Access the J-Web User Interface

Prerequisites for Using J-Web

To access the J-Web interface for all SRX Series devices, your management device requires the following software:

  • Supported browsers—Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Internet Explorer.


    By default, you establish a J-Web session through an HTTPS-enabled Web browser.

  • Language support— English-version browsers.

Log in to J-Web


This document assumes that you are accessing the device to launch J-Web for the first time using a factory default configuration. If your SRX Series device is already configured with a management IP address, you simply point your browser to the device's management address to access J-Web.

The factory default settings vary between SRX Series devices. In addition, some SRX Series devices have interface while others use a revenue (network interface) port for Ethernet based management. When running a factory default configuration SRX 300 and 500 Series devices typically provide DCHP services on specific network interface ports that are enabled for host management access.

On SRX Series devices with a dedicated management interface, DHCP services may or may not be present in the factory default. Some devices provide DHCP server functions on the dedicated management interface (fxp0). When using a device that does not offer DHCP services, for example an SRX5400, you must ensure the management device has a compatible IP address. This address can be manually assigned or be allocated by an external DHCP server on the management network.

Table 1 provides the factory defaults relating to J-Web access for SRX Series devices. If your SRX Series device is not listed, refer to the corresponding hardware guide for details on the factory defaults.

To log into the J-Web interface on a new device:

  1. Connect the appropriate Ethernet network port on your device to the Ethernet port on the management device (laptop or PC), using an RJ-45 cable. See Table 1.
  2. If you are using an SRX Series device that provides DHCP services for the management device, confirm that the management device successfully acquires an IP address from the SRX Series device. When using an SRX Series device that does not provide DHCP services for the management device, you must manually configure the management device with a compatible IP address. See Table 1.
  3. Open a browser and enter https://<IP address> in the address bar.

    Where, <IP address> is the IP address of the SRX Series device.


    In a factory default configuration, a self-signed certificate is used to support the HTTPS connection. You can safely accept the security exception to perform initial configuration.

    As the device is running a factory default configuration, the J-Web Setup Wizard screen opens. See Figure 1.

    Two examples are given to better illustrate the use of the information in Table 1:

    1. You have an SRX380 device:

      1. You connect your management PC, which is configured for DHCP address assignment, to the fxp0 port, or to port ge-0/0/1 through ge-0/0/18.

      2. If connected to the fxp0 port, you access J-Web at

      3. If connected to ge-0/0/1 through ge-0/0/18, you access J-Web at

    2. You have an SRX5400 device:

      1. You connect your management PC, which is statically configured with an IP address from subnet, to the fxp0 port.


        The static IP address assignment cannot use for fxp0 on the management subnet as the SRX Series device uses this IP address.

      2. You access J-Web at

        After a successful user login, J-Web opens the Basic settings page.

  4. Optional. If you do not want to perform the initial configuration, then:
    1. Click Skip Setup.

      The J-Web Device Password screen appears. See Figure 2.

      Figure 2: Device Password Device Password
    2. Enter the root password.

    3. Click OK.

      The password is committed to the device and the J-Web login page appears.

    4. Enter the username and password again and click Log In.

      The J-Web application window appears.


      You can choose Device Administration > Reset Configuration through the J-Web menu to reset and reconfigure the SRX Series device.

Congratulations! Now that you have access to the J-Web interface, you are ready to use J-Web to configure, manage, and monitor your SRX device.
