You might be able to connect them using periodic boundary conditions.

I think you just need the Domain Interface instead of any boundary condition.

Good point - it depends on what you are trying to do. Can you describe what you are trying to do with this inlet/outlet more? Can you post a picture?

I think, if you are using interface for domains, you can use only one fluid type, or am I wrong?

Yeah, I was actually just making the problem more complicated than it needed to be. But a domain interface definitely works best I think.

Thanks for your help guys.
