    Hi all,


    I have been doing some studying for Juniper exams and decided to check out the vQFX vm . I have set it up on KVM, as opposed to virtuabox. I understand it is not a supported configuration but for the last week it has been helpful for labbing up exercises. I have written a post here vQFX10k on KVM if anyone has some spare KVM cpu cycles and memory and wants to give it a bash.

    Is there a trick to downloading these ? We have a company account, have QFX in the prod environment, and are a fortune 25 company, and my account won't even let me d/l the eval for a simulation test case. 


    I'm going to have to use CSR1000v's for this, and tell my managers for whatever reason, Juniper won't let me d/l them.


    in some of our sites, we have cisco 1k's so I guess maybe there is a reason we don't use Juniper there.


    And... I'm constantly getting these:


    This page isn’t working

    iam-sso.juniper.net is currently unable to handle this request.

    HTTP ERROR 503
    Are they having issues ?

    Try incognito, that usually does the trick for me. 🙂
