8-Port Serial GPIM Basic Configuration

The 8-Port Serial Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Module (GPIM) is a network interface card (NIC) that installs in the front slots of the SRX650 and SRX550 Services Gateways to provide physical connections to a WAN. After you install the GPIM in the services gateway, you configure a network interface on the GPIM.

Note: Both the SRX550 and the SRX650 Services Gateways support hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs.

Before you begin to configure the GPIM:

Note: This topic shows a basic configuration that applies a security zone to all protocols and a default policy set. You can also configure specific zone settings and policies on the interface.

To configure the 8-Port Serial GPIM and configure a network interface on the GPIM:

  1. Verify that the 8-Port Serial GPIM is installed in the services gateway:

    user@host > show chassis hardware

    The following sample output shows that FPC 3 PIC 0 is the GPIM:

  2. Verify that the PIC on the GPIM is online:

    user@host> show chassis fpc pic-status

    The following sample output shows that FPC 3 PIC 0 is online:

    root@srx-650-b# run show chassis fpc pic-status
    Slot 0   Online       FPC  
      PIC 0  Online       4x GE Base PIC
    Slot 3   Online       FPC
      PIC 0  Online       8x Sync Serial gPIM
    Slot 6   Online       FPC
      PIC 0  Online       24x GE POE gPIM             
  3. Verify that the serial network interface that you want to configure on the GPIM is up:

    user@host> show interfaces terse

    The following sample output shows that the serial network interface you are configuring is up:

    root@srx-650-a> show interfaces se-4/0/* terse
    Interface               Admin Link Proto    Local                 Remote

    se-4/0/1                up    up
    se-4/0/2                up    up
    se-4/0/3                up    up
    se-4/0/4                up    up
    se-4/0/5                up    up
    se-4/0/6                up    up
    se-4/0/7                up    up

    The following sample output shows extensive details of se-4/0/0 on the interface:
