Connecting to the SRX550 Services Gateway from the J-Web Interface


To use the J-Web setup wizard to configure the SRX550 Services Gateway, you must connect through one of the built-in Ethernet management ports.


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

When the services gateway is powered on for the first time, the system looks for a DHCP server. If it does not find one, it assigns an IP address within the network to any device connected to it.

To connect to the J-Web interface through the port labeled 0/1 (interface ge-0/0/1) on the services gateway, see Figure 1.

  1. From the management device (such as a desktop or laptop computer) that you use to access the J-Web interface, verify that the address of the port that you connect to the services gateway is set to one of the following:
    • Ethernet address on the network (other than

    • Ethernet address from a DHCP server

  2. Turn off the power to the management device.
  3. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable (Figure 2 shows the connector) into the Ethernet port on the management device.

  4. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the built-in Ethernet port 0/1 on the services gateway.
  5. Power on the services gateway by connecting the power cord or by pressing the Power button on the front of the services gateway.
  6. Wait until the STATUS LED on the front panel turns solid green.
  7. Turn on the power to the management device. The services gateway assigns an IP address to the management device within the network if the services gateway is configured to use DHCP.
  8. From the management device, open a Web browser and enter the IP address in the address field.
  9. Specify the default username as root. Do not enter any value in the Password field.
  10. Press Enter. The J-Web setup wizard appears. Note

    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.

  11. Use the wizard to configure basic settings such as hostname, domain name, and root password for your services gateway. You can also use the wizard to configure a default gateway, DNS servers, domain search, VLANs, interfaces, and the J-Web interface preferences. For details on using the J-Web setup wizard to configure basic settings for the services gateway, see Configuring Basic Settings for the SRX550 Services Gateway with a Configuration Editor.
  12. Click Commit to apply the configuration. After configuring the basic settings, you are prompted to log out. Relaunch the page to see the settings and continue working in the J-Web interface.

You must manually configure the IP address for the management port that you are using before you save your initial configuration. When you save the configuration for the first time, you will lose the connection to the services gateway if you have not manually configured the IP address. If you lose the connection through the management interface, you must connect through the console port.
