Part 2: Java Settings on PCs

The next-generation Java Plug-in must be enabled and the security setting must be set to medium for the CCP configuration of IPS. To support CCP configuration of IPS and set the Java heap to 256 MB, the PC should be running Java JRE version 6 or newer. This is done using the runtime parameter –Xmx256m. The latest JRE for Windows can be downloaded from Oracle Corporation at http://www.oracle.com/.

Note: CCP is no longer used with CCNASv2 labs.

Step 1: Enable the next-generation Java Plug-in.

a. Open the Control Panel, and select Java to access the Java Control Panel.
b. In the Java Control Panel, click the Advanced tab.
c. Locate the heading “Java Plug-in”. Select the checkbox to Enable the next-generation Plug-in. a browser restart is required.
d. Click Apply.
e. Click Yes to allow the changes. Click OK to acknowledge the changes.

Step 2: Change the Java security settings.

a. Click the Security tab.
b. Change the Security Level to Medium by moving the slider.
c. Click Apply.

Step 3: Change the Java Applet Runtime settings.

a. Click the Java tab and then the View button to change the Java Applet Runtime Settings.
b. Double-click the Runtime Parameters box. Type –Xmx256m in the box.
c. Click OK. Click OK again to exit the Java Control Panel.

Step 4: Restart all web browsers, including CCP if it opened, in order for the changes to take effect.

Part 3: Access a Cisco Router Using a Mini-USB Console Cable

If you are using a Cisco 1941 router or other Cisco IOS devices wit h a mini-USB console port, you can access the device console port using a mini-USB cable connected to the USB port on your computer.

Note: The mini-USB console cable is the same type of mini-USB cable used with other electronics devices,
such as USB hard drives, USB printers, or USB hubs. These mini-USB cables can be purchased through
Cisco Systems, Inc. or other third-party vendors. Please verify that you are using a mini-USB cable, not a
micro-USB cable, to connect to the mini-USB console port on a Cisco IOS device.

Note: You must use either the USB port or the RJ-45 port. Do not use them simultaneously. When the USB port is used, it takes priority over the RJ-45 console port.

Step 1: Set up the physical connection with a mini-USB cable.

a. Connect the mini-USB cable to the mini-USB console port of the router.
b. Connect the other cable end to a USB port on the computer.
c. Turn on the Cisco router and computer.

Step 2: Verify that the USB console is ready.

If you are using a Microsoft Windows-based PC and the USB console port LED indicator (labeled EN) does not turn green, please install the Cisco USB console driver.

A USB driver must be installed prior to being used on a Microsoft Windows-based PC that is connecting to a
Cisco IOS device with a USB cable. The USB driver can be found on www.cisco.com with the related Cisco
IOS device. The USB driver can be downloaded from the following location:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=282774238&flowid=714&softwareid=282855122&rel
ease=3.1&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=latest

Note: You must have a valid Cisco Connection Online (CCO) account to download this file.
Note: The URL provided above is specifically related to the Cisco 1941 router. However, the USB console driver is not Cisco IOS device-model specific, but it only works with Cisco routers and switches. The computer
requires a reboot after finishing the installation of the USB driver.
Note: After the files are extracted, the folder contains instructions for installation, removal, and the required drivers for different operating systems and architectures. Please choose the appropriate version for your system.
When the LED indicator for the USB console port has turned green, the USB console port is ready for access.

Step 3: Enable the COM port for the Windows 7 PC.

If you are using a Microsoft Windows 7 PC, you may need to perform the following steps to enable the COM port:

a. Click the Windows Start icon to access the Control Panel.
b. Open the Device Manager.
c. Click the Ports (COM & LPT) tree link to expand it. Right-click the USB Serial Port icon and choose Update Driver Software.

d. Choose Browse my computer for driver software.

e. Choose Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer and click Next.

f. Choose the Cisco Serial driver and click Next.

g. The device driver is installed successfully. Take note of the assigned port number listed at the top of the
window. In this sample, COM 5 is used for communication with the router. Click Close.

h. Open Tera Term. Click the Serial radio button and choose Port COM5: Cisco Serial (COM 5). This port
should now be available for communication with the router. Click OK.

Part 4: Download and Install the AnyConnect Client Software Packages

Updated versions of Cisco’s AnyConnect Client software packages can be downloaded from Cisco.com. It is recommended that AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client release 4.1.00028 is downloaded and installed on the ASA 5505 for CCNAS. This release of the AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client has been tested on PCs running either the Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 OS.

Step 1: Download the AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client software packages from cisco.com.

a. Using a browser, connect to the www.cisco.com and log in.
b. Click Support > Security (VPN, Firewall) > AnyConnect VPN Client.
c. From the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client screen, click Download Software.

d. From the Download Software – Select a Product screen, click AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client.

e. Click AnyConnect Security Mobility Client v4.x.

f. Use the scroll bar in the Download Software – AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client v4.x screen to locate the Full installation package – Windows / Head-end deployment (PKG) file. Click Download.

Note: The Windows package release 4.1.00028 filename is anyconnect-win-4.1.1.00028-k9.pkg.

Step 2: Upload the AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client to the ASA 5505.

a. After the anyconnect-win-4.1.00028-k9.pkg has been downloaded, connect the PC to the ASA 5505 E0/1 interface and assign it a static IP address of 192.168.1.3 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.

Note: This PC will also need TFTP software installed. Tftpd32.exe is used for this example.

b. Configure the ASA’s VLAN with an IP address of 192.168.1.1, a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and the name if to inside.

ciscoasa(config)# int vlan 1
ciscoasa(config-if)# ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
ciscoasa(config-if)# nameif inside
INFO: Security level for "inside" set to 100 by default.
ciscoasa(config-if)# no shut

c. Activate interface E0/0.

ciscoasa(config-if)# int e0/1
ciscoasa(config-if)# no shut
ciscoasa(config-if)# end

d. Start the Tftpd32 software and verify that the anyconnect-win-4.1.00028-k9.pkg file is located in the default directory.

e. From the CLI on the ASA, issue the copy tftp://192.168.1.1/anyconnect-win-4.1.000028-k9.pkg flash: command.

ciscoasa# copy tftp://192.168.1.3/anyconnect-win-4.1.00028-k9.pkg flash:

Note: To find out how the router is configured, look at the interfaces, identify the type of router used, and how many interfaces the router has. There is no way to effectively list all the combinations of configurations for each router class. This table includes identifiers for the possible combinations of Ethernet and Serial interfaces in the device. The table does not include any other type of interface, even though a specific router may contain one. An example of this might be an ISDN BRI interface. The string in parenthesis is the legal abbreviation that can be used in Cisco IOS commands to represent the interface.
