WAN license

I'm trying to connect a CNT ultranet edge storage router to my Brocade 24000. I'm hardzoning the router to a host in the fabric. This router will handle replication from my site to a remote site several hundred miles away. I'm getting an error in my event logs stating that there is no WAN license. Do I actually need a WAN license for the Brocade or am I doing something wrong?

Re: WAN license

Figured out this one with the help of Brocade. The CNT will report as an E port. It's necessary to configure the ports connected to the router as ISL_R_Ready. There are also some config perameters that need to be set such as buffer credits (7) and others.
