    • There are books about Junos including some Junos/IOS command comparison.
      Or, you can go to Juniper website, there is a online learning section for IOS users.

  4. my junos box doesn’t allow show ethernet-switching table. Am I missing something. I am actually trying to use this command to find out if there are any interfaces operating at half-duplex. Sh interfaces | find Half-Duplex but it won’t show the IP address, on the mac.How do I make a nice list of interfaces operating at Half-Duplex? Thanks!

    • yup… need “show int terse” to match the interface you want.
      I dont know any single command can pull the list out either.

      show int terse | match ge-0/0/0
