Connecting an SRX210 Services Gateway to the J-Web Interface

 

If you plan to use the J-Web interface to configure the SRX210 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 subnetwork to any devices connected to the system.

To connect to the J-Web interface through any of the ports ge-0/0/1 or fe-0/0/2 to fe-0/0/7 on the services gateway, see Figure 1.

To connect to the Ethernet port:

  1. From the management device 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 ge-0/0/1 or fe-0/0/2 to 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 will assign 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. To access the setup wizard, open a Web browser on the management device and enter the IP address 192.168.1.1 in the address field.Note

    The wizard works best with Mozilla Firefox version 15.x or later.
