Step 1 Make sure that your PC is powered up and connected as described in the "Checklist for Power-Up" section.

Step 2 Move the power switch to the ON position. The SYS PWR LED on the front of the chassis blinks green. The fans operate once the router reaches a threshold point temperature. If this does not happen, see the Troubleshooting module in the online Cisco 815 integrated services router hardware installation documentation at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps380/prod_installation_guides_list.html

Startup messages appear in your terminal emulation program window. When the startup messages end, the SYS PWR LED shows solid green.


Caution Do not press any keys on the keyboard until the messages stop and the SYS PWR LED is solid green. Any keys pressed during this time are interpreted as the first command typed when the messages stop, which might cause the router to power off and restart. It takes a few minutes for the messages to stop.

If you see the following messages, the router has booted with a configuration file and is ready for initial configuration using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (Cisco SDM):

yourname con0 is now available
Press RETURN to get started.

Note Because Cisco SDM is installed on your router by default, we recommend using Cisco SDM to perform the initial configuration.


See the "Configure the Router Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager" section to learn how to configure your router using Cisco SDM, or how to obtain Cisco SDM and install it on your router.


Note If you do not have Cisco SDM on your router, and would like to use Cisco SDM, go to the following location for instructions on how to install it on your Cisco 815 series router:

http://www.cisco.com/go/sdm


If you see the following messages, the router has booted and is ready for initial configuration using the setup command facility or the command-line interface (CLI):

--- System Configuration Dialog ---

At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:

To use the setup command facility and use the CLI to configure the router, see the "Setting Up the Initial Configuration Using the Setup Command Facility" and "Setting Up the Initial Configuration Using the Setup Command Facility" sections.

If the rommon 1> prompt appears, your system has booted in ROM monitor mode.


Verifying the Hardware Configuration

To display and verify the hardware features, enter the show version command. This command displays the system hardware version; the installed software version; the names and sources of configuration files; the boot images; and the amount of installed DRAM, NVRAM, and flash memory.

9 Perform Initial Configuration

This section provides the procedures for performing the initial configuration of your Cisco 815 integrated services router.

Configure the Router Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager

Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (Cisco SDM) is a web-based configuration tool that allows you to configure LAN and WAN interfaces, routing, Network Address Translation (NAT), firewalls, VPNs, and other features on your router. If Cisco SDM is installed on your router, configure the router by following the instructions in the Cisco Router and Security Device Manager Quick Start Guide. If this document was not shipped with your router, you can obtain Cisco SDM and instructions for installing it on your router from the following location:

http://www.cisco.com/go/sdm


Note To obtain the Cisco SDM release notes, and other Cisco SDM documentation, go to http://www.cisco.com/go/sdm and click the Technical Documentation link.


Setting Up the Initial Configuration Using the Setup Command Facility

This section shows how to use the setup command facility to configure a hostname for the Cisco 815 integrated services router, to set passwords, and to configure an interface for communication with the management network. If the following messages appear at the end of the startup sequence, the setup command facility has been invoked automatically:

--- System Configuration Dialog ---

At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:

The setup command facility prompts you for basic information about your Cisco 815 integrated services router and network, and it creates an initial configuration file. After the configuration file is created, you can use the CLI or Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (Cisco SDM) to perform additional configuration.

The prompts in the setup command facility vary with the installed interface modules and the software image. The following example and the user entries (in bold) are shown as examples only.

For help with interface and port numbering, see the "Interface Numbering" section.


Note If you make a mistake while using the setup command facility, you can exit and run the setup command facility again. Press Ctrl-C, and type setup at the privileged EXEC mode prompt (Router#).



Step 1 To proceed using the setup command facility, enter yes when the power-up messages have ended.

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]: yes

Note If these messages do not appear, Cisco SDM and a default configuration file were installed on the router at the factory. To use Cisco SDM to configure the router, see the "Configure the Router Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager" section.



Step 2 When the following messages appear, press Return to enter basic management setup:

At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.

Basic management setup configures only enough connectivity
for management of the system, extended setup will ask you
to configure each interface on the system

Would you like to enter basic management setup? [yes/no]: yes

Step 3 Enter a hostname for the Cisco 815 integrated services router (this example uses Router):

Configuring global parameters:

Enter host name [Router]: Router

Step 4 Enter an enable secret password. This password is encrypted (more secure) and cannot be seen when you view the configuration:

The enable secret is a password used to protect access to
privileged EXEC and configuration modes. This password, after
entered, becomes encrypted in the configuration.
Enter enable secret: xxxxxx

Step 5 Enter an enable password that is different from the enable secret password. This password is not encrypted (less secure) and can be seen when you view the configuration:

The enable password is used when you do not specify an
enable secret password, with some older software versions, and
some boot images.
Enter enable password: xxxxxx

Step 6 Enter the virtual terminal password, which prevents unauthenticated access to the Cisco 815 integrated services router through ports other than the console port:

The virtual terminal password is used to protect
access to the router over a network interface.
Enter virtual terminal password: xxxxxx

Step 7 Respond to the following prompts as appropriate for your network:

13 Cisco Product Security Overview

Cisco provides a free online Security Vulnerability Policy portal at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html

From this site, you will find information about how to:

Report security vulnerabilities in Cisco products.

Obtain assistance with security incidents that involve Cisco products.

Register to receive security information from Cisco.

A current list of security advisories, security notices, and security responses for Cisco products is available at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/go/psirt

To see security advisories, security notices, and security responses as they are updated in real time, you can subscribe to the Product Security Incident Response Team Really Simple Syndication (PSIRT RSS) feed. Information about how to subscribe to the PSIRT RSS feed is found at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_psirt_rss_feed.html

Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products

Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:

For Emergencies only — security-alert@cisco.com

An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.

For Nonemergencies — psirt@cisco.com

In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:

1 877 228-7302

1 408 525-6532


Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product (for example, GnuPG) to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work with information that has been encrypted with PGP versions 2.x through 9.x.

Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html

The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.

If you do not have or use PGP, contact PSIRT at the aforementioned e-mail addresses or phone numbers before sending any sensitive material to find other means of encrypting the data.


14 Obtaining Technical Assistance

Cisco Technical Support provides 24-hour-a-day award-winning technical assistance. The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website on Cisco.com features extensive online support resources. In addition, if you have a valid Cisco service contract, Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) engineers provide telephone support. If you do not have a valid Cisco service contract, contact your reseller.

Cisco Technical Support & Documentation Website

The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website provides online documents and tools for troubleshooting and resolving technical issues with Cisco products and technologies. The website is available 24 hours a day, at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport

Access to all tools on the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website requires a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at this URL:

http://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do


Note Use the Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool to locate your product serial number before submitting a web or phone request for service. You can access the CPI tool from the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website by clicking the Tools & Resources link under Documentation & Tools. Choose Cisco Product Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Index drop-down list, or click the Cisco Product Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pasting show command output. Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.


Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests, or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447

For a complete list of Cisco TAC contacts, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/contacts

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is down, or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired, while most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
