How to Access your SRX via the GUI after configuring Dynamic VPN

Hello,

 

It is a commom misconception thinking that as soon as you enable the SRX Remote Access VPN on an interface you will not have access to it via the GUI.

This happens because by default when you attempt to connect you will be redirected to the Dynamic VPN portal.

 

If you want to be able to make this happen (Access the GUI) whenever Dynamic VPN is configured you have 2 options:

  1. Enable the GUI on a Non-VPN interface
  2. Configure your SRX to allow GUI access on the VPN interface by going to a specific URL.

 

The command to enable the second option is the following

Julio@iNetworks# set system services web-management management-url GUI-Only

Julio@iNetworks#commit

 

After this change is taken by the SRX you can navigate to https://your-SRX-IP/GUI-Only and you will be presented with the regular GUI access.

 

Hope you like this mini tutorial.
