Best way to install and use Cisco Configuration Professional (CCP)

Hey guys, forget about everything you have read on how to
make CCP work, today I’m going to show you all you need to do to have your CCP
working well. I must say that CCP is one of the few things Cisco didn’t do
well. Every tech blog you log unto, people have one or two problems concerning
CCP to write about. Well, I have this solution based on personal experience.
Without much talk, here we go.

Follow these commandments and your CCP will work for you. What
you need: Windows 7, CCP version 2.7(download here), java 6.11.1 (32 bit, download here), internet explorer version 8,
and adobe flash player latest version preferably( download here).
If your operating system is 8 or later version, then install
windows 7 on a virtual machine and the rest software on the windows7 virtual
Lunch internet explorer, click on tools, click on
compatibility view and add the IP address and click on close. After
that, right click on the CCP icon on the desktop and click on run as
administrator. That’s all.
Note that for you to connect to your router via CCP, you
must have configured username and password on the router, an IP address for at
least one interface (the interface you are connected to), https, and http
authentication. Here are the commands:
# ip http secure-server
#ip http au local
#username admin privilege 15 secret cisco
#interface vlan 1 (the interface depends on what you have on
your router and where your cable is connected).
#Ip add
#no shut.

Command must be enter in global configuration mode.
