Everyone studying for the CCNA Security 210 – 260 will know that Cisco Configuration Professional (CCP) is mentioned numerous times throughout the course material. Most often than not, those studying for certifications try their best to lab what they learn and with that in mind, I have decided to provide a video and written instructions on how to install CCP express.
Ensure you have compatible Cisco devices that support CCP
Download CCP from the Cisco website and unzip the folder (CCP Express is FREE)
Download a TFTP server of your choice – in my example I selected Solarwinds
Select the correct directory on the TFTP server and ensure the Cisco files downloaded previously are reachable from that directory
Configure your end device so that it is reachable from the Cisco device
Configure the Cisco device – the following configurations are taken from my lab example
username wizkid privilege 15 secret algorytm-type scrypt PASSWORD
interface GigabitEthernet1 ip address 192.168.50.254 255.255.255.0
ip domain name cisco.com
ip http server ip http authentication local ip http secure-server
You don’t have to generate RSA keys but if you choose to, the following configurations will help.
crypto key generate rsa -> press enter and input 1024 as the key size
ip shh version 2
Copy the files to the Cisco device
Remote hostname: Enter the TFTP server IP address
Source Filename: Enter the source file name of the first file
Destination Filename: Press enter to keep the same name
Repeat Step 6. and add the second file
Extract the ccpexpressAdminxxxxxx file on the Cisco device using the following command
archive tar /xtract flash:FILENAME flash:/
Open a web browser and navigate to the IP address of the Cisco device and log in using the credentials you created on the Cisco device- here is an example from my lab
I have included the lab demonstration video below, if you have anymore questions, leave a comment below.
