SSG 5 Juniper firewall

Hi there,

I started to configure the SSG 5 Juniper firewall and get to basic configuration. I need to know the following commands and I can not figure it out.

1. I want to see the running configuration. In cisco we just type Show running config and I tried using different and neither worked. I only get to know get interface that listed the interfaces and IP addresses on the interfaces.


2. I want to know how I can upload the latest OS on the firewall?

Thank you.

The SSG5 has a web interface which is vastly easier to work with than a command line (I have done both). Log into the SSG5 by IP address. Enter the userid and password (it appears you may have done it).

1. The elements of complete configuration are listed down the side.  The home page shows the current firmware revision.

2. In the configuration section, you can save the current configuration (do this before upgrading any firmware) and then also in the configuration, you can update the firmware (you need the firmware file on hand from Juniper first). Open the various sub menus in Configuration to see what I mean. Click on the + beside the menu item to expand it.

To get the complete configuration on cli, type "get config"
The SSG has also a kind of "autocompletion". When you type e.x. "get ?", it will list you the possibilities you have. This works for nearly all commands found on the cli. But I second thinkpad_user, with the SSG-firewalls working with the webinterface is easier. With junOS (SRX-series) things are different, I would always prefer the cli there.

Execute 'get config' (w/o quote) from the cli to see the configuration like show run in Cisco. To see all the interfaces and it's config, execute 'get system' like show ip interfaces in Cisco.
