Connecting to the SRX650 Services Gateway Setup Wizard

 

If you plan to use the setup wizard to configure the SRX650 Services Gateway, you must connect through the built-in Ethernet port 0/1 as shown in Figure 1.

To enable communication between the management device and the services gateway, port 0/1 is preconfigured with the IP address 192.168.1.1 and uses DHCP to assign an IP address in the 192.168.1.0/24 network to any connected device.

To connect a management device to built-in Ethernet port 0/1:

  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 192.168.1.0/24 subnetwork (but is not 192.168.1.1).

  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 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 192.168.1.0/24 subnetwork if the management device is configured to use DHCP.
  8. 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.
  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 may also use the wizard to configure a default gateway, DNS servers, domain search, VLANs, interfaces, and J-Web preferences. For details on using the J-Web setup wizard to configure basic settings for the services gateway, see Configuring Basic Settings for the SRX650 Services Gateway with the CLI or the J-Web Interface.
  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 J-Web.Note

    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.
