    I have tried different dial string and chap authentication to n/a. I am aslo unable to find any debug commands to check logs. Any suggestions on config changes and/or logs to check? Thank you.

    Seems to be stuck in the connecting state.  Are you sure the sim is activated for the device id on the Verizon network?

    Sometimes I've needed to call in when moving sim between hardware to have them bless the connection.

    Thank you. I changed APN after calling verizon and it's connected after reboot. For a future, is there a log that can help in torubleshooting LTE connection?

    Not sure where that logs, I generally use the same command you not above.  The main log is messages and you can use the ? to see all the files currently on the  device.


    show log messages

    show log ?

    HI guys, 


    Does anyone knows a way, to access the router remotely on the LTE IP address?


    I've tried few diffrent ways, but I can't work it out.

    Some LTE networks don't allow inbound initiated connections so if you have all the normal SRX configuration in place and it is not working you might want to check with your carrier.

    Some don't allow it at all.

    Some have an option to purchase static ip that will allow it.
