We can deliver an appliance with 2 SFP ports where the customer can put the SFP adapters and cables locally.
For the firewall only mode it will run in Bridge mode support at the moment since it is tuned for UTM usage.
With the bridge is running, you cannot create zones on each network card, because what crosses the bridge may come from outside or inside.
So you can't create rules on a network card and this is a restriction that you have to take into account.
Only 2 netports can be used for incoming and outgoing and a third port is for DMZ.
We need to make sure this meet their requirements.
So they can start by using the normal netports that are 1 gig and upgrade to the SFP later one when their load increases.
Please confirm the requirements of the firewall they need that the Protector fit it 100%.
The protector runs in bridge mode where they put the router in port A and the local lan in port B.
They can also configure a DMZ zone in port C.
In the firewall menu it is possible to set profiles.
Here we have a guide that explains more.
