Given an oldish Juniper Netscreen device running ScreenOS 6.2 (Juniper NS5GT-ADSL), would it support IPCOMP payload compression (RFC 2393) in IPSEC tunnels? If so, any reference on how to set it up?

I wish I still had access to my old 5GT to verify, but I don't believe so (and hence not a real answer).… doesn't show such an option, and I don't recall any cli command that referenced ipcomp or compression at all for IPSEC tunnels on a Netscreen. – TheCleaner May 24 '13 at 18:21
@TheCleaner thanks for pointing me to the guide. – the-wabbit May 24 '13 at 19:36

The current ScreenOS CLI reference guide for IPv4 is not documenting much compression-related in general or IPCOMP-specific commands in particular. Looks like it is not supported.
