Performing Initial Software Configuration on the SRX220 Services Gateway Using the J-Web Interface Setup Wizard


This topic includes the following sections:

Establishing Basic Connectivity

To establish basic connectivity:

  1. Connect an Ethernet cable from any of the ports labeled 0/1 through 0/7 (interfaces ge-0/0/1 through ge-0/0/7) on the services gateway to the Ethernet port on the management device (workstation or laptop).
  2. Connect the power cable to the device and a power source. (We recommend using a surge protector.) Note the following indications:
    • Power LED (green): The device is receiving power.

    • Status LED (green): The device is operating normally.


    The services gateway functions as a DHCP server and assigns an IP address to the management device.

  3. Ensure that the management device acquires an IP address on the network (other than from the device.Note

    If an IP address is not assigned to the management device, manually configure an IP address in the network. Do not assign the IP address to the management device because this IP address is assigned to the device.

  4. Access the J-Web interface:
    1. Launch a Web browser from the management device.Note

      To access the J-Web interface, your management device requires a supported browser: either Microsoft Internet Explorer version 7.0 (or later) or Mozilla Firefox version 3.0 (or later).

    2. In the Address box, enter .
    3. Specify the default username as root. Do not enter any value in the Password box.
    4. Press Enter. The J-Web Setup Wizard page opens.
  5. Use the wizard to configure the basic settings such as hostname, domain name, and root password, for your services gateway.

    The upper left area of the wizard page shows where you are in the setup process. Click a field in the wizard page to display information about that field in the lower left area of the page.

    You can also use the wizard to configure the following settings:

    • Default gateway

    • DNS servers

    • Domain search

    • VLANs

    • Interfaces

    See Table 1 and Table 2 for a summary of the required and optional configuration details.

  6. Click Commit on the Review & Commit page to apply the configuration.Note

    After configuring the basic settings, the J-Web setup wizard redirects you to J-Web pages where you can continue working in the J-Web interface.

    After you complete initial setup configuration, the Setup Wizard is no longer available. To make changes to the configuration, use the J-Web interface.
