Remotely Accessing a Device CLI

 

You can use the Devices page to remotely access the CLI of a CPE device and run show operational commands.

Note

As an OpCo administrator, you can remotely access a device CLI only if you have the tenant administrator role assigned to you.

As a tenant administrator, you can remotely access the device CLI from the Devices page on the Customer Portal.

To access this page:

  1. Select Resources > Devices.

    The Devices page appears.

  2. Select a device from the Devices List.Note

    You can only select a device whose operational status is marked Up.

  3. Click More > Remote Console.

    The Remote Console for Device-Name page appears.

    Note

    For dual SRX Series devices, the Remote Console option is enabled only at the cluster level and disabled at the member level.

    For dual NFX250 devices, the Remote Console option is enabled at the individual member level and disabled at the cluster level.

  4. Select one of the following options:
    • Read only access (default option)—Allows you to automatically log in to the device through the Remote Terminal browser window, without entering a username and password. If the connection is established successfully, the operational mode CLI prompt appears in the browser window. You can run only operational commands in this mode.

    • Full access with Junos device login credentials—Allows you to log in to the device using the Junos login credentials. If the connection is established successfully, the configuration mode CLI prompt appears in the browser window. You can run both configuration and operational commands in this mode.

  5. Close the Remote Terminal browser window to disconnect from the device.

    The session times out if the session remains idle for more than two minutes (default) and you are automatically logged out of the device. The Remote console connection was closed. Please close this window and open the remote console again message appears in the browser window.

    CSO generates an audit log each time a user accesses the device CLI. The logs provide information about the user, the date and time of access, and type of access (read-only or read-write). Use the Audit Logs page (Administration > Audit Logs) to view the remote console audit logs.
