Re: [HELP] Cisco 1811 is crashing

The fan noise from the J2300 is a bit of a problem. Its got a very high pitched whiney fan in it, and it seems to like speeding up and slowing down a lot so it gets a little annoying after a while. I tried running it with the cover off, but no difference. :-/

But since its a generic x86 (Celeron in fact) based box with a run of the mill 3-wire fan, I could potentially find a slower speed quieter fan to clip on top of the heat sink. Maybe even one with blinky lights to "pimp my Juniper." :-P

As for the SRX instead of M7i, the low end SRX's dont do logical systems, which is the feature I am after - support starts from the SRX3400 it seems, according to this document I am readin. You also need licenses to run them on SRX but not on the M series.

Im looking at co-lo'ing them at work in the comms room instead of home, so I dont think the fan noise will be an issue. That way I can run them all the time, with console access. Unfortunately only console access via the corporate console server on the corporate network, but hey, cant have everything.

This fan noise issue is one of the reason why I prefer to have SRX 100 or 210 instead of J series as home lab equipment. All Juniper JUNOS features are pretty much condensed into the same JUNOS code. So regardless of the appliance, you still have the same thing. As example, you could mock up L2VPN on SRX 100 unlike Cisco where you need to have ASR series to do so
