Bridge mode over Layer3
« on: May 09, 2019, 10:29:40 PM »

we have the following design
Client ==>wanos(bridge mode)==>router==>router==>wanos(bridge mode)==>>server                                                   
when we setup this connection all traffic pass without optimization , and peer stuck in idle state

but when we connect wanos back to back
Client ==>wanos(bridge mode)==>wanos(bridge mode)==>>server
traffic is optimized normally
we use version 4.2.7
is there additional configuration we need to add to make bridge mode work over layer3 ?

The two setups are exactly the same so normally no additional configuration would be needed.

There is an exception: When the firewall strips or overwrites the TCP Option 76. There is more information on this at
