Sonicwall NCS240

Hi guys,

Hoping someone can enlighten me with his or her wisdom.
Have two Sonicwall NSA 240 connecting two sites via VPN and all is working fine. Recently we installed a fiber to connect the two sites, one end of the fiber is connected to the LAN at Site-A and the other is connected to a switch at site-B, if I take a computer and plug-it in the switch at Site-B I get an IP from Site-A.

The question is, can a cable be connected to port X4 (my next available port) on the Sonicwall at Site-B from the switch coming from site-A and configure the Sonicwall to allow access either network from either site and eliminate the VPN.

If so, can someone tell me how or guide me in the right direction?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
