Installing Cisco CP Express to a 891fw router

I am trying to configure and install Cisco CP Express 3.5 to my 891fw router, I have gone through all the steps but when I go to the router IP in a browser the login screen shows, I put in the username and password then it goes right back to the login. I have already flashed the files to the router and turned on http server and set an ip address to the gigabit interface.

If this is your first time logging in try username:cisco password:cisco . Otherwise it sounds like a bad password.

Yes ive tried cisco: cisco. I have also changed the password to something else through cli and ive verified that the password and username are right

Have you enabled the "ip http secure-server" as well?

no just "ip http server" does it need to be secure to work? im just trying http not https.

when i put in debugging and login it gives this error "Authentication failed for realm level_15_access" and "authentication failed for level 15"

You do not need to have https running for it to work. I have seen a similar issue that is a known bug on Cisco CP Express devices. Which produces the error you mentioned. Cisco normally has you set the device back to the factory defaults and they have you try your settings again. You might want to contact them and mention this issue before you spend to much time on it.

Nevermind I got it thanks, if anyone has this problem "debug ip http authentication" helps alot
and I had to add these commands

username XXXX privilege 15 password XXXXX  ( i think this gave it level 15 priv)


ip http authentication local  (changed from enable)
