Connecting an SRX220 Services Gateway to the J-Web Interface

If you plan to use the J-Web interface to configure the SRX220 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 DHCP server. If it does not find one, the system assigns an IP address within the 192.168.1.0/24 network to any devices connected to the system.

To connect to the J-Web interface through any of the ports 0/1 to 0/7 (interfaces ge-0/0/1 to ge-0/0/7) on the services gateway, see Figure 16.

Ethernet port on management device

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 network 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 0/1 to 0/7 (interfaces ge-0/0/1 to ge-0/0/7) on the services gateway.
  4. Wait until the Status LED on the front panel of the services gateway lights 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 network if the services gateway is configured to use DHCP.
  6. From the management device, open a Web browser and enter the IP address 192.168.1.1 in the address field.
  7. Configure the 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.
