For those of you that have had to troubleshoot Junos Pulse issues you will have no doubt asked yourself where to start. The client has barely any information, showing just the connection profile and the status of it – connected or not. NetConnect had far better visibility of the technical information as it showed the DHCP allocated address, sent/recieved bytes, routes etc. Junos has an equivalent but it is, as far as I know, completely undocumented.

You can find it on Windows machine under “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Juniper Networks\JamUI”. The Pulse Diagnostics application within than directory can be run by firing up pdv.exe.

For obvious reasons I have removed the server URL / IP from the below screenshot below. It’s a great tool if you need to know any of the technical information around the pulse client.
