Log in to DMPDM
This section explains how to access DMPDM.
Before You Begin
•Connect your DMP to its presentation system, and make sure both are turned On.
Step 1 While your presentation system shows the Cisco logo and shows an IP address for your DMP, write down the IP address.
Tip Later, you can change how long this splash screen is visible during startup. See the "Edit the Splash Screen Duration to Obscure the DMP IP Address" section.
Step 2 Point your browser to the IP address that you wrote down. Use HTTPS as the connection protocol.
The connection fails when you use HTTP instead of HTTPS. This failure occurs by design, to support security in your network.
Step 3 Respond to the prompt. It sometimes varies.
•Does it ask you to EDIT a password before you can log in?
The first time that you start DMPDM, it prompts you to change its factory-defined master password. You will never see this prompt again, unless you restore your DMP to its factory-default settings.
a. Enter a new master password that contains at least eight characters, which combine uppercase and lowercase letters with numerals
b. Click Activate.
•Does it ask you to ENTER a password so that you can log in?
a. Use the login name admin.
b. Use whichever master password you saved most recently.
Step 4 Stop. Remain logged in. You have completed this procedure.
