Remotely Accessing a Device CLI
You can use the Devices page to remotely access the CLI of CPE devices, and run operational or configuration commands. To access the device CLI from the Devices page:
- Select Resources > Devices.
The Devices page appears.
- Select a device from the list.
You can only select a device for which the operational status is marked as Up.
- Click More > Remote Console.
The Remote Console for Device-Name page appears.
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.
- 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.
- Close the Remote Terminal browser window to disconnect
from the device.
The session times out if the session remains idle for more than 15 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.
You must close the idle terminal window before opening a new terminal 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.
