We recommend a screen resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels or higher.


To avoid a Browser Exploit Against SSL/TLS (BEAST) attack, whenever you log in to Junos Space through a browser tab or window, make sure that the tab or window was not previously used to access a non-HTTPS website. Best practice is to close your browser and relaunch it before logging in to Junos Space.

  • The Network Monitoring Topology feature of Junos Space Platform is not supported on Internet Explorer.

  • Before you log in to Junos Space, ensure that the Adobe Flash version 10 or later plug-in is installed in your browser.

    Do one of the following:

    • To prevent the informational message from appearing again, ensure that the Don’t show again check box is selected and click OK. The Don’t show again check box is selected by default.
