    Connecting to the Network Topology

    To connect to the virtual devices in the network topology and work with them:

    1. Select Topologies > Access Active Topologies.
    2. Click the Virtual Machines tab to view the IP address and connection information for the Console port or management Ethernet of the virtual device.

      Note: This information can be copied and pasted into an Excel spreadsheet.

    3. Click Join in the Active Topology section at the top of the screen.

      The Junosphere Access Portal appears.

    4. Enter your username and password and click Sign In.
    5. Click the Network Connect Start button.

      Network Connect establishes a secure access SSL VPN to the internal management Ethernet of the topology. Traffic will be directed only to the local management Ethernet over that tunnel. Network Connect works best without web proxies, but works fine with a static proxy configuration. It will not work, however, if the browser is configured with a PAC (proxy auto-configuration) file.

      Note: You need to have administration rights on your computer to install the Network Connect software.

      You cannot run two simultaneous instances of Network Connect. If you already have one instance of Network Connect running for a corporate VPN, you must stop it before you begin another instance.

    6. Connect to a virtual device using an appropriate communications program. For example:
      • For VJX, use telnet or CMD shell.
      • For CentOS, use VNC. Enter the IP address (with :1 at the end) of the virtual device; enter Clouds as the password.
      • For Junos Space or Mu Studio, open a browser from a virtual CentOS in Junosphere and browse to the IP address.

      For more information, refer to the manual for each VM type.

    7. Log in to the Junos OS virtual device using the default username and password. The default root password is Clouds.
    8. If you are connecting to a Junos OS network device, enter cli to start using the Junos OS environment.

    Just as with a physical Junos OS device, configuration changes are made in edit mode and then committed to implement the changes on the router. To save your changes to the library, click Save on the Junosphere Libraries menu.
