I was just wondering if there is a tool or what I need to do to properly migrate over the BGP configuration from a Juniper box to a Cisco router, specifically the BGP filter and policy.

thanks

It may depend upon the specific Cisco router, but there is not a migration from a Juniper SSG class of small business routers to Cisco RV042/082/016 small business routers.

I suspect you will have to set up the Cisco routers independently from the Juniper.

I keep a worksheet of standard settings. The filters the Juniper are more flexible and so they will not all have homes in the small Cisco routers.

The above is based on my experience with both routers in small businesses.

I had a follow up question -

Where do you check with the Juniper SRX router that tells if there is any policy routing such as MED, Local preference.etc.

There should be a tab (left side) on your Juniper setup for Policies. It is in Policies that you set up routing policies.

You need the VPN tab to set up the VPN connection points.

You need the Objects tab to set up Users and things associated with users.

Hi John,

It seems the GUI doesn't work (I tried http and https but none works). Just wondering how I can enable that.

When you put in the external or internal IP address, you should see the following screen.

Netscreen-SSG-Login-Screen
You need to enable remote management, I think.

Google for Juniper Netscreen remote management command line and you should find the Juniper PDF command line reference. The command for remote management is (according to the manual, at the command line interface):

set global enable

I use Juniper Netscreen SSG devices, so make sure you get the manual for SRX
