Juniper Firewall Basic commands

Juniper Firewall Basic commands

If you like to start working on a hardware firewall I would like to add one thing that your start working on UNIX firewall and make a sound practice of the commands and tricks. Juniper Firewall Basic commands are very much similar to it. If you have a better idea of the UNIX commands and know how to issue a command in UNIX command line then its just a piece of cake to use any firewall of the world. One thing about Juniper firewall is that its totally FreeBSD based firewall so its really easy to start working on it if you know FreeBSD or any other flavor of UNIX. A few days ago one of my client was having some problem with his firewall and I was given the task to look into this matter. I never worked on a hardware firewall from Juniper not even on a router provided by Juniper networks but when I started working, it was not very much difficult to find any data, commands and books about the Juniper networks. Before I logged in, I searched for basic Juniper commands from the web and found on the Juniper website easily in just few minutes and in the very next moment I started working on the firewall. There was nothing unfamiliar to work on a Juniper firewall as I did worked on a FreeBSD firewall.

I know that I am not sharing anything new about Juniper firewall but perhaps someone find these commands useful. These are very basic, simple and easy to follow commands as you can find basic Linux and UNIX commands but they might not work on every Juniper equipment so please visit the juniper website for a detailed command list. I will try to share a book about juniper firewalls and routers later.
