Cisco 891FW Router - Web Gui

Hey guys,


Bare with me, as I am Cisco newbie and not too familiar with their setups.

I essentially want to be able to use the web interface of the router to configure VPNs, port forwards, etc. and not use CLIs.


Just got a Cisco 891FW Router for a client and want to pre-setup everything, but I couldn't seem to get into the web interface of the router. After finding out (correct me if I am wrong) that it is disabled by default, so you will have to use console to configure it.


So with the cable console I was provided, I used putty and got into that interface (this is where I lack experience in use). Referring to this guide (, I tried to enable the Web GUI of the router. 

So the commands I ran are:

Router(config)# ip http server

Router(config)# ip http authentication aaa

Router(config)# aaa authentication login default local


I connected a ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports to my laptop and it got an IP address ( I opened my web browser and put in http://<router name>, and nothing; even tried as I figured that would be the web interface since I got a .15 address.

Did I miss a step or am I following the wrong guide? I am not too familiar with Cisco routers (beside you basic home/small business ones with the WebGUI enabled by default) so if you guys can show me a guide specific to my model, or give me a step-by-step on how to enable the web interface that would be appreciated.


Thanks for any help
