Suggestions on Monitoring Dual WAN on Sonicwall?



Hey Everyone,

I'm looking at monitoring some of my client's WAN connections from our main probe here at my office. While I do have a remote probe at their office, I was planning on running simple ping tests to their main firewall. A couple of these clients have Dual WAN Failover setup on Sonicwalls. However, when I setup the ping tests, the second test is always dropped by the Sonicwall as an IP spoof.

Any suggestions on how I can still monitor each connection without having it be detected as an IP spoof?

if you have remote probes at these offices/remote locations, why not use the QoS-Sensors and get a few more details about the 'quality' of the connection?

best regards.
