I have an old Juniper SRX-100. I want to re-purpose it for my network. I need to extend the network in a new location, so I need more ports. I could use a simple switch, but I have this laying around.

  1. The Firmware is really old. Should I upgrade to the latest release (12.3X48-D found at https://support.juniper.net/support/downloads/?f=srx)
  2. I cannot figure out how to use the J-Web to disable DHCP. I have a router at the head of my network. I don't really need more routers handing out addresses.
  • How do I configure so it does not hand out addresses on any of the ports?
  • Do I need to configure a port specifically to be the relay up to the router that is providing DHCP?

    If you need a switch, then buy a switch. Attempting to use this as a dumb switch is just going to be a headache. – Ricky Jul 15 '20 at 1:07

Don't use obsolete or ill-suited devices. Just buy a switch.

    Understood. Just needed an outside opinion. Seemed like a square peg in a round hole at first. – user3533030 Jul 16 '20 at 0:52
