Prime Cable Provisioning Interfaces
This chapter describes how to set up and access the Prime Cable Provisioning user interfaces. There are two user interfaces to access Prime Cable Provisioning, Admin UI and DPE CLI. You must have a valid Prime Cable Provisioning license for these two interfaces else some configurations might fail.
Accessing Admin UI
You can access the Prime Cable Provisioning Admin UI from any computer that can access the URL corresponding to the Prime Cable Provisioning application.
To view the new Admin UI pages, it is recommended that you must manually clear the browser cache after upgrade.
You can log in to the Prime
Cable Provisioning Admin UI if you have a user account either in the RDU or in
a remote server such as Radius or TACACS used for authentication. For details
about user access and privileges see
Complete this procedure to
access the Prime Cable Provisioning Admin UI:
||Launch your web browser.
Prime Cable Provisioning can be launched using the following browsers:
||Enter the administrator’s
location using this syntax:
computer on which the RDU is running.
ip_address—Identifies the IP address of the computer on which
the RDU is running.
computer port on which the server side of the administrator application runs.
The default port number is:
8100 for HTTP over TCP
8443 for HTTP over SSL
By default, Prime Cable
Provisioning redirects all HTTP communications over HTTPS. If you want to
bypass the HTTPS redirection, set the property adminui/redirectToHttps to false
in the admin.properties file. For more details about this property file, see

Accessing DPE CLI
The Prime Cable Provisioning CLI is an IOS-like command-line interface that you use to configure and view the status of the DPE by using Telnet or SSH. The CLI supports built-in command help and command autocompletion.
You can enable authentication of the CLI through a locally configured login and privileged passwords, or through a remote username and password for a TACACS+ service.
To access the DPE CLI, open a Telnet session to port 2323 from a local or remote host.
Accessing DPE CLI from a Local Host
To access the CLI from a local host, you can use:
# telnet local_hostname 2323
# telnet 0 2323
