Yes, you are seeing that picture correctly – this post is about Junos.
I have decided to fire up my tiny Juniper lab that consists of two SRX210 and one SRX100 router/firewall. These devices connected to a Cisco 2500 (someone did say one router to rule them all 😛 ) for remote console access to the pod. I also have a small Cisco 831 in connected in this lab so that I can test commands and configuration interoperability. Also, if I know the Cisco router config is right and the Juniper router is not connecting, I can be confident that at least one end has a known good config.
Be kind to me, just getting into this stuff. I took a class a few years back on Junos, but much has changed since then.
So, what is the first thing you need to do when you get a SRX router for a lab? Its funny, but delete the default config is probably easiest. The joys of the SRX is that they come with DHCP and other stuff enabled and that just drives me nuts!
Let us start with powering a SRX up and getting some basic configs for remote access configured.
