Configuring the System for Remote Access

To allow remote access to the system, you must configure the generic interfaces. You can specify an IP address with mask or a broadcast address with mask for an interface. For more information, see SRC PE Getting Started Guide, Chapter 7, Configuring Remote Access to a C Series Controller.

To configure the generic interfaces:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the interface.
    user@host# edit interfaces eth0
  2. Specify the unit, family, and IP address for the interface.
    [edit interfaces eth0]user@host# set unit number family inet address address

    For example, to configure an interface with only an IP address:

    [edit interfaces eth0]user@host# set unit 0 family inet address 192.2.0.10/24
  3. (Optional) Specify the broadcast address for the interface.
    [edit interfaces eth0]user@host# set unit number family inet broadcast broadcast

    For example, to configure an interface with only a broadcast address:

    [edit interfaces eth0]user@host# set unit 0 family inet broadcast 192.2.0.255
  4. Verify the interface configuration.
    [edit interfaces eth0]user@host# show unit 0 { family {inet {broadcast 192.2.0.255;}}}
