WX 15, WX 20 and WXC 250 Quick Start
Welcome to the Juniper WX 15, WX 20, and WXC 250 application
acceleration platforms quick start. These one rack-unit (1U) network
infrastructure devices are deployed on the LAN side of the edge router.
This quick start card describes how to install the WX/WXC in the data
path between a switch and a router. To install the WX/WXC “off-path”
(connected only to the switch or router), refer to the WX/WXC
Operator’s Guide.
If you have any problems with the licensing process, open a
support case using the Case Management link at
http://www.juniper.net/support/. To call from the United States,
Canada, or Mexico, dial 1-888-314-JTAC. To call from other
locations, check the list of local support centers at

Before You Begin
Installation
„
Inspect the package contents. Refer to the package contents
document enclosed with the product.
Perform the following steps to install your WX 15, WX 20 or WXC 250
platform:
„
Ensure sufficient power is available. Supply circuits should be
protected by a 15 A or 20 A circuit breaker.
1. Set up the chassis.
„
Ensure a minimum of six inches clearance in the front and back of
the chassis. For a WX 15, provide three inches of clearance on
both sides of the chassis to allow cooling air to be drawn through
the side panels.
„
Verify that all firewalls between WX devices allow traffic on:
„
TCP/UDP ports 3577 and 3578
„
IP payload compression protocol (protocol number 108).
„
Identify a 10/100 Ethernet LAN port that transmits data to your
WAN router. This port is typically from an aggregation switch, or
from another LAN device connected directly to the router.
„
Obtain a license key. The license key determines the throughput
levels for the device, and properly registers the product. To obtain
a permanent license key, go to:
„
For rack mount installation, install the supplied brackets, front
panel forward, to the sides of the device (Figure 1).
„
For desktop installation, install the rubber stands in the
recessed areas on the bottom of the chassis (pre-installed on
the WX 15 platform).
NOTE: Do not connect the power cable until Step 4.

If you operate the platform at its base speed, only the serial
number is needed to generate a permanent license. If you
purchased license upgrades, you will need the Authorization Code
Certificate that was emailed to you in electronic PDF format.

3. Verify connectivity across the WX/WXC device.
2. Connect the network cables.
„
Locate the cable that connects from the switch (or other
aggregating device) to the router.
„
Disconnect this cable from the router port and connect it to
the LOCAL port on the WX/WXC device.
„
Connect a straight-through cable (not provided) from the
router port to the REMOTE port on the WX/WXC device.
See Figure 2.
Figure 2.
One method of testing connectivity between devices is to Ping a
host on the remote side of the device from a host on the local side
of the device.
NOTE: If you are not able to verify connectivity on both sides of the
device, do not proceed to the next step. Ensure that you are using
the correct cables (crossover vs. straight-through), and verify that
there is network connectivity before applying power.
4. Connect the power.
Connecting network cables to a WX/WXC device
Connect the power cable to the back of the chassis, and then
connect the other end of the power cable to your local power
source (Figure 3).
Router (remote device)
NOTE: The power usage is 50 Watts Max or 170 BTU/hr for the
WX 15, and 150 Watts Max or 510 BTU/hr for the WX 20 and
WXC 250.

5. Configure network settings.
Connect an ANSI-compatible terminal to the serial port, and use a
terminal emulation program (e.g., HyperTerminal) to log in to the
CLI (Figure 4).
Figure 4.
„
Finally, type the default gateway for this device and then press
Enter.
„
Type save-config and type y to confirm. You can safely bypass
the other configuration questions at this time.
NOTE: By default, the 10/100 interfaces are set to auto-negotiate

the speed and duplex mode. However, you may want to set the
interface speed and duplex mode manually. The LOCAL port
settings should match the interface settings of the switch, and the
REMOTE port settings should match the interface settings of the
router.
6. Check the LEDs next to the 10/100 Ethernet ports.

Quick Setup
After powering on the device and assigning IP parameters, the next
step is to log in to the Web console and run the Quick Setup program.
The first time you log in to the Web console, the Quick Setup program
starts automatically and guides you through initial configuration
options for the device.
For more information about Demo Mode, refer to the Operator’s
Guide.
„
If you select Active Mode, click Next to continue. If you select
Demo Mode, click Next, and then click Finish.
3. Set the time.
„
Enter the current date and time or, if your network uses an
NTP server for time settings, select Use NTP Server and enter
the IP address of the NTP server in the Primary field. A
secondary NTP server is optional.
To log in to the Web console and run Quick Setup, follow these steps:
„
Select the local time zone for the device.
1. From a workstation within your network, start your
Web browser and enter the following URL:
„
Click Next to continue.
You can log in to the Web console from any workstation within your
network. The Web console supports Microsoft Internet Explorer
version 6.0. Data is securely transmitted through HTTPS.
4. Designate a registration server.
https://(ip address of the WX device)
One device must be designated as the Registration Server.
„
If the Security Alert dialog box appears, click Yes to proceed.
„
In the Login page, type admin for the user name and juniper
for the password. Click Login.
2. Select an operating mode.
„
If this device is not the registration server, enter the IP
address and password of the current (or future) registration
server in the appropriate fields. This device will not process
data until the registration server is configured.
„
To designate this device as the registration server, select
Make this device the Registration Server, and enter the
registration server password in both fields.
A device can run in Active mode or Demo Mode.
„
„
Active Mode—Device is actively reducing data, accelerating
TCP applications, and managing bandwidth.
Demo Mode—Device is operating passively. It can calculate
potential data compression statistics for all traffic, individual
applications, and specific remote subnets; however, the
actual traffic is not affected.
NOTE: To use Demo Mode, the device’s Local interface must be
connected to a mirrored port on the switch, and the Remote
interface must be disconnected. If you have installed the device
inline, do not select Demo Mode as data will be dropped.
The registration server password authenticates the devices in a
community, and should be different from the administrator
password.
„
Click Next to continue.
5. Enter a license key.
By default, each device has a 30-day evaluation license. When the
evaluation license expires, data will pass through the device
without any processing.
„
If you have a permanent license key, select Enter license key
now, and enter the key in the License key field.
„
Click Next, and then click Finish.
