Juniper SRX – Setting the Default Static Route


KB ID 0001008 Dtd 13/10/14


It takes me seconds to do this on an ASA, on every occasion I've had to do the same on a Juniper firewall I've had to research how to do it again.

SRX Default Route

Here I'm setting up the 'default' route to the Internet, but the syntax is the same for setting up any static route.


1. Connect to the firewall either by console cable or via SSH, go to CLI mode then configuration mode.
