Downloading Device Packages to a Windows Host

Support for new devices can be added to CiscoWorks Windows any time after the initial installation. To add device support, go to Cisco Connection Online (CCO), the Cisco Systems online support channel.

If you do not have Internet access, you can skip this chapter. To receive updated packages, you can order the Cisco Network Management Support CD-ROM. The CD contains the latest network management device and application support files. These files are organized into product packages and provide up-to-date management support for the latest Cisco devices for all supported platforms. For ordering information, see your product catalog.

A quick reference version of the instructions in this chapter appears in the installation booklet that accompanies the CD. You can use the booklet if you are familiar with downloading device packages from CCO to the CiscoWorks Windows platform.

This chapter describes the download process in greater detail than the quick reference and contains the following sections:

•Using CiscoView Packages

•Downloading from CCO

•Downloading Via FTP

•Reinstalling the Cisco Device Package File

•Removing CiscoWorks Windows Devices

•CiscoWorks Windows Uninstallation

CiscoView device support on CCO consists of packages containing application upgrades, graphics, device descriptions, Management Information Base (MIB) files, and other supporting files. Each package has a Readme file that goes with it. View the Readme file before downloading to ensure that the file works with your configuration. After you add the package file, you can view and manage the hardware device using CiscoView.

Note This chapter refers to device support for CiscoView, but these packages also support the other CiscoWorks Windows applications.

Using CiscoView Packages

There are many device packages bundled in CiscoView. Device packages are upgraded frequently. To ensure that you have the most recent upgrade, verify the version number through CCO. Always check for updated device packages on CCO, and make sure that you have the latest device package. The CCO directory contains the latest device code, a Readme file, and the help code for the device. CCO is updated dynamically as changes occur.

Caution Ensure that for new device or application support, you select CiscoView 4.0 or CiscoView 4.1 release packages. You can use existing CiscoView 3.1.1 packages, but they do not support new features, such as stackable device functionality, which are available only with CiscoView 4.0 and later versions.

Downloading from CCO

There are two ways to access Cisco device package files from the Internet: from CCO or through anonymous FTP. This section describes how to download from CCO.

System and Software Requirements

Before adding a device package, make sure of the following:

•Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0 is installed.
