New and Changed Information

This section contains new information about Cisco CP, and any information about Cisco CP that has changed.

This section contains the following parts:

New and Changed Features

New Hardware Support

New and Changed Features

Cisco CP 2.2 supports the following new features:

3G Feature Enhancements - In addition to supporting HWIC—3G—HSPA, HWIC—3G—HSPA—A, HWIC—3G—HSPA—G, and PCEX—3G—HSPA—x for 88xG series ISRs, Activation command change without SID and NID, ESN format, and PPP PDP are supported in Cisco CP 2.2

Cisco Unity Express configuration - Cisco CP has disabled automatic initialization of Cisco Unity Express 8.x. Instead, you can use the Cisco Unity Express Configuration screen to configure Call Agent, hostname, domain name, DNS IP address, time zone, and NTP.

Conferencing Enhancements - Earlier, Cisco CP supported configuring ad-hoc conferencing. In Cisco CP 2.2 MeetMe conferencing is also supported.

Content Filtering Enhancements - The status of content filtering license activation and digital certificate is displayed before you launch the wizard. The two types of content filtering are category based filtering and web sense or secure computing.

Demo Mode - Click the Cisco Configuration Professional (Demo) option in the Start menu to launch demo mode. The dashboard is populated with three devices. The devices supported are 800 series, ISR-G2 with licensing, and 1861 wireless. You can discover any or all of the three devices. You cannot create, edit, or delete community or add a new device to a community in demo mode.

Dial Plan Enhancements - Earlier Cisco CP could only read dial peers created through Cisco CP. In Cisco CP 2.2, the dial plan feature can handle all types and combinations of dial plans configured by you.

EnergyWise - The EnergyWise feature allows you to:

Modify power levels on specific hardware modules or components.

Schedule capabilities where the user can change the power level on a one-time basis or maintain a recurrent schedule.

Assign a device to a domain specifying EnergyWise attributes.

Perform interface-level power configuration.

Firewall Enhancements

Support SIP/H323 Pass through

The following enhancements are supported in Cisco CP 2.2:

Configuring firewall for SIP Application Inspection and configuring rate-limit feature for SIP messages. Configuring firewall for inspection of H.323v4 Annex E and Annex G packets and configuring rate-limit feature for H.323 messages. Even if firewall is configured in the device, we can delete the policies associated with the firewall and switch to the other type firewall.

Configuring firewall to support inspection of locally generated or locally terminated SCCP traffic.

GUI Enhancements - Earlier, only Zone Firewall user interface was displayed if the IOS image supported Zone Firewall. In Cisco CP 2.2, it is possible to switch from Zone Firewall to Classic Firewall and vice versa. If a firewall is configured on the router, you can delete the policies associated with that firewall and switch to the other firewall. In Cisco CP 2.2 it is also possible to list the protocols in the Firewall Rule user interface by alphabet or by category.

IOS IPS Enhancements - Cisco CP detects the status of IPS license activation and allows you to load the signature packages on the router. Cisco CP provides the URL from which to download the license and the path for the license feature.


Note Only licensed signature packages require the license to load the signature.


Module Management Enhancements - SRE/SM support for WAN Optimization and Service Module support for Video Surveillance are provided in Cisco CP 2.2.

Rollback Feature - Rollback feature is used to revert the entire set of CLIs executed as part of one configuration and restore the router to the state seen before executing the set of CLIs. The restore happens irrespective of whether the commands were successfully pushed to the device or not. Rollback is available for offline-online transition, template, and bulk import features. Rollback is not available for Cisco Unity Express.

WAN Optimization Enhancements - Earlier basic discovery and configuration support was provided for WAAS modules. In Cisco CP 2.2, initial setup and application management for WAAS modules are also supported.

New Hardware Support

The new devices supported are:

CISCO1905

CISCO1921

CISCO1941W-C/K9

Cisco CP and Internet Explorer 8

In some systems (Windows XP and Windows Vista), with IE8 installed, Cisco CP may not work as expected. This is due to a reported IE 8 caching issue.

IE8 reinstall or clearing the cache does not help. Any Flash based application like Cisco CP will see this issue.

A workaround today is to create another user account with appropriate privileges and run Cisco CP in that user account.

JRE Settings for Cisco CP

The following JRE settings are needed for CCP to function properly:


Step 1 Go to Start > Control Panel > Java.

Step 2 Click View under Java Applet Runtime Settings.

Step 3 Select your JRE in use.

Step 4 Set the "Java runtime parameters" with the value "-Xmx256m -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false".

In addition, if JRE is upgraded to versions 1.6.0_11 or above, following settings are needed after Cisco CP installation.


Step 1 Go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advance.

Step 2 Select "Java Plug-in" tree.

Step 3 Uncheck the check box for Enable next-generation Java Plug-in.

Step 4 Restart Cisco CP.

Cisco IOS Enforces One-Time Use of Default Credentials

To address CSCsm25466, Cisco IOS images included with recent shipments of Cisco 800, Cisco 1800, Cisco 2800, and Cisco 3800 routers, enforce the one-time use of the default user name and password provided in the Cisco CP configuration file. If you bypass Cisco CP or Cisco CP Express and use a console or Telnet connection to log into the router, the login and exec banners warn you that you must change the user name "cisco" and password "cisco" before you log off of the router. If you do not change the credentials as directed, you will not be able to log on to the router the next time that you attempt to do so.

The following Cisco IOS releases enforce the one-time use of the default credentials:

12.4(11)T or later

12.4(11)SW, 12.4(11)SW1, 12.4(11)XV, 12.4(11)XJ

12.4(9)T5, 12.4(9)T6

12.3(21), 12.3(22)

Follow the procedure in this section to secure the router by creating a new username and password, to remove the login banner and exec banner warnings, and to save the configuration changes to the router startup configuration.


Note If you login to the router using a Telnet or a console connection but do not complete the steps in this procedure, be aware of the following:

If you do not change the default username and password, and then log off the router, you will not be able to log into the router again without entering the reload command. No additional warning is given before you log off.

If you do not change the default username and password, but do enter the write memory command before ending the session, future logins will be disabled. In this case, you will need to follow the password recovery procedure at the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1831/products_tech_note09186a00801746e6.shtml


To secure the router, remove the banner warnings and save the changes to the router startup config, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Connect the light blue console cable, included with your router, from the blue console port on your router to a serial port on your PC. Refer to your router's hardware installation guide for instructions.

Step 2 Connect the power supply to your router, plug the power supply into a power outlet, and turn on your router. Refer to your router's quick start guide for instructions.

Step 3 Use HyperTerminal or a similar terminal emulation program on your PC, with the terminal emulation settings of 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control, to connect to your router.

Step 4 When prompted, enter the username cisco, and password cisco.

Step 5 Enter configuration mode by entering the following command:

yourname# configure terminal

Step 6 Create a new username and password by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# username username privilege 15 secret 0 password

Replace username and password with the username and password that you want to use.

Step 7 Remove the default username and password by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# no username cisco 

Step 8 To remove the login banner, enter the following command:

yourname(config)# no banner login

The login banner warning will no longer appear.

Step 9 To remove the exec banner, enter the following command:

yourname(config)# no banner exec

The exec banner warning will no longer appear.

Step 10 Leave configuration mode, by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# end 

Step 11 Copy the configuration changes to the startup configuration by entering the following command:

yourname# copy running-config startup-config 


When logging into the router in the future, use the username and password that you created in Step 6.

Cisco CP Merge and Replace Configuration Functions Fail Under Some Conditions

The problem described here is caveat CSCsj21989. If you attempt to merge configuration changes made using the Cisco CP Config Editor feature, or replace the running configuration with a configuration from the Config Editor, the router configuration will not be changed if there is a network device with a Network Address Translation (NAT) IP address, or a cache engine in the connection between the PC and the router. If you need to make changes to the router configuration that you would normally make using the Cisco CP Config Editor, use the Cisco IOS CLI instead.

Cisco CP Security Dashboard May Display Threats Unrelated to Your Cisco IOS IPS Installation

Some (or all) of the top threats you obtain using the Cisco CP Security Dashboard may not pertain to your Cisco IOS IPS installation. After you deploy the signatures applicable to the top threats displayed by the Cisco CP Security Dashboard, the dashboard may still display some (or all) top threats with a red icon because applicable signatures could not be found. Those remaining top threats are unrelated to your Cisco IOS IPS installation and not a danger to your router running Cisco IOS software.

Cisco CP May Lose Connection to Network Access Device

This note concerns the Network Admission Control (NAC) feature.

If the PC used to invoke Cisco CP returns a posture state (Healthy, Infected, Checkup, Quarantine, or Unknown) and if the group policy on the ACS server attached to the posture token assigned to the PC has a redirect URL configured, the connection between Cisco CP and the router acting as the Network Access Device (NAD) may be lost. The same problem can occur if an exception list entry attached to a policy with a redirect URL is configured with the IP address or MAC address of the PC.

If you try to reinvoke Cisco CP from this PC, you will not be able to do so because the browser will be redirected to the location specified in the redirect URL.

There are two workarounds for this problem:

Ensure that the PC that you use to invoke Cisco CP attains a posture token which has an associated group policy on the ACS server that is not configured with a redirect URL.

Alternatively, use Cisco CP to create a NAC exception list entry with the IP address or MAC address of the PC you use to invoke Cisco CP. Note that the exception list entry created for the PC should be associated to an exception policy which does not have a redirect URL configured in it.

For more information, see the links in the Cisco CP NAC online help pages.

Popup Blockers Disable Cisco CP Online Help

If you have enabled popup blockers in the browser you use to run Cisco CP, online help will not appear when you click the help button. To prevent this from happening, you must disable the popup blocker when you run Cisco CP. Popup blockers may be enabled in search engine toolbars, or may be standalone applications integrated with the web browser.

Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2 blocks popups by default. In order to turn off popup blocking in Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Pop-up Blocker > Turn Off Pop-up Blocker.

If you have not installed and enabled third-party pop up blockers, go to Tools >Internet Options > Privacy, and uncheck the Block popups checkbox.

Disable Proxy Settings

Cisco CP will not start when run under Internet Explorer with proxy settings enabled. To correct this problem, choose Internet Options from the Tools menu, click the Connections tab, and then click the LAN settings button. In the LAN Settings window, disable the proxy settings.

Security Alert Dialog May Remain After Cisco CP Launches

When Cisco CP is launched using HTTPS, a security alert dialog box that informs you of possible security problems and asks you if you want to proceed with program launch may appear. This can happen if the router does not have the following global configuration command in the running configuration:

ip http timeout-policy idle 600 life 86400 requests 10000

CSCtg11258

Firewall: Multiple entries created for SIP and H323 AI in the same row.

Symptom    Adding H323 and SIP Application Inspection for self to other zone pairs using edit a rule on edit firewall tab leads to multiple entries(2) of the SIP and H323 Application Inspection.

Conditions   In adding SIP and H323 Application Inspection where a firewall rule exists with some other protocols selected, CCP creates double entries of the Application Inspection while on the router. The configuration is as per steps taken by the user. That is one Class map with the Application Inspection rules is added per protocol.

Workaround   There is no workaround. This is a GUI error only with no error in the configuration of the Application Inspection of any of the protocols.

CSCtf87466

SIP on in to self and vice versa leads to unreachable router.

Symptom    Attaching/removing the management interface (in which CCP is invoked) from the zone-member security of firewall leads to unreachable router.

Conditions   Firewall configurations delivered has the configuration that tries to attach/remove the management interface (example: Gi0/0, the interface from which CCP is invoked) from the zone-security. IOS tries to reset the communication session which in return makes router unreachable and communication is lost.

interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 zone-member security in
 exit

or

interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 no zone-member security in
 exit

Workaround   Rediscovering the router from CCP might work if the device is reachable. If the device is not reachable after the discovery, router is blocked by firewall through that interface IP address.
