My current networking lab setup for testing a new network design including OSPF, BGP & IPsec route based VPNs.
From top to bottom:
As you work with them everyday, i dont suppose you have had any wierd crashes over the last two days?
2 of my clustered ssg140's died at different sites over the last two days.
I have heard of one other person who this has happened to.
thanks1: Comment Link
No issues, although most of the devices in production are now SRXs.
Maybe it was this SSL DDOS bug?
What kind of crashes?2: Comment Link
Yes..that was it.
So nothing i can do except wait for an update and turn off all external management.
Would you recommend replacing the ssg5 with SRX's?
Thanks for your response.3: Comment Link
I wouldn't have external management enabled anyway, I would have a VPN to the remote device or something similar setup.
We've been replacing SSGs with SRXs recently but there are still some things that the SSG does a touch better.
The WebUI in the SRX isn't good, but the CLI is great.
We are still hitting some bugs in SRX code that causes issues for specific sites.
The SSG is end of line, it won't be long before Juniper stop releasing updates for it completely (and you don't get new features now anyway).
It really does depend on your requirements. Overall I prefer the SRX now.4: Comment Link
How do you like that Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite? I'm thinking of getting one for my lab setup. The price looks good.

The EdgeRouter is great. You really cannot beat it for the price.
I still prefer JunOS CLI, but the EdgeRouter is really fast when hardware offloading is used.6: Comment Link
