Re: 3G USB modem on SRX devices

Hi Andy,

 

No, SRX 220 doesn't support 3G modem plugged in directly into the router.

 

For anything above SRX210, Juniper advised to use the CX 111 for 3G connectivity.

 

 

Cheers,

Sari

Re: 3G USB modem on SRX devices

Hi Roy,

 

You need to configure the following command before plugging in the USB modem into the router: set chassis routing-engine usb-wwan port 0

 

Commit the config and then you may see the error messages that you described in your second post.

 

Reboot the router with the USB modem plugged in.

 

Once the router comes back, check that the interfaces are up:


root@SRX100> show interfaces terse | match "cl|dl"
cl-0/0/8                up    up
cl-0/0/8.0              up    up
dl0                     up    up
dl0.0                   up    up   inet     1.1.1.1       --> 0/0

 

root@SRX100> show modem wireless interface cl-0/0/8

Please note that I am using Junos 12.1R4.7. Another Junos version that I know is working is Junos 11.4R2+.

 

The configuration would be exactly the same as what's in the configuration guide.

But here it is for reference (i'm using dialer-watch in this case. You can use dialer filter, if you like):

 

set interfaces cl-0/0/8 dialer-options pool 1 priority 1

set interfaces dl0 unit 0 ppp-options chap default-chap-secret "$secreTstuff"
set interfaces dl0 unit 0 ppp-options chap local-name "aaaaa@domain.com"
set interfaces dl0 unit 0 ppp-options chap passive
set interfaces dl0 unit 0 family inet negotiate-address
set interfaces dl0 unit 0 dialer-options pool 1
set interfaces dl0 unit 0 dialer-options dial-string 1234
set interfaces dl0 unit 0 dialer-options watch-list 2.2.2.2/32 <-- watching a non-existent route
set interfaces dl0 unit 0 dialer-options deactivation-delay 30

 

set routing-options static route 0.0.0.0/0 next-hop dl0.0

 

Hope this helps.

Re: 3G USB modem on SRX devices

What is the status of the dl0 and the cl-0/0/8 interfaces?

Please do a show interface terse | match "cl|dl"

Please do a show modem wireless interface cl-0/0/8 as well
