Not Connected? Make sure you're connected to the internet. Make sure you're not attempting to connect from the same network the SonicWALL is on (i.e., on the clinic's network). VPN is designed to create a connection to the clinic network that is as secure as if you were using a computer in the clinic. Not in the office? Use VPN.
