Sorry no.  That is correct the MX250 and 450 only have SFP+ WAN1/WAN2 interfaces for maximum flexibility of 1/10G copper or fiber handoffs and they require an SFP transceiver.  And the 0.0.0.0/0 default WAN route will always be out a WAN port.  You can call into Support to see if there is a back-end option they can enable to allow you to leverage a LAN port on your MX250 as a WAN port, but I'm not aware of such an option.  Even if there was an option for such a thing, it wouldn't be a supported configuration.

Kind of a big deal

And, it'd have to be online and connected to the Cloud before support could make this change 😉

 

 

Correct, and there's nothing on the local status/config page to enable this.  @lindo does this help?  Possible to just get an SFP for WAN1?
