New MX250

We just received our new MX250 and I need to assign a static IP address to one of the Internet ports. How do I do this?

You can configure a static IP via the local status page. Here is a link to the instructions on how to connect.

Hi @alexi1 , you have two options:


1: use the dedicated management port. Connect via Ethernet to your machine.


2: use any of the LAN ports. Your machine will get an IP via dhcp.


The username you’ll need is the serial of the MX, no password required.

In addition to the already mentioned local status page, there is another way (IMHO much easier):

Connect the second WAN port to your internal Network where DHCP and internet is provided. After the device comes online in the dashboard, you can configure the first WAN-port.
