Edge 340 Registration (On-Premise)
This guide outlines the steps to register Cisco Edge 340 devices to an on premise instance of Appspace.
- The registration is executed using a desktop wizard. The workstation running the wizard must have the Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5 installed.
- The Appspace Cloud account should have sufficient client access licenses (CALs) to register the desired quantity of devices.
- Ensure that the following network port requirements are met:
|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||Edge 340||SSH (22)||The Edge 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.|
|Edge 340||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.|
|Edge 340||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.|
