Junos OS Configuration Basics


Your router comes with Junos OS installed on it. When you power on the router, all software starts automatically. You simply need to configure the software so that the router will be ready to participate in the network.

To configure the Junos OS, you must specify a hierarchy of configuration statements that define the preferred software properties. You can configure all properties of the Junos OS, including interfaces, general routing information, routing protocols, and user access, as well as some system hardware properties. After you have created a candidate configuration, you commit the configuration to be evaluated and activated by the Junos OS.
