Cisco Configuration Professional

What is Cisco Configuration Professional?

Cisco Configuration Professional offers smart wizards and advanced configuration support for LAN and WAN interfaces, Network Address Translation (NAT), stateful and application firewall policy, IPS, IPSec and SSL VPN, QoS, and Cisco Network Admission Control policy features.

About  (from Cisco Systems)

Cisco Configuration Professional tools enhance productivity and help network security administrators and channel partners to deploy routers with increased confidence and ease. Cisco Configuration Professional is offered in two versions - Cisco Configuration Professional and Cisco Configuration Professional Express.

Overview

The most common release is 1.2, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named ciscocp.exe. The setup package generally installs about 210 files.
