How to add MIP address to NSM Server so that it is accessible from the Internet.
NSM GUI located off the Internet can't connect to NSM Server on the internal network:
NSM Server (
Internal network
 Juniper FW


(MIP is created on the Juniper FW mapping the public IP to the Internal IP
A MIP and policy is created on the Juniper firewall, KB10953, and the NSM GUI can ping the NSM Server.
However, the NSM GUI can't connect to the NSM Server.

In addition to the steps in KB10953, the Mapped IP needs to be configured on the NSM Server.  To add a MIP address on NSM Server, follow these steps:

1. From a NSM GUI on the Internal network, login to NSM Gui.

2. Go to Server Manager > Servers > Device Server (Server_0) > General Tab

3. Add the MIP Address, i.e.   Devices on Internet will communicate with NSM on this IP Address.
