On juniper's site, you may have to log in or make yourself a login first, but they have an administrator's guide there.

Check out the Security Client Administrator Guide for whichever version you have. If you have a more detailed question after going through the documentation, let me know.

ALso have a look at root and go to the screenos version you are using, in there will be more specific VPN docs to allow you to configure the full VPN stuff on the SSG as well as the NS remote docs above.

If you do not like NetScreen Remote (e.g. because of pricing, configuration options, ...) you can try the free Shrew client at, which has a step-by-step configuration manual for Juniper ScreenOS.
