Format: Paperback
Used to FortiOS as a firewall/routing platform but now migrating to a Juniper SSG-320M 1Gb device so needed to learn about the differences and what's unique to Juniper and ScreenOS.

Great book, both for reference and also for a getting started guide. Comprehensive without too much low-level technical detail, although there are some areas which are obviously intended for networking newbies rather than just Juniper ones. (e.g. about TCP/IP in general)

It doesn't list the SSG-320M as hardware though - which annoyed me. (As that'w what we brought)

Removing the newbie networking stuff and updating the hardware reference guides (which isn't a big thing if I'm honest) were done then I'd give it a 5/5 - excellent book.

This book was just what i wanted. Covers load balancing, high availability, in easy step by step methods.

I'd recommend this to any beginners or anyone who uses juniper netscreen routers and wanted to find out the inner details which you might have not entirely noticed.

I am from a firewall background, but not necessarily Juniper. I wanted a book that could give me a good overview, brush me up for my JNCIA exam and also provide a good practical reference for working with these firewalls. It does all of those things.

Would recommend.

Broad coverage, but limited by production nits 1 Jan. 2007
By jose_monkey_org - Published on
Format: Paperback
Juniper NetScreen firewalls have become a market leader for performance and features, and it's no wonder: they really are that good. As such, more people need to learn how to use them and configure them to do a wide range of activities. With this in mind, "Configuring Juniper Networks NetScreen & SSG Firewalls" attempts to fill that gap.

This book is similar to the well known and respected books from Cisco Press, and is basically a large scale product manual. As such, it's important to compare it both to the Cisco Press books in terms of production quality and clarity, and also to the docs that Juniper provides for free on their website. When you make this comparison, you find that "Configuring Juniper Networks NetScreen & SSG Firewalls" comes up short in both areas. That's not to say it isn't trying, but there are enough problems to make it just an average book.

Chapter 1 is the common basic firewall and Internet threat overview. Nothing too groundbreaking, and probably included for completeness. Chapter 2 is a nice overview of the Juniper Netscreen product line, and some of the basic concepts and technologies within them. Again, useful and probably included for completeness.

Chapter 3 covers "Deploying Juniper firewalls", focusing on basic options and introducing you to the web-based UI. Most of the material here is available in the online help or the free Juniper docs. Most of the instructions in this chapter are clear. Chapter 4 focuses on policy configuration and uses both the UI and the CLI to do so. Again, stuff that you can pick up with the free docs (granted the CLI help isn't as rich as docs, but the help is there nonetheless, especially for the UI), and again the presentation and examples are pretty clear.

Chapter 5 covers advanced policy configuration ideas, but focuses on bandwidth management. Some decent material here, but some of the CLI stuff gets a bit long and you can start to drown in it if you're not careful. Chapter 6 covers user authentication, and by this point the book (which, admittedly, is a reference book at heart) gets to be mind numbing. I started noticing some production errors here, usually in the typeface and presentation of the material. Some of the "settings" stuff gets to be a bit unclear to me at times, perhaps I need to study it more closely.

Chapter 7 covers routing (ie RIP, OSPF, BGP) and virtual routers. The size of this chapter and its examples is huge (100 pages), and if you're not careful you'll go blind. Again, this doesn't have much over the free Juniper docs, which are a bit better organized. Chapter 8 is a bit more managable (50 pages or so) and covers address translation (NAT, PAT, etc). at times it just becomes a series of examples, but the presentation is similar to the previous chapters. Not much over the free Juniper docs. Chapter 9 is another similar chapter and covers transparent mode. Decent presentation and examples, a few nits here and there that I find in this set of chapters.

Chapter 10 covers attack detection and defense, and I think the material is better organized than the more traditional networking materials. The examples are fewer and more focused.

Chapter 11 covers VPNs and was surprisingly short. The configuration stuff is either surprisingly simple and foolproof to set up or this chapter was very hit and run. The screenshots in this chapter are probably the weakest in the whole book, but in general they suffice. I'd probably say hit the Juniper docs, instead. Chapter 12, covering high availability (failover, redundancy, etc) is better, and has more examples and material. I think this is one of the better chapters balancing presentation and examples.

Chapter 13 covers troubleshooting, but I would have expected a bit more material. Perhaps if you pair it with the previous chapters on specific matters and features it would help. Chapter 14 ends the book with a tidy, concise and pretty clear unit on virtual systems (ie sub-interfaces).

Before you buy this book, you should look at the free documentation for ScreenOS and many Juniper products. I suspect that you'll find that their quality meets what you want, and they're clear and concise. That said, review this book (see if you can look inside and flip through it), seeing if it's worth the price for you. "Configuring Juniper Networks NetScreen & SSG Firewalls" attempts to be the authoritative source of information on NetScreen devices and does OK, but there are enough nits in the presentation and production to warrant any potential buyers to really compare it to the existing docs.

Broad coverage - poor in the details 11 Jun. 2007
By PBrontvain - Published on
Format: Paperback
Definitively one of the worst technical publications I've ever bought.

This book will be useful only if you want to gain a general understanding on how netscreen firewalls work, but under no circumstance this should be considered a technical reference, or configuration guide.

HUGE lack of examples, and those present are extremely simplistic. Just driving through clicking on the NetscreenOS interface is not an example. The book is also plagued of grammatical inconsistencies.

After having read each one of its 743 pages I'm still on the same place I was before starting.

If you need a little more detail on what's behind the NetScreen & SSG architecture, use the Reference Guide from Juniper (more than 2,000 pages of rich examples, scenarios, and explanations... and the best... FREE!!!). That's exactly what I'm doing now.

To the publishers: thank you for making me post my first review ever.
Not bad 10 April 2008
By Brian Saloum - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was fortunate enough to work with one of the contributing authors on an implementation and while the book is an excellent resource for the web UI and CLI, I was rather disappointed that the NSM was completely ignored. Yes, I know, not in the scope of the book, but if one is managing a large juniper firewall infrastructure centralized management pretty important.
While it's not all encompassing, I recommend it to round off any juniper firewall reference library.

I have inherited a network full of these and need to set up redundancy, backups and document the settings. This is a great book - helped me with my immediate needs and I will read most of it in entirety eventually.

OK book based on the lack of alternatives 4 Nov. 2007
By A. Charles - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book broadly covers the Juniper NetScreen and SSG firewalls. However, where it falls down is the small amount of examples given, and the technical errors in the book.

Having worked with the Juniper devices over the past few months and through reading this book it is obvious that there should have been a bit more attention paid to the editing as there are sentances and examples with the wrong words used.

Ie. using the word zone instead of interface
