The purpose of this document is to detail the installation and configuration of Lantronix Local Managers (LM) to manage and facilitate remote connectivity to a Juniper device.
Supports Juniper switches and routers running JunOS version 11 or higher with the Lantronix Local Manager.
Connect a free serial port on the Lantronix to the Juniper's RS-232 console management port with a standard Cat-5 cable.
To configure the Lantronix LM for connection to a Juniper device, navigate to the port that the Juniper is connected to, run the command config init, and follow the prompts as below (substituting your Juniper's IP address for 203.0.113.16):
Important: The Lantronix advanced driver for JunOS will not work with the root console username. To properly configure a Juniper device you must provide a user account that automatically has a "cli" shell, as opposed to a "csh" shell that the root user has.
