Configure Network Settings through JSI Shell

SUMMARY This section provides information on the JSI Shell.

JSI Shell Overview

The JSI Shell is an SSH menu system for the vLWC. It allows you to view the current network settings and network status through an SSH login. You can use the JSI Shell as an alternate option to configure network settings. You can interact with the JSI Shell menu system through the keyboard. See Table 1.

Table 1: Keyboard Navigation
Key Action
Up and Down arrow keys, or number press Navigate to an option.
Enter key Select the option.
Esc key Go back to the previous menu or exit the shell depending on what menu you are currently in.

Login to JSI Shell

You can access the JSI Shell using one of the following ways:

  • SSH to the configured IP address of the management (cap) interface.

  • Through the VMWare console if networking has not been setup successfully yet on the management (cap) interface. To login to the console, click ggc-lnx VM under the vLWC vApp and click either Launch Web Console or Launch Remote Console in the Summary tab to open the login prompt for the vLWC.

    Use jsiuser and the hard coded password to log into the JSI Shell. You can also set a custom login password from the JSI Shell. See Change JSI Shell Login Password.

    Note:

    If you are changing the password for the first time, contact Juniper support to get the initial password.

On successful login, the vLWC Main Menu (JSI Shell) screen appears. See Figure 1.

You can change the login password for jsiuser from the JSI Shell Main Menu screen. To change the password, select Change password for jsiuser from the vLWC Main Menu screen (using the arrow key or pressing 6 on the keyboard), press Enter, and follow the prompts to specify the new password.

Configure Network Settings

You can configure the following network settings from the JSI Shell:

  • Interfaces—Internal (int), External (ext), Management (cap)

    Note:

    While configuring the internal, external, and management interfaces, you must ensure that the subnet of the IP address assigned to the internal network port, external network port, and captive portal are different from each other.

  • Active proxy

Follow the steps below to configure the network settings:

  1. Login to the vLWC Main Menu (JSI Shell). See Login to JSI Shell.
  2. Select Edit Network Settings (using the arrow key or pressing 3 on the keyboard) from the vLWC Main Menu screen.
    The vLWC Edit Network Settings Menu screen appears. See Figure 2.

    1. Select the interface you want to edit (options one to three) from the vLWC Edit Network Settings Menu screen.
    2. Select the appropriate options from the series of menus presented after which a vLWC Edit interface Settings Menu screen appears for the interface you selected.
