I have a very straightforward question. Unfortunately, its so simple, that I have struggled to confirm the answer and the Juniper KB stops short of answering it when telling you how to set up telnet.
I have a need to write a script for backing up many types of products for end customers. While many of them are accessible in-house, we do not have any Juniper Switches to use in development before doing site testing. On all Cisco Switches, there is never a username required when telnetting into the box. Only a password prompt is used. So the script accounts for this.
However, I cannot confirm for sure whether Juniper switches work the same way. Does a username prompt appear in Juniper Switches when telnetting in (ssh not required at this time)? Is there a way to configure one (meaning I need to plan for both scenarios)?
While I'm at it, this question SHOULD be easy to google, but I might as well ask it. While I already found the command to back up a config (save ftp://user:passwd@host/filename), do you have to be in "enable" mode or can you do this immediately after logging in? I'm guessing you would need to be in "enable" mode. Its frustrating not having a box to play with yet, but hopefully someone here can ease the pain.
