Interconnecting Interface Ports Configuration Page Options

On SRX Series Services Gateways, the logical tunnel interface is used to interconnect logical systems. Use this page to interconnect logical system that serves as an internal virtual private LAN service (VPLS) switch connecting one logical system on the device to another.

Procedure

  1. Select Configure>Interfaces>Interconnect Ports in the J-Web user interface.

    The Interfaces configuration page appears. Table 125 explains the contents of this page.

  2. Click one:
    • Add or +—Add a new or duplicate interface configuration. See, Table 126.

    • Edit or /—Edit the selected interface configuration.

    • Delete or X—Delete the selected interface configuration.

  3. Click Commit icon at the top of the J-Web page. The following commit options are displayed.

    • Commit—Commits the configuration and returns to the main configuration page.

    • Compare—Enables you to compare the current configuration with the previous configuration.

    • Discard—Discards the configuration changes you performed in the J-Web.

    • Preferences—There are two tab:

      • Commit preferences—You can choose to just validate or validate and commit the changes.

      • Confirm commit timeout (in min) —You can select the commit timeout interval.

Field

Function

Interface

Displays the interface name. Logical interfaces configured under this interface appear in a collapsible list under the physical interface.

Link Status

Displays the operational status of the link. Status can be either Up or Down.

IP Addresses

Displays the configured IP addresses. Multiple IP addresses configured on one logical interface are displayed in a collapsible list under the logical interface.

Encapsulation

Displays the mode of encapsulation. Encapsulation is the process of taking data from one protocol and translating it into another protocol, so the data can continue across a network. It can from the following points:

  • Ethernet

  • Frame Relay

  • Ethernet VPLS

Ethernet and Frame Relay are used if logical tunnel interfaces connected between two logical systems. Ethernet VPLS will be used on logical tunnel interface which is connecting VPLS switch to logical system.

LSYS/Tenant/VPLS Switch

Displays the name of the logical system or the name of VPLS Switch.

Peer Interface

Displays the peer details.

Type

Displays the type for logical interface—Logical System, Tenant, or VPLS Switch.

Peer Encapsulation

Displays the peer encapsulation mode.

Peer LSYS/VPLS Switch

Displays the name of the peer logical system and VPLS Switch.

Unit

Specify the unit for logical interface.

Enter the Logical unit number

Type

Specify the type for logical interface.

Select a type from the drop down list. The options available are Logical System, Tenant, and VPLS Switch.

Logical System

Specify the logical system created.

Select a logical system from the list. If not present in the list, then we need to create a logical system.

Note: Starting from Junos OS 19.1R1, the user interface will autocomplete the logical system names when you type the partial name.

Tenant

Specify the tenant created.

Select a tenant from the list.

Note: Starting from Junos OS 19.1R1, the user interface will autocomplete the tenant names when you type the partial name.

VPLS Switch

Specify the VPLS switch created.

Select a VPLS switch from the list.

Description

Specify the interface description.

Enter description for the interface.

IPv4 Address

Specify the IPv4 address.

Click + and enter the following:

  • IPv4 address—IP Addresses added here would be used as interconnect IP.

  • Prefix Length—Enter the prefix length. This specifies the number of bits set in the subnet mask.

IPv6 Address

Specify the IPv6 address.

Click + and enter the following:

  • IPv6 address—IP Addresses added here would be used as interconnect IP.

  • Prefix Length—Enter the prefix length. This specifies the number of bits set in the subnet mask.

Peer Details

Type

Specify the type of connection.

Select any one of the connection type from the following:

  • Logical system

  • Tenant

  • VPLS Switch

Logical System

Displays the name of the logical system.

Select a logical system from the list. If not present in the list, then we need to create a logical system.

Tenant

Specify the tenant created.

Select a tenant from the list.

Unit

Specify the peering logical system unit number.

Enter the logical system unit number

Description

Enter description for the interface.

IPv4 Address

Specify the IPv4 address.

Click + and enter the following:

  • IPv4 address—IP Addresses added here would be used as interconnect IP.

  • Prefix Length—Enter the prefix length. This specifies the number of bits set in the subnet mask.

IPv6 Address

Specify the IPv6 address.

Click + and enter the following:
