Registering a Cisco Edge 340 media player
This article provides instructions to register Cisco Edge 340 devices on Appspace Cloud and On-Premises, using the following two options:
The workstation running the wizard must have Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5 installed.
The Appspace Cloud account should have sufficient Appspace IDs/client access licenses (CALs) to register the desired number of devices.
Allow access to the following network ports:
Source Destination Ports Description Workstation Appspace HTTP (80) or HTTPS (443) A web browser with Adobe Flash 10.0 Plugin is used to access Appspace.

Registering Edge 340 with Online Registration Tool
The Online Registration Tool does not work on Chrome and Firefox web browsers, as the NPAPI plugins that are required by the tool to communicate with the devices on the local network are disabled by default on these browsers. Please use Internet Explorer 11 instead.
Follow the instructions below to register Edge 340 with the Online Registration Tool:
Navigate to Devices from the Appspace menu, and select the Advanced tab. Click the Looking to register legacy devices? Click here link to register a new device.
Select Cisco Edge from the device drop-down menu, and click OK.
Select Online Registration.
Enter in the Device IP, Content delivery method, and Device Credentials. Once complete, click Scan Devices to begin the device search.
An IP range may be used in the Device IP field to find multiple devices.
All the Edge 340 devices found within the defined IP range are displayed. Select the check box of the devices you wish to register, and click Register Device. This process will take a few minutes depending on the number of devices selected.
Once the registration process is complete, the device’s status will change to Complete.
