Juniper in GNS3

Hi, i'm CCNP level in Cisco and I have just got a new job where almost the entire estate is Juniper so i NEED to get up on my Juniper skills and start labbing the way I've always done with Cisco products.

To best go about this from layer 2 switches to routers and firewalls what are my best bet for downloading what images to run in GNS3?

I've looked and come across the SRXv that is a firewall? But then I've read that it can do everything from access layer switches to acting as a firewall?

Are there any other great sites out there to such as networklessons.com (for Cisco) that apply to Juniper?, that site helped me alot with my CCNA & P...

Thanks again everyone!

    HI all,

    Not sure if this section gets much views, i have same question as Robbo777

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to install Juniper router/switches in GNS3 using VMWARE or Virtual box....

    Have googled lots and some of the links are dead ends. Any help appreciated.

    As I don't work with Juniper products take my words with a grain of salt, but here goes:  search for Juniper Olive.  It "might" be what you are looking for.  At the least, it may give you further direction.

    Out of curiosity, have you been to the Juniper training website?  They might have some tools/videos/etc. that might be more up-to-date and useful.

    HI Stryder

    I actually have seberal routers running now which seem to be smooth. I am still hunting a switch image tho. 

    I have browsed the juniper site but no one links to a way to get a home lab up n running unless its with real equipment, TBH my work have already told me i have a bundle of junipers i can take which will probably be a week or two more. Just like having GNS3 lab as its fast to fire up when i have a spare 30-60mins. 

    Thanks for your help tho :D
