If you want to enjoy watching satellite TV channels on your Enigma2 receiver, you need to install a softcam software that can decrypt the encrypted signals. One of the most popular softcams is CCCAM, which is a card sharing protocol that allows multiple users to access the same subscription card over the network.
In this article, we will show you how to install CCCAM on Enigma2 download and configure it with your subscription details. We will use three different images as examples: OpenATV, OpenPLi, and OpenVIX. You can follow the same steps for other images as well.
What You Need
Before you start, make sure you have the following:
An Enigma2 receiver that supports CCCAM, such as Dreambox, Vu+, Formuler, Zgemma, etc.
A working internet connection and a network cable to connect your receiver to your router.
A CCCAM subscription from a reliable provider. You will receive a file with the extension .cfg that contains your username, password, server address, and port number. You may also receive additional files with the extensions .prio and .providers that contain priority and provider information.
A PC or laptop with Windows OS and a software called WinSCP that allows you to transfer files between your PC and your receiver via FTP protocol. You can download WinSCP from here.
How To Install CCCAM On Enigma2 Download
The installation process consists of three main steps: downloading the CCCAM plugin, copying the subscription files, and starting the CCCAM service. We will explain each step in detail below.
Step 1: Downloading The CCCAM Plugin
The first step is to download the CCCAM plugin from the online repository of your image. Depending on your image, the plugin may have different names and versions. For example, on OpenATV, it is called CCcam 2.3.9, on OpenPLi, it is called CCcam 2.3.2, and on OpenVIX, it is called CCcam 2.3.0. You can choose the latest version available for your image.
To download the plugin, follow these steps:
Turn on your receiver and press the Menu button on your remote control.
Select Plugins and press OK.
Press the Green button on your remote control to open the plugin download menu.
Select Softcams and press OK.
Choose the CCCAM plugin that matches your image and press OK.
Select Yes to confirm the installation and wait for a few seconds until it is completed.
Press Exit to return to the main menu.
Step 2: Copying The Subscription Files
The second step is to copy the subscription files that you received from your provider to your receiver. These files are usually named CCcam.cfg, CCcam.prio, and CCcam.providers. The CCcam.cfg file is mandatory, while the other two files are optional but recommended.
To copy the files, follow these steps:
Open WinSCP on your PC and enter the following information in the login window:
File protocol: FTP
Host name: The IP address of your receiver (you can find it in Menu > Setup > System > Network > Device Setup > Adapter Settings)
User name: root (by default)
Password: (leave blank by default)
Click on Login and wait for a few seconds until you see two panels: one for your PC and one for your receiver.
Locate the subscription files on your PC and drag them to the /etc folder on your receiver.
Close WinSCP when you are done.
Step 3: Starting The CCCAM Service
The final step is to start the CCCAM service on your receiver and enjoy watching your favorite channels. To start the service, follow these steps:
Press the Blue button on your remote control to open the softcam panel.
