Netscreen 5GT unable to forward ports 161 and 1723
Posted on 2007-04-02
I have a client with a Netscreen 5GT Router. All I need to do is forward ports 161 and 1723. When I try to do it using a Virtual IP it give me an error saying those ports aren't available for Virtual IP. I know I have the command syntax right because I tried it with port 80 and it worked.
It seems excessively lame that a $600 dollar router would not be able to do something as simple as forwarding ports so I am assuming there must be another way to do it with MIP or something.
It must be done from the CLI because the web interface is not enabled for some reason. If there is a way to enable the web interface from the CLI WITHOUT reseting to factory default that would be great as well.
