    Posted 07-09-2019 08:32

    I have another juniper SRX that is setup to factory reset and i am rtying to get to the JWEB login page so i can configure everything from there as i am more comfortable with jweb

     

    Can someone assist in how to connec to this?

    I have the serial console cable and am able to modify configurations BUT the router ip is 192.168.1.1

     

    so how do i connect to it via that ip from a laptop?

    if i give the laptop stati network of 192.168.1.0/24 and gateway is 192.168.1.1

    so how do i connect to jweb or i have to assign the router on the srx to a different address than 192.168.1.1

     

    i know this is a basic stuffs but spending too much time than i should on it and wanted to get some help

     

    thanks

    Hi junipersrx240,

     

    You can assign any IP in 192.168.1.0/24 subnet (other than 192.168.1.1) to the laptop and use 192.168.1.1 on the browser to connect to the SRX.

     

    Here is a quick reference: https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/release-independent/junos/topics/task/configuration/services-gateway-srx240-configuring-with-jweb.html

     

    Also find a video here if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7O0cMHZ2Pc

    Thanks to EVERYONE that replied to help

    Apparently my wifi network also uses same 192.168.1.0/24 network so even after disabling the wifi network...seems my laptop cached the entry for the 192.168.1.1 gateway because my wifi router is also same ip

    So i started firefox a different browser than i use, then jweb came up!!!

     

    So i was confused too as am like i did everything right but JWEB not coming

    Your answers made me be relentless this time and i also tried incognito for Chrome and now am all set

     

    Thanks to ALL again!!!

    which model you are using? Is it possible to share the configuration?

    You can change the ip address of the interface from CLI like below :

    delete interfaces <interface name> unit 0 family inet address 192.168.1.1/24

    set interfaces <interface name> unit 0 family inet address 10.10.10.10/24

     

    Enabling J-web:

    set system services web-management http interface <interface name>

    set system services web-management https system-generated-certificate interface <interface-name>

     

    If the interface is not fxp0 interface and revenue interface (like ge-0/0/0) used for management , that interface should be configured to a zone and http/https should be enabled in host-inbound-traffic.

    Eg:-

    set security zones security-zone TRUST host-inbound-traffic system-services http
    set security zones security-zone TRUST host-inbound-traffic system-services https
    set security zones security-zone TRUST interfaces ge-0/0/0.0

    Hello JuniperSRX240,

     

    If you are on a branch SRX device , connect you LAPTOP to any port on the SRX except the first port (ge-0/0/0).

     

    Configure your LAPTOP to look for DHCP provided by SRX.

     

    Once your laptop gets an IP in the subnet 192.168.1.0/24 , you should be able to access https://192.168.1.1

     

    Thanks!
