Configuring Basic Settings for the SRX240 Services Gateway with J-Web Quick Configuration

J-Web Quick Configuration allows you to configure basic settings. Figure 1 shows the Quick Configuration page for basic setup.

To configure basic settings with J-Web Quick Configuration:

  1. Connect a management device to the ge-0/0/0 interface on port 0/0/0.
  2. Select Configuration>Quick Configuration >Set Up if the Quick Configuration Set Up page is not displayed.
  3. Enter information into the Quick Configuration Set Up page, as described in Table 1.
  4. Click one of the following buttons:
    • Click Apply to apply the configuration and remain on the Quick Configuration Set Up page.
    • Click OK to apply the configuration and return to the Quick Configuration page.
    • Click Cancel to cancel your entries and return to the Quick Configuration page.

    Note: After initial configuration is complete, the services gateway stops functioning as a DHCP server. If you change the IP address of ge-0/0/0 and have the management device configured to use DHCP, you lose your DHCP lease and your connection to the services gateway through the J-Web interface. To reestablish a connection, either set the IP address on the management device manually or connect ge-0/0/0 to the management network and access the services gateway another way—for example, through the Console port.

Function

Your Action

Identification

Host Name (required)

Defines the hostname of the services gateway.

Type the hostname.

Domain Name

Defines the network or subnetwork that the services gateway belongs to.

Type the domain name.

Root Password (required)

Sets the password that user root can use to log into the services gateway.

Type a plaintext password that the system encrypts.

Note: After a root password has been defined, it is required when you log into the J-Web user interface or the CLI.

Verify Root Password (required)

Verifies the root password has been typed correctly.

Retype the password.

Time

Time Zone

Identifies the time zone in which the services gateway is located.

From the list, select the appropriate time zone.

NTP Servers

Specifies an NTP server that the services gateway can reach to synchronize the system time.

To add an IP address, type it in the box to the left of the Add button, then click Add.

To delete an IP address, click on it in the box above the Add button, then click Delete.

Current System Time

Synchronizes the system time with the NTP server or allows you to manually set the system time and date.

  • To immediately set the time using the NTP server, click Set Time via NTP. The services gateway sends a request to the NTP server and synchronizes the system time.

    Note: If you are configuring other settings on this page, the services gateway also synchronizes the system time using the NTP server when you click Apply or OK.

  • To set the time manually, click Set Time Manually. A window allows you to select the current date and time from lists.
Network

DNS Name Servers

Specifies a DNS server that the services gateway can use to resolve hostnames into addresses.

To add an IP address, type it in the box to the left of the Add button, then click Add.

To delete an IP address, click on it in the box above the Add button, then click Delete.

Domain Search

Adds each domain name that includes the services gateway to the configuration so that each domain is included in a DNS search.
