How to bridge interfaces for WAN link.

I am looking for a way how to group a few interfaces into one subnet, so these ports are isolated and act as a switch so to speak.

Let say ports 0 to 3 are the WAN group and ports 4 to 7 are in the LAN group.

If I connect the internet with multiple public IPs to port 0, I would like to be able to connect my laptop to ports 1,2, or 3 and be able to access the internet directly without the NAT.

This is what I mean https://ibb.co/RYrJCDL

It's super easy to configure this kind of functionality on the Mikrotik router but can't figure out how to do it on Watchguard.

    The limitation seems to be that the "bridge" setup which is what you're after can be defined in the Trusted, Optional or Custom zone type but not External, since this is probably not that common (sounds like a feature request if it is something you do need).

    If your external interface requires a VLAN tag, then potentially you can have more than one physical interface applied to the same VLAN, but you can't have a VLAN of type External and also untagged (there's a feature request for this [FBX-6538] that is open).
