Welcome back! You're the new owner of a branch SRX services gateway. In the companion Day One+ guide, you learned how to install and power on the SRX. We also showed you how to perform basic initial configuration using the CLI.

If you’re eager to start using your SRX to provide secure branch connectivity, then you've come to the right place. In this guide, we'll walk you through a typical "Day in the Life" of an SRX administrator who's tasked with securely bringing a new branch office online.

This guide is applicable to the SRX300, SRX320, SRX340, SRX345, and SRX380 branch SRX models. We developed and tested the procedures in this guide using an SRX380 running Junos OS release 21.4R1. The SRX380 has a dedicated management interface and supports 16x1GE and 4x10GE network interfaces. Other SRX branch models have a different port configuration and management interface, but all branch SRX models have a similar factory-default configuration.


We'll provide a lot of links to the main documentation along the way to keep reminding you of where to find additional details. See Table 2 for additional information about the many features you can configure for the Juniper Networks SRX Services Gateway .
