Creating Extranet Devices


Use the Extranet devices page to manage the third-party devices that Junos Space does not directly control or manage. Extranet devices can be ScreenOS devices or other vendor VPN-capable firewall devices that cannot be managed by Security Director. Extranet devices in the Security Director help users design and manage VPNs residing between SRX Series devices and third-party devices without actually being connected to them.

Before you begin

To configure extranet devices:

  1. Select Configure> IPSec VPN > Extranet Devices.
  2. Click the plus sign (+) to create a new extranet device.

    Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.

  3. Click OK to save.

Your changes are saved. A new extranet device is added to Security Director.
