Thanks for all the help, Martin and Techkid.
I guess downgrading the OS is indeed security?
After spending my entire weekend I was able to get SDM up and running, but with a none functioning "Aditional task button".
After following the other discusions of how to solve the issue SDM was intermitant at best, hangs, and will not always even open!
I Dl'ed Java 6u3 32 bit
6u24 32 bit , ( both must be installed and in order).
add the string
start/control pannel/java/ java/view
add string -XmX256m @ runtime parameters for 6u3 and deselected the check box "enable" on 6u24.
also run compatability mode,
XP sp3 no go,
XP sp1 no go,
server 2003 sp1 nogo,
server 2008 sp1 nogo,
vista sp2 <- majic wienner
when U double click on icon SDM
enter ip of your router in GNs3. 192.168.1.xxx
then then select
(this device has https enabled and I want to use it)
then the first SDM window opens and will just hang for all eternity.
I deselect the box that this device has HTTPS wanting to use IT.
vola you get the second window for
now you get a new digital sig error but click
RUN ,,,,, threw all of the following error screens ( MANY ERROR SCEENRS)
I asume that we can no longer use SSH?
Now after all that the button (Aditional Tasks ) does indeed function.
serial ports, old software, & compatability mode:
WOW don't tell the Chinese.
oh yeah the Hackers are all, dumb, and ruski is slow?
How about a Cisco SDM 2.6 for w7 x64?
having 32 bit OS with only 4 gig mem was allot less hassle than the pleasures of 8 gig memory in windows 7 x64, even the OS, XP pro 64 has troubles.
Hi ! im CCNASec instructor, im fix this buttom trouble with Java jre-6u5-windows-i586-p.exe update (...or downgrade) lasts versions not work.
This is old update of Java, but is a only solution, SDM is very impredictable, CLI forever !!!
Good luck from Rosario, Argentina !!!
Not sure about java 1.6.05, try with _10 - works; also I tested _13 and _15 on XP machines but not on Win 7;
In CCNA Security, VPNs are set up via SDM;
get Java 1.06.10
what about Firefox 5 adn SDM ?
I have not try SDM with Firefox 5; I don't like Firefox 5 settings, I could be wrong but looks like they took "control of browser" away from you; unless advanced setting are hidden somewhere;
There is some concern about your privacy in the latest Firefox !
SDM with FireFox 3.0.3 Works ! and I am not upgrading anytime soon;
Martin that is exactly why I went back to I8,I9, firefox advanced gui is gone.
but is it?
the big orange fire foxbutton (pulldown/options) double click on either options and the advanced gui from the past will apear.
What I do not like about firefox also is that the control over your favorites folder is not quite the same. Were do they put the favorites?
