I seemed to have locked myself out of remote admin via a browser. I entered the wrong IP address in the Permitted IPs section via the browser admin (Configuration > Admin > Permitted IPs). The wrong IP is also a public IP in my assigned block of IP addresses. It was a copy/paste mistake on my part. D'OH!

I can still can connect via VPN and Remote Desktop to servers. Is there anything else I can do besides drive to the datacenter and connect via the console port?

You should be able to access the Netscreen via its internal address (getting in by VPN), log in, and reset remote management .

I agree with thinkpads_user.  In fact, this should be the preferred method of access when it's available and don't use public access at all.

Correct, I only access the Browser admin via a local IP after I establish a VPN connection. The problem now is that after I entered a public IP in (Configuration > Admin > Permitted IPs), the VPN works but browsing to the local admin internal IP does not.

How remote are you? Can you get to the box and access by console? If so you should be able to reset the setting.

Yes I can get to datacenter. Just wondering if I could save myself the trip :) If not, I will just fix this the next time I do a backup swap.
