FCIP through RecoverPoint

This is not my area of expertise, so I apologize in advance for the basic question.  I do need advice though.  I have a Cisco 9222i which will be the source of an FCIP tunnel which will cross the WAN to another Cisco 9222i.  It basically looks like this...CISCO 9222I <----> RP <----> NEXUS <------WAN----->NEXUS<----RP----> Do the RecoverPoints allow for FCIP tunnels to pass through them - maybe it's the norm, I don't know. Any advice is helpful.

RP appliances do not route traffic (or allow FCIP tunnels to pass) so your implementation needs to be different from what you have described above. RP's (which are FC attached) send data to be replicated over TCP/IP. Refer to RecoverPoint  installation guides on PowerLink for example deployment scenarios.

If you have IP connectivity between your two locations there is no need to do FCIP as it relates to RecoverPoint. RP does the conversion for you, FC to IP, IP to FC, for async. If Sync is required then it has to take place over FC. Do you have a sync or async requirement?
