[SRX/J-series] Which ports can be used by Junos Pulse for dynamic VPN?



Article ID: KB23720 KB Last Updated: 04 Mar 2017Version: 3.0

This article provides information about the ports that can be used by Junos Pulse for dynamic VPN.


Can any other port, apart from port 443, be configured for dynamic VPN?

  • No other port can be configured for dynamic VPN (initial web-auth). For dynamic VPN requests, the JSRX device has to listen on port 443.

  • JSRX dynamic VPN client (Junos Pulse) initiates a connection on port 443 for web-auth, and when web-auth is passed, it starts the phase-1 negotiation and xauth process.

  • The Junos Pulse client does not have an option to configure the port on which it has to send the request; it is hard coded.

  • If a customer needs the option to configure dynamic VPN on any other port apart from port 443, the customer must contact the Juniper Accounts team to file an Enhancement Request.
