I have an awkward one . seems to be as quick...

this is a point to point from a carrier with no IP info JUST a ethernet to ethernet

i curently have 2 subnets at both sites already programmed (taking out adtrans installing sonicwalls)


SITE A ethernet (no ip) TZ100-A X2 port <-------------> SITE B ethernet (no ip) TZ100-B X2 port

X1 WAN configured Primary internet for both sites
X0 LAN 192.168.2.x
X2 Point to point Ethernet handoff (could i put IP ? )

X0 LAN 192.168.1.x
X2 LAN Point to point Ethernet handoff. (could i put IP ?)

Route to internet to SITEA over the point to point

never dealt with handoff ethernet with no ip kind of threw me in a loop

    I would guess one of 2 things-
    It's a Bridge so no IP needed, just act like it's a switch port linked to another switch.  If that is the case you can't have another subnet if your routers are creating it.  In other words - Site A has it's LAN side and subnet.  It's WAN port has another subnet that the WAN of the Site B router is also on and they point to each other as gateways for your subnets.  Site B then can have it's own subnet like you described.
    It really is a routed path but then they would have to give you the IP of the service routers to act as a gateway.

    Sorry, meant to say you CAN have another subnet if your routers create it.
