Within this server,there will be a lot of servers (zones) distributed among
four networks. Each network have his set of servers and a firewall which is
Now to enable communications between these networks, i have to create a

So i want to know that, if it is possible to connect a VNIC of each
firewall to a VNIC of tge router?or should i create an etherstub?
Hop that it's more comprehensible!!
