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

Only the SRX650 Services Gateway supports hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs. The SRX550 Services Gateway does not support hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs.

Before you begin to configure the GPIM:

  • Ensure that you have configured security zones on the services gateway.

  • Ensure that you have configured security policies on the services gateway.

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:

  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:

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

  4. Assign the interface an IP address:

    [edit]

    user@host# set interfacesinterface-nameunit 0 family inet addressinterface address/destination prefix

  5. Add or select a security zone:

    [edit]

    user@host# set security zones security-zonezone-name interfacesinterface-namehost-inbound-traffic system-services all

  6. Add or select security zones for host inbound traffic protocol options:

    [edit]

    user@host# set security zones security-zonezone-nameinterfacesinterface-name host-inbound-traffic protocols all

  7. Set security policies:

    [edit]

    user@host# set security policiespolicy-name
