Installing CSD on the Catalyst 6500 Series WebVPN Services Module


Note Refer to Configuring the WebVPN Services Module for detailed instructions; refer to the Catalyst 6500 Series WebVPN Services Module Command Reference for complete command syntax and usage guidelines.


Remote users attempting to download CSD from the gateway while you are upgrading CSD might receive a "503 Service Unavailable" message suggesting that they try again later. The console or other logging device also displays a log message.

CSD Release 3.1 requires that you install WebVPN Services Module Release 1.2 or later. Install the CSD software on a WebVPN Services Module as follows:


Step 1 Use your Internet browser to access the following URL and download the securedesktop_ios_3_1*.pkg file to any location on your PC:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/securedesktop

Step 2 Enter the copy tftp: flash command in global configuration mode to copy the CSD package to the flash device on the WebVPN Services Module.

Step 3 At the prompts, enter the address or name of the remote host and the source filename (securedesktop_ios_3_1*.pkg).

Step 4 Enter the dir flash: command and confirm that the CSD package file is present.

Step 5 Enter the configure terminal command to enter configuration mode, selecting the terminal option.

Step 6 Enter the webvpn install csd flash:path/filename command to install the CSD package.

The installation software extracts the files to the flash:/webvpn directory and deletes the securedesktop_ios_3_1*.pkg file from the flash directory.


Note The no webvpn install csd command uninstalls CSD. However, the *.pkg files remain on the Flash device; you can reinstall CSD on the gateway by entering the following command:
webvpn install csd flash:/webvpn/sdesktop.pkg

The delete flash:/webvpn/sdesktop.pkg command deletes the package from flash, but it does not affect the existing installation.


Step 7 Enter the end command to exit configuration mode.

Step 8 Enter the dir flash:/webvpn command to display the contents of the Flash: device on the WebVPN Services Module. Confirm that the CSD package file is present and renamed sdesktop.pkg.

Step 9 Enter the show webvpn package csd status command to display the status of the installed CSD package.


This example shows how to download and install the CSD package:

webvpn# copy tftp: flash
