Connecting to the SRX100 Services Gateway Setup Wizard


If you plan to use the setup wizard to perform the initial configuration of the services gateway, you must connect your management device (such as a laptop or desktop computer) to one of the built-in Ethernet ports 0/1 through 0/7 on the services gateway as shown in Figure 1. Do not use built-in Ethernet port 0/0.

To enable communication between the management device and the services gateway, ports 0/1 through 0/7 are preconfigured with the IP address and use DHCP to assign an IP address in the network to any connected device.

To connect a management device to the built-in Ethernet ports:

  1. Ensure that the IP address for the Ethernet port on the management device is configured in one of the following ways:
    • The IP address is assigned by DHCP.

    • The IP address is on the subnetwork (but is not

  2. Turn off the management device.
  3. Plug one end of the CAT-5e (Ethernet cable) into the Ethernet port on the management device.
  4. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to a built-in Fast Ethernet port (any of ports 0/1 through 0/7) on the services gateway. If the services gateway has not already been powered on, power it on now.
  5. Wait until the Status LED on the front panel of the services gateway turns solid green.

  6. Turn on the power to the management device. The services gateway assigns an IP address to the management device within the subnetwork if the management device is configured to use DHCP.
  7. To access the setup wizard, open a Web browser on the management device and enter the IP address in the address field.
