but I cannot access the program to fix this)

I do have control over the receiving device (a luxul switch) and can set it to any IP - 192.168.1.2 or 35 or any other IP. I can also isolate the luxul switch on to a specific port on the sonic wall if that would help

I have tried to do a LAN to LAN route, but have miserably.

The SW is a TZ400 running Adv OS 6.2.3.1-19n

Any suggestions on how to accomplish this would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

John

    Hi @FRANKE,

    This should work.

    No need of any manual routes. Routes will be auto-configured by the SonicWall when you configure the X0 and X5 interfaces with respective IP subnets. X0 and X5 can be on same zone or you can have X5 on a different zone. Only change required on the SonicWall is, please ensure X0 zone (LAN) to X5 zone and vice versa access rules are allowed.

    Please reply if you have any doubts or questions.

  • Hi @FRANKE,

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    Could you please point out the source and destination IP addresses in your scenario with the subnet mask? Also please let me know the SonicWall's physical port to which the sources and destination addresses are bounded to?

    I currently have all devices connected thru a CISCO Switch them all on X0.

    I have tried the following:

    1) Routing 192.168.1.35 traffic to 192.168.1.2 (The Luxul Switch) with Subnet of 222.255.255.0

    2) Routing 192.168.1.35 and .2 traffic to 192.168.2.1 (The Luxul Switch) with Subnet of 222.255.0.0

    I currently have all devices connected thru a CISCO Switch on port X0.

    I have tried the following:

    1) Routing 192.168.1.2 traffic to 192.168.1.35 (The Luxul Switch) with Subnet of SW LAN 222.255.255.0

    2) Routing 192.168.1.2 traffic to 192.168.2.1 (The Luxul Switch) with Subnet of SW LAN 222.255.0.0

    Both failed to ping the Luxul Switch

    Below is the configuration for Attempt 2

     CLESTRON POWER IP 192.168.1.2 SUBNET 255.255.255.255

    LUXUL SWITCH 192.168.2.1 SUBNET 255.255.255.255

  • Hi @FRANKE,

    Passing traffic from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.35 (The Luxul Switch) with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.2.1 (The Luxul Switch) with subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 will not happen via SonicWall since the IPs are part of the same subnet. The switch is going to handle the traffic and SonicWall not necessarily receive the traffic between these IP addresses.

    Please let me know if you have clarification.

    Thanks for response. Stupid on my part about subnets. Will the following work?

    1) Configure X0 192.168.1.250 with Subnet 255.255.255.0

    2) Configure X5 192.168.2.250 with Subnet 255.255.255.0

    ( Do I need to create a New Zone for the 192.168.2.XXX ?)

    Plug in the Luxul Switch into Port X5 with Luxul Switch IP 192.168.2.1 Subnet 255.255.255.0


    Route 192.168.1.2 and .35 traffic to 192.168.2.1

    CLESTRON POWER IP 192.168.1.2 SUBNET 255.255.255.255

    CLESTRON VIDEO IP 192.168.1.35 SUBNET 255.255.255.255

    LUXUL SWITCH 192.168.2.1 SUBNET 255.255.255.255

    Thanks
