DMP Registration (Cloud)
This guide outlines the steps to register Cisco DMP4310G or DMP4400G devices to an Appspace cloud account.
- The Appspace Cloud account should have sufficient client access licenses (CALs) to register the desired quantity of devices.
- Ensure that you have the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) versions installed on your web browser.
- Ensure that you have enabled Java to run on your web browser.
- Ensure that you have added your Appspace instance as a trusted site to your web browser.
- Ensure that the following network port rules are enabled to complete registration process:
|Workstation||Appspace||HTTP(80) or HTTPS (443)||Access using a modern web browser (FireFox, Chrome, Safari) with Adobe Flash 10.0 Plugin. User must add appspace.com to list of trusted websites and enable pop-ups from this URL. Network firewall and proxy server must allow access to Appspace domain URL/IP.|
|Workstation||DMP 4310G or 4400G||SSH (22)||The DMP wizard tool runs on a Windows OS (Windows XP, Windows 7), and requires the Microsoft .Net 4.0 runtime and accesses the device via SSH during registration.|
|DMP 4310G or 4400G||Appspace||HTTP(80) or HTTPS (443)||Background agents on media player devices connect to Appspace for content sync and player status reporting. Network firewall and proxy server must allow access to the Appspace domain URL/IP.|
|DMP 4310G or 4400G||Valid NTP Server (e.g. pool.ntp.org)||UDP(123) ICMP||The media players requires access to a valid NTP server to sync its system clock. This can be an internal network NTP server or a public NTP server on the pool.ntp.org domain name. Network firewall and/or proxy server must allow access to a selected NTP server.|
Registering Cisco DMPs Using the Online Registration Tool
From the Networks extension and select the Players tab. Click the + (Add) icon to register a new player.
Select Cisco DMP from the listed device types.
Select Online Registration.
Enter the proper values for the various fields such as Device IP, Content delivery method, and Device Credentials. When finished, click Scan Devices to begin the device search.
An IP range may be used for the Device IP field to find multiple devices.
The tool will display the DMP(s) found within the defined IP or IP range. Select the checkbox of the DMP(s) you want to register and click Register Device. This process will take up to a few minutes depending on the number of DMPs being registered. The status column will continuously update the current registration progress of each DMP (if there are multiple).
Once the registration process is complete, a summary at the bottom of the page displays the number of devices successfully registered and the number of devices that failed to register.
