Setting Up Authentication Information

This chapter describes how to set up the Junos Scope software to connect to routing platforms on your network for configuration operations.

You can specify the authentication information (login and password for accessing a router) configured on a router for remotely connecting to that router from the Junos Scope software. The Junos Scope software supports secure sockets layer (SSL) and clear-text access protocols. We recommend that you set up authentication information and access methods before you set up routers.

You can import authentication information from another Junos Scope server or export it as backup or for importing to another server.

You must have superuser permissions to set up authentication information.
