Configuring Serial Interface WAN and LAN for SSG Firewall/VPN Products



Article ID: KB9398 KB Last Updated: 24 Aug 2010Version: 4.0
The Juniper Networks Secure Services Gateway Series (SSG) represents a new class of purpose-built security appliance that delivers a mix of high performance, security and LAN/WAN connectivity for regional and branch office deployments.  Prior to the introduction of the SSG Series these sites would normally employ an Ethernet-based NetScreen Firewall and a separate WAN routing device for connectivity to the Telco or ISP.  The SSG Series combines the two into one platform with the same functionality and security as the rest of the NetScreen Family of firewall/VPN products.

This document gives a typical deployment example for the SSG with a WAN interface.  In this example we are utilizing a T1 for Telco connectivity and PPP for the data link encapsulation.  This example also assumes that you are given a WAN IP and also a public IP subnet range.  This document also includes a typical MIP scenario using one of the available public IPs mapping to a private IP on the Trust zone.  And finally this document includes an example of how to configure a VPN using the public IP of the SSG as the peer endpoint.

The document is not intended to show all possible configuration examples.  Nor will this document cover extensive details about VPNs, MIPs or policies.  More information regarding these topics are available in our Concepts and Examples Reference Guides.
