If you are an administrator, Cisco Unified Communication Server (uCS) is one of the key components of your Windows 10 OS.
If you don’t know what uCS is, you can read our guide to Windows 10, which explains everything you need to know about uCS.
If, on the other hand, you’re an advanced user, you might need to take a look at this tutorial to configure uCS and get it up and running.
To start, you’ll need to install the Cisco Unified Administration Tool (uACT).
The Cisco Unified Management Suite (uMS) can be downloaded from Cisco and can be used to manage Cisco Unified communications servers.
You can use uMS to set up networking and security policies, configure the UCC, add a firewall, manage the DHCP and DNS, and so on.
For this tutorial, we’ll use Cisco uCS to manage Windows 10.
To set up uCS, we first need to create a firewall rule for the Cisco uWS-C (Unified Wireless Controller for Windows).
Once that’s done, we can then add a policy to make sure all traffic coming from the Cisco router to the Windows firewall goes through that rule.
To add a rule, open Cisco uMS and select “Add Rule…” under the “Manage Rules” tab.
Click on “Add…”.
Then, select “Create Rule.”
Click “OK” to save the new rule and close Cisco uACT.
Now, we need to enable the Cisco networking rules for the Windows network.
Open Cisco uESXi and navigate to the Cisco network, select the Cisco “UDS” network, and then “Network…” under “Network Rules.”
Select “Add Network Rule” from the drop-down menu, and select the rule you just created.
Then, click “OK.”
After that’s completed, the Cisco firewall will automatically open, so you can connect to the network.
We’ll also need to add a new rule to allow users on the Cisco networks to access Windows computers on the same network.
To do this, open the Cisco Network Rules Manager (CRCM) and then select the “Add Rules” icon in the left-hand pane.
Select “Allow Network Rules…” from the list, and click “Add…” to add the rule.
Then click “Next” to add more rules.
Now we need two rules to enable users on Cisco networks on the Windows networks to connect to other users on Windows PCs on the network as well.
Open the Cisco UDS Policy Manager and select Cisco “Cisco UDS” under the Network Rules menu.
From the list of available policies, click the “Security Rules” button and then the “User Rules” option.
From here, click on “Advanced Rules” to select the firewall rules you just added.
Click “Next…” to save these rules.
Once these rules are added, you should be able to connect from your Cisco UESXi to your Windows computer on the Internet.
This can be achieved by simply adding the Cisco Cisco UWS-A firewall rule to your Cisco firewall rules.
In the Cisco Security Center, go to the “Network” tab and then click on the “Rules” tab under “Unified Communication.”
Click on the uWS security rule and then navigate to “Firewall Rules.”
Click the “New” button to add rules.
You’ll then see an error message indicating that the firewall rule cannot be added.
You need to configure the rules in Cisco uDS so that they will allow Windows users to connect over the Cisco routers.
To configure the Cisco Firewall rules, open uESX, select Cisco Firewalls, select a firewall rules, and navigate through the steps.
After selecting the Cisco firewalls you wish to configure, click OK to close the Cisco security center.
Now you can open the firewall settings in uESx, which will allow users to log on to the computers in your network and to connect.
If this is all you need, you’ve successfully configured your Cisco Unified Systems in Windows 10 and should be ready to start using Cisco Unified Services on Windows 10 for managing Windows network applications.
