hey all just a quick one. something of an annoyance but we look after a lot of sites remotely.
Most would have the modem in bridged mode with the sonicwall looking after the pppoe connection.
So one cable from the SW plugged into the modem. Internet works all good.
My problem is how can i get to the GUI of the modem now its in bridged mode. sometimes need to reboot the modem remotely and having the gui there be handy
Address object pointing to WAN as the modem is on the SW WAN connection. and policy route pointing to the WAN port
Tried a few different options but no joy in getting it working. what am i doing wrong and is it possible?

@sohand if your modem has two ports just assign a 2nd Interface from the TZ 470 to the subnet where the modem belongs to.
If your modem comes with a single port you need to have a mini-switch inbetween. Attach X1 (your PPPoE WAN) and X2 (Modem subnet) to the switch and your modem as well. Usually I put X2 in the WAN zone as well, but don't add to the Failover & Load-Balancing :)
yeah i can give it a go next time im at it, just thought i was able to do it over the same connection.
Yeah ill try it
why do you add it to the WAN zone though X2 that is? hahaha and yeah the failover be a no no alright
