Verify the Initial Configuration and Use Cisco CP Express
Cisco CP Express is supported on these browsers:
- Mozilla Firefox 25 or later
- Google Chrome 30 or later
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 or later
- Safari 9.1
This product is shipped with a default configuration which is unique to each device. The default configuration allows the user to access the CCP Express Quick Setup Wizard to perform basic configuration. Erasing or any other manual configuration changes prior to using CCP Express is strongly discouraged as the default configuration is mandatory for CCP Express to operate. For any guidance on these scenarios, users are requested to reach out to their platform support team.
To verify if Cisco CP Express is installed correctly:
1. Launch the browser.
2. In the address bar, type the IP address of the router where Cisco CP Express is installed.
Type http://10.10.10.1 or https://10.10.10.1
3. Specify the username and the password of the router.
If you are using the router for the first time, use the one-time username and password (by default, cisco/cisco) configured for the router.
4. Click Log In.
The Cisco CP Express launches and is ready for use. With the one-time user present, you get redirected to the Wizard page with the prompt to create a new user.
Note This step is mandatory as it is crucial to retain access to the router. The one-time user will be automatically removed at this stage.
Enter the username/password for the new user to be created, and click Ok. You will be prompted a second time to enter the username/password of the new user just created.
