Cisco 1800 Series ISR Tips for OnPlus

Read this section for important information about limitations and caveats that apply to Cisco OnPlus Portal device feature support as relatd Cisco 1800 series ISRs.

Portal Feature


Cisco 1800 Series ISRs must have CDP enabled in order to be discovered by the OnPlus Agent device.

If you use Cisco CP or Cisco CP Express to configure the router, it is very likely that CDP is disabled, since this is the recommended configuration. If CDP is disabled, the 800 Series router will show up in the Topology as an Unknown Device.

Open the Device Information window for the device, select the Credentials tab, click Device Driver, and select the Cisco 800 Series. If CDP is enabled, the device will be discovered properly.

Access and Info

If device access credentials are not provided, the device's MAC address, and IP address are displayed.

If the 1800 Series ISR has SSH access, and Level 15 credentials are entered under Credentials > Login and Credentials > Enable in the Device Information window on the portal, the device information collected will include Serial Number, PID/VID, device type, model name, and description. In addition, the device's ARP and CAM tables will be used to discover additional devices.

Device Configuration Backup and Restore

The backup of an 800 Series ISR consists solely of storing a copy of the startup-config file. Other elements, such as users defined in the AAA database, are not backed up.

To restore the configuration, the saved file is copied to startup-config, and the ASA is rebooted, loading the new configuration.

Backup and restore both require device access credentials (login and enable access).

Upgrade Firmware

If the ISR800 administrator has defined a boot load with the boot system command, firmware upgrades are not performed.

Remote Access

The normal web access will not work. If you have CP Express loaded on the router, it will try and load that program up and run it. This is a Java program and does not work properly through the http tunnel that is being created.

Remote access is possible with one of the following methods using a generic tunnel:

• •

To get a CLI prompt, use port 22. Once the tunnel is opened, copy the link into your SSH program and make the connection.

To get a http access, use port 80 and once the tunnel is opened then copy the link into a new browser tab and point it to this url http://<ip addr link with port>/exec.

Note: Cisco OnPlus Service was tested with the 1811 and 1812 models, with feature support expected to apply to all other models in the series.
