Connecting the SRX110 Services Gateway to the J-Web Interface

If you plan to use the J-Web interface to configure the SRX110 Services Gateway, you must connect through one of the built-in Ethernet management ports.

When the services gateway is powered on for the first time, the system looks for a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. If it does not find one, the system assigns an IP address within the 192.168.1.0/24 subnetwork to any devices connected to the system.

To connect to the J-Web interface through any of the ports fe-0/0/1 through fe-0/0/7 on the services gateway, see Figure 25.

Connecting to
the Ethernet Port on an SRX110 Services Gateway

To connect to the Ethernet port:

  1. From the management device that you use to access the J-Web interface (such as a PC or a laptop), verify that the address of the port you connect to is set to one of the following values:
    • Ethernet address on the 192.168.1.0/24 subnetwork other than 192.168.1.1
    • Ethernet address from a DHCP server
  2. Plug one end of the CAT-5e (Ethernet cable) into the Ethernet port on the management device.
  3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to any of the built-in Ethernet ports fe-0/0/1 through fe-0/0/7 on the services gateway.
  4. Wait until the Status LED on the front panel of the services gateway turns solid green.
  5. Turn on the power to the management device. The services gateway assigns an IP address to the management device within the 192.168.1.0/24 subnetwork if the management device is configured to use DHCP.

    Note: After connecting the management device to the services gateway, the DHCP server process on the services gateway assigns an IP address automatically to the management device. Ensure that the management device acquires an IP address on the 192.168.1.0/24 subnetwork (other than 192.168.1.1) from the device.

  6. From the management device, open a Web browser and enter the IP address 192.168.1.1 in the address field if the management device is configured using the DHCP.
  7. Configure basic settings for your services gateway.

Note: You must manually configure the IP address for the management port you are using before you save your initial configuration. When you save the configuration for the first time, you will lose the connection to the services gateway if you have not manually configured the IP address. If you lose the connection through the management interface, you must connect through the Console port.
