How do I (again) access the WebUI of Netscreen 5GT?

I will be replacing the Netscreen 5gt with a Watch Guard XTM5 series however, when I plugged in to the network the Watch Guard, a user complained that they can access a resource anymore. So what I did is switch back all the connections to the old Netscreen box and I can't access the WebUI anymore.....

I tried to reboot the Netscreen box to no avail and I connected my laptop directly to the box via cross connect cable and unfortunately to no avail.

Please note that I have never used the CLI so this may not be an option not unless you can guide me step by step on how to do this.

Thanks in advance

If you are local to the Netscreen and then in Internet Explorer, type in http://gateway IP for netscreen. You may need https://....

That should take you to the web management screen. There is a setting for remote managment, but you should be able to get to the web management screen locally.

There is always a chance there was a hardware malfunction. .... Thinkpads_User

Thanks thinkpad_user however, I forgot to mention that I did that by typing the Gateway IP address via different browsers and I still cannot open the Webui.

I also tried using both HTTP and HTTPS plus added the port 8080, 80 and 8000 but still no dice.

If it was working before, then something may have gone wrong (hardware) when you disconnected it. Short of resetting it and reconfiguring it, I do not know what else to suggest. ... Thinkpads_User

I was thinking of resetting it but that will give more headache as this will erase all the configuration that was in it when I joined the company. Aside from that, I need to get in to UI to see what setting that I missed out when I configured the new Watch Guard.

Thanks though Thinkpads_user and I'll just wait for other to give feedback

I export configs regularly and save them just in case. Yes, resetting will erase your configs.

You can access the Netscreen via command line interface as shown below:

 Netscreen-via-Putty
Your netscreen must be enabled to do this. Some of mine are, some are not. If not, then you need to access by the DB9 console port. That should work.

Google for "netscreen 5GT command line interface" and you will find some manuals to read through.  From one manual (OS V5) there are these commands:

Note: this was copied from an online, publicly available Netscreen manual, but the copyright belongs to Juniper
--------------------------------------------
set interface interface manage
{ ident-reset | nsmgmt | ping | snmp | ssh | ssl | telnet | web }

unset interface interface manage
{ ident-reset | nsmgmt | ping | snmp | ssh | ssl | telnet | web }

Example: The following command enables management of SSH through interface ethernet3:
set interface ethernet3 manage ssh manage Enables or disables monitoring and management capability through the interface.

• ident-reset Directs the NetScreen device to send a TCP Reset announcement, in response to an IDENT request, to port 113.

• nsmgmt Enables or disables NSM (NetScreen-Security Manager) on the interface. NSM is an enterprise-level management application that configures NetScreen devices from remote hosts. For more information, see “nsmgmt” on page 286.

• ping Enables (or disables) pinging through the interface.
• snmp Enables (or disables) SNMP management through the interface.
• ssh Enables (or disables) SSH management through the interface.
• ssl Enables (or disables) SSL management through the interface.
• telnet Enables (or disables) telnet management through the interface.
• web Enables (or disables) web management through the interface
-------------------------------------------------------
Examine the last command. If you can log in, the command to leave is "exit"
