11. Click 'Submit All Changes' at the bottom of the page

12. Reboot the device

13. After the device reboots it will most likely updated the firmware, this can take several minutes depending on your internet connection  




Once the device finishes booting the lights behind the line numbers should turn solid green, meaning they are connected to the internet and ready to use.


NOTE: Once you have programed your SPA800 to the Sharpen Auto Provisioning System it will apply a password to both the User and the Admin side of the device. The username and password for both of these are as follows:

Username: user
Password: userspa

Username: admin
Password: adminspa

Please be sure you are aware of which portal you are logging into, for example you must first login the User portal of the SPA 8000 before you can click the link to log into the admin portal.  This is a requirement from Cisco and not something that Sharpen has the ability to change.
