Configuring Route-Based VPN Using an SRX Series or a J Series Device and an SSG Device Overview


The Juniper Networks Junos operating system (Junos OS), which runs on J Series and SRX Series devices, provides not only a powerful operating system, but also a rich IP services toolkit. Junos OS has been enhanced with security and virtual private network (VPN) features from the Juniper Networks Firewall/IPsec VPN platforms, which include the Secure Services Gateway (SSG) product family. This document provides detailed information about IPsec interoperability between a J Series or SRX Series device and an SSG device using a route-based VPN. This example also provides troubleshooting information for J Series or SRX Series devices.

The configuration of a Junos OS routing/security device for VPN support is very flexible. You can create route-based and policy-based VPN tunnels. This document focuses on route-based VPN tunnels.
