Juniper Dynamic Web VPN for SRX platforms

I had a customer who wanted to have VPN access to their remote office.  They have a SRX210, the lower end SRX platform.  He wanted to use a classic type of client VPN style similar to a ASA with the any connect essentials(which I am not a fan of).  I had never set this up before.. without the power of Google, I would have never known about this.

So with an SRX it includes this beautiful feature called a Dynamic VPN.  A user can connect using theirr web browser to an outside interface / untrust interface.  The prompt will look like the following.

Once the user is logged in the SRX will instruct the user to download a client similar to Junipers SSL VPN client.  Once the file is downloaded it will create a interface on the PC allowing access to that remote subnet.

This is a interesting feature not a whole lot of people knew about including myself until last week.  This is like a watered down version of their SSL VPN which I am a huge fan of.  The SRX210 I was using will allow only 2 users on at one given time with the license otherwise additional licenses will have to be bought.  I could not find anywhere within the SRX that will allow remote authenication via Radius, Active Directory.  Very interesting as it is completely free as it is, its a feature worth checking out.  Here is my config.. atleast as much as I can paste!  I did everything from the CLI.  Reading through the configuration it looks even easier to go web based for this setup.  After my config a link to Junipers KB article about a dynamic VPN.
