Issues with logging into EX Virtual Chassis via SSH and HTTP

What needs to be checked if we encounter issues with SSH and HTTP in Juniper Ex?

SSH:

If you encounter issues with users not able to log into the switch using SSH, check the following:

  •     SSH is properly configured. root@EX# set system services ssh
  •     No firewall filters for TCP blocking SSH.  root@EX3# show firewall  
  •     Make sure the directory /var/empty exists.

    %mkdir empty

HTTP/HTTPS:

If you are not able to log in to the switch using HTTP/HTTPS, check the following.

  •     HTTP is properly configured under web management.

root@SW1# set system services web-management http   

  •     No firewall filters blocking http traffic.
  •     Clear the cache in the browser 

The directory structure for HTTP is as below:
