Restrictions for Cisco RFGW-10 GUI

  • Avoid simultaneously starting the GUI client with CPU-intensive operations. This helps reduce the CPU impact on the Cisco RFGW-10 UEQAM supervisor card.
  • Any CPU-intensive or high storage usage applications should be deferred to the network management system (NMS) applications.

Information About Cisco RFGW-10 GUI

The Cisco RFGW-10 GUI is an embedded web application residing in the Cisco RFGW-10 UEQAM chassis. The GUI image (RFGW_GUI.tar) is embedded in the Cisco RFGW-10 IOS-XE image and is installed as part of the IOS-XE image installation. There are no configuration steps for installing this application.

Following are some of its important features:

  • An intuitive interface that combines easy navigation with point-and-click provisioning of services, thereby reducing the complexity of configuring services and features.
  • Support to manage the Cisco RFGW-10 system.
  • A monitoring interface with flexible choice of statistics and graphs.
  • Bulk configuration in a single attempt.

You can access this application through a web browser that has IP connectivity to the chassis. For information on how to access the application, see the “How to Use the Cisco RFGW-10 GUI Tool” section.

How to Use the Cisco RFGW-10 GUI Tool

This section describes how to monitor and configure the Cisco RFGW-10 UEQAM using the Cisco RFGW-10 GUI tool:

Configuring the Cisco RFGW-10 Management Port IP Address

Complete these steps to configure the Cisco RFGW-10 management port IP address.


Step 1 Connect a network cable to the management port located on the front panel of the Cisco RFGW-10 chassis.

Step 2 Telnet and log in using your credentials.

Step 3 Verify that the system has IP interfaces that are not assigned to an IP address.

Step 4 Assign the Cisco RFGW-10 IP address to an IP interface.

Step 5 Ensure that the selected IP interface is up and active.


 

Configuring VRF on a FastEthernet

To configure virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) on a FastEthernet interface, use the following commands:

Router> enable
Router# configure terminal
Router(config)# interface fastethernet number
Router(config-if)# ip vrf forwarding vrf-name
Router(config-vrf)# ip address mgmt-ip-address ip-address-mask
Router(config-vrf)# speed auto
Router(config-vrf)# duplex auto
Router(config-vrf)# end

 

Following is a sample output of VRF on a FastEthernet interface:

Router# show running-config interface fa1

Building configuration...

Current configuration : 126 bytes

!

interface FastEthernet1

ip vrf forwarding Mgmt-vrf

ip address 10.78.179.189 255.255.255.128

speed auto

duplex auto

end

Configuring Management IP VRF

To configure default gateway for the management VRF for establishing connection, use the following commands:

Router> enable
Router# configure terminal
Router(config)# ip vrf vrf-name
Router(config-vrf)# ip vrf forwarding vrf-name
Router(config-vrf)# ip route vrf vrf-name destination-prefix destination-prefix-mask default-gateway
Router(config-vrf)# end
 

Following is a sample output of management VRF on a FastEthernet interface:

Router# show running-config interface fa1

ip vrf Mgmt-vrf
ip vrf forwarding Mgmt-vrf
ip route vrf Mgmt-vrf 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.78.179.129
 

Enabling the IOS HTTP Server in Cisco RFGW-10 UEQAM

To enable the IOS HTTP server in Cisco RFGW-10 UEQAM, use the following commands in global configuration mode:

Router(config)# ip http server
Router(config)# ip http authentication local

Configuring Cisco RFGW-10 UEQAM with a Local Username and Password

To configure the Cisco RFGW-10 UEQAM with a local username and password, use the following command in global configuration mode:

Router(config)# username name [privilege level] password encryption-type password
 

The level is a number between 0 and 15 that specifies the privilege level for the user. You can specify up to sixteen privilege levels, using numbers 0 through 15. Level 1 is normal EXEC-mode user privileges and 15 is the enable privileges.


Note The Cisco RFGW-10 GUI allows only privilege level 15 users to log in to the GUI application.


The encryption-type is a single-digit number that defines whether the text immediately following is encrypted, and, if so, what type of encryption is used. Currently the defined encryption types are 0 and 7; 0 means that the text which follows immediately is not encrypted, and 7 means that the text is encrypted using a Cisco-defined encryption algorithm.

If the HTTP server is not enabled in the Cisco RFGW-10 UEQAM chassis, the GUI does not display any information because there is no communication with the chassis.

Connecting the Cisco RFGW-10 Using a Web Browser

You can connect the Cisco RFGW-10 to a web browser. Open a web browser and enter the management port IP address ( http://<rfgw-ip-address> ). The Cisco RFGW-10 Summary page is displayed.

Using Cisco RFGW-10 GUI Home Page

You can do the following on the Cisco RFGW-10 GUI home page:

  • Visit the different monitoring and configuration pages by clicking the desired page title on the banner. See the Information About Cisco RFGW-10 GUI section for more information on these pages.

Figure 95 GUI Banner

 

  • Save the current configuration by clicking Save on the banner.
  • Reload the current page by clicking Refresh on the banner. This resolves page loading issues such as page design, script errors and so on.
  • Reload the GUI application by clicking Restart on the banner. This populates the current chassis configuration.

Note You need to restart the GUI by clicking Restart when the QAM carriers are downgraded or upgraded, a redundancy group configuration is changed, or after a switchover.


  • See release information by clicking About on the banner.

Troubleshooting Tips

Symptom Unable to connect to the web interface.

Possible Cause The Cisco RFGW-10 IP address is not reachable.

Recommended Action Access the application using a web browser that has IP connectivity to the chassis. The assigned IP address should be reachable from the client system, otherwise check the IP address configuration.

Possible Cause The Cisco RFGW-10 IP address interface is not up.

Recommended Action Make sure that the assigned IP address IP interface is up and active.

Possible Cause Incomplete HTTP server start-up or is not enabled.

Recommended Action Ensure that the Cisco RFGW-10 system boots successfully by verifying the prompt mode in the console. Connect to the web client after verifying this status. To enable the HTTP server on your system, use the ip http server or ip http secure-server command in global configuration mode. To disable the HTTP server, use the no form of this command.

Possible Cause Incorrect URL.

Recommended Action The GUI server and the web interface communicate through HTTP/HTTPS. Ensure that the URL protocol and IP address are correct. The URL is either http://<rfgw-ip-address> or https://<rfgw-ip-address> . Include the portnumber if it is configured.

Symptom Unable to change the default port 80 occupied by the Cisco RFGW-10 GUI.

Recommended Action Do the following:

1. Specify the port number to be used by the HTTP server using the ip http port portnumber command in global configuration mode. Return the port number to its default using the no form of this command. The valid range is from 1025 to 65535.

2. Change the URL to http://<rfgw-ip-address>:portnumber .

Symptom Five small square boxes are displayed at the top of a blank page while trying to connect to the web interface.

Possible Cause The URL used to connect to the web interface is http://<rfgw-ip-address> whereas a secure connection is required.

Recommended Action Use https://<rfgw-ip-address> URL to connect to the web interface.

Symptom Forgot password for logging into the web interface.

Recommended Action Contact your administrator to generate the credentials.

Symptom The web interface display is distorted.

Possible Cause Browser is not compatible.

Recommended Action See the “Connecting the Cisco RFGW-10 Using a Web Browser” section.

Possible Cause JavaScript is not enabled.

Recommended Action Enable javascript in your browser.

Symptom Alignment in web interface is not proper.

Possible Cause Browser cache issue.

Recommended Action Close all browser instances, clear the cache and cookies, and then connect to a new instance. If the problem persists, contact the Cisco RFGW-10 GUI support personnel.

Symptom Unable to view the GUI.

Possible Cause Browser is not compatible.

Recommended Action See the “Connecting the Cisco RFGW-10 Using a Web Browser” section.

Possible Cause The display setting is not compatible.

Recommended Action Set the display resolution to 1024 x 768 or higher.

Symptom Unable to log into the GUI.

Possible Cause The user level is not assigned.

Recommended Action Assign a user level for the credential and then log into the GUI.

Possible Cause The user level assigned is not sufficient or correct.

Recommended Action If you have a valid user ID and password but are still unable to log in even after multiple attempts, ask your administrator to review your user level assignment.

Symptom A slow network response or a script not responding error message is displayed after logging into the system.

Possible Cause Performance issues.

Recommended Action Click Continue if you get the script not responding error message asking if you wish to continue or cancel. After sometime, the GUI page is displayed. Such messages indicate a slow network link between your system and the server. Ping the server to check the round trip response time. Consider using a caching HTTP proxy to improve speed and reduce network traffic.

Symptom Common browser error messages.

Possible Cause These are some of the possible causes:

HTTP status code 401—Indicates that authentication is required, and has failed or not yet been provided.

HTTP status code 403—Indicates that a request is not authorized. Perhaps the current user does not have the required permissions.

HTTP status code 404—Indicates that the requested URL cannot be found. Check if the action names are spelled correctly.

HTTP status code 500—Indicates that a server error occurred while processing the request.

Recommended Action If the problem persists, contact the Cisco RFGW-10 GUI support personnel.

Symptom GUI shows incorrect output.

Recommended Action Verify the output on the chassis console using the appropriate command. If there is a mismatch in the output, contact the Cisco RFGW-10 GUI support personnel.

Symptom Incorrect supervisor card, line card, or QAM channel information is displayed.

Possible Cause The QAM carrier was downgraded or upgraded, a redundancy group configuration was changed, a switch over occurred, or the supervisor card or line card was removed, inserted or shut down.

Recommended Action Reload the GUI by clicking Restart on the banner to populate the current chassis configuration.
