Sonicwall route tables
My question isn't specific so Sonicwall but I hoped the firewall pros here could offer insight. Our internal lan is let's say for example 10.44.0.0/24 subnets so 10.44.1.0, 10.44.2.0 etc. The LAN interface on sonicwall has been configured as 10.44.0.2/29. This address is configured as the gateway on our core router. There was then a custom route added in sonicwall for this network with a /16 mask and the gateway is our core routers IP. Even more confusing is on the core router side, the route is configured with the sonicwall as it's default gateway but the 10.44.0.0 network is configured as /30. Can anyone offer insight is why this would have been done? I only discovered the oddity while trying to setup management interfaces(another post) and discovered that we only have two available Ips between the core and sonicwall.
