I cannot open an SFTP session or SSH to the fxp0.0 interface. I can ping it. I looked in the logs and I don't see that it is being blocked. Is there something I am missing?
without more details it is impossible to answer this questions. Please paste the following config to this thread:
show configuration interfaces fxp0
show configuration system services ssh
show configuration interfaces lo0
If there is any firewall filter attached to lo0, then paste this filter as well.
Additionally, please inform about the exact device and JUNOS release.
Turned out to be a filter on the Loopback.
