What does not work if you do not activate a new appliance?
First off. I understand the reasoning behind activating a box... Warranty, software upgrades, security ect... I manage a few WG devices currently.
One thing I never really knew the answer or can find it easily is :
What does not work if you dont activate a new box?
Scenario: T20 Device.
Unit will be deployed out in a location not easily accessable. Without external WAN, no internet. Network devices need to talk to eachother locally only, for now. In the future we possibly will put a Cellular LTE modem out there for connection at which point I will then activate the device. We basically need a dumb switch at this point. But wish to use the T20 as the switch so we dont have to re-install equipment in this special environment.
Im attempting to bridge ETH1-4 adding each interface to the trusted bridge, nothing seems to ping across the bridge. I have used this feature before without problems. Albit on activated devices.
Would this be a limitation on not activating the device?
