This issue has been solved. See solution.

How does SFHA for Win replication work for two server that are geographically in different locations (different cities)? Now they're connected via SAN and are at close distance (different buildings). Cannot find answer in documentation so far, so your kind advice is appreciated.

Need more elaboration for providing accurate information. In general, did you see Campus Cluster configuration or GCO configuration sections in the documents?

Thanks and Warm Regards,

WAN replication is done via TCP or UDP. IPv4 and IPv6 are both supported.

Not sure what documentation you are looking at. Information about how Volume Replicator works and how to configure it is documented in the Volume Repicator Admin Guide.

You can find documentation for your SFW version on SORT:  

Scroll down to Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability section and select 'Product guides' link for your version. You will find Volume Replicator Guides in the list. 

Link to SFW 6.0 VVR manual:

Chapter 1 (Understanding Veritas Volume Replicator) gives a good overview of how VVR works.

Hope this helps.
