Install Unix Package

‎11-25-2019 10:33 AM

Hi Guys ,

 

does Juniper device has restriction on package that could be installed,  I am trying to install Netcat but I get always an error, I am not sure if the error is related to the package :

 

# /usr/sbin/pkg add netcat-1.10_3.txz
usage: /usr/sbin/pkg add <pkg> ...
where <pkg> is a compressed tar file

 

Thank you

The package system is not intended for users to install third party applications. It's used when adding Juniper specific packages or doing software upgrade of Junos itself - so no way of installing eg. netcat on a Juniper device.
