Setting up Site-to-Site VPN with SonicWall, Cisco ASA - Missing ACL Encryption and NAT

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to configure a site-to-site VPN tunnel between a SonicWall firewall, a Cisco ASA firewall, I'm following the configuration guides, but I'm unable to find options for:

  • ACL Encryption: I need to configure encryption for the Access Control Lists (ACLs) used in the VPN tunnel.
  • Local NAT: I want to enable Network Address Translation (NAT) for traffic originating from the LAN behind the firewall.

These options seem to be missing from the firewall interfaces I'm using. Can anyone advise on how to achieve these configurations, or if there are alternative approaches on these firewalls?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Configuration guides only help so much. Which device are you most comfortable with?

    Determine the Phase 1 configuration of the 'comfortable' device. Match that on the other device.

    Repeat for Phase 2.
