1. Topology

PC with ip address 192.168.2.20 is using browser to access JunOS Space (192.168.2.72 - Web GUI Interface eth0.0 IP address).
JunOS Space is using Device Management Interface eth3 (172.17.3.70) to manage vSRX through vSRX's ge-0/0/1.





2. Download Firefly Perimeter (vSRX)

If you have license, you could download Firefly Perimeter from Juniper Supprt Site. For 60 days evaluation version, please download from here.

You can use an evaluation license to explore the Firefly Host product. The evaluation product is fully functional, and it has an embedded thirty-day license. This license will be removed after you save your first purchased license information in the wizard.

If no purchases license information is saved, after 30 days, the status turns Red for Firefly Host VM, IDS and AV and says License Expired. Also, every twenty four hours, a high security alert is displayed saying The 30 Day trial period has expired. A purchased license is required to be input in Settings->Status & License. However, no functionality is blocked and the system continues to work as before.



3. Deploy OVF Template in ESXi 5.5

Select junos-vsrx-12.1X47-D20.7-domestic.ova. After deployment, you could check settings and add more interface as you needed.
