My RBS20 don't have the same ports as that. Basically looks like only Ethernet OUT, not IN

Re: RBS20 Ethernet Wired Backhaul

You should have two ethernet ports on the RBS20 as see here on page 16:

These can be connected to a switch or the back of the Orbi router directly. These are bi directional ports.
