Setting Up Access Methods

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 access method (Junos XML protocol or NETCONF access protocol to connect to the Junos XML protocol or NETCONF server running on 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 for Junos XML protocol, and Secure Shell (SSH) for NETCONF. We recommend that you set up access methods before you set up routers.

You can import access method 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 access methods.
