thx, nice to know that firefox has self updating capability.
Are you saying I should run SDM v2.3.1 with jdk 1.5 on firefox or as standalone?
I would really like to run some Cisco software that can use java to run something like sdm as standalone application without the use of any web browser (firefox , IE or whatever). That is one thing less to worry about ( firefox or windows update) I have to update JDK eventually anyway
if I remember correctly one can compile java program to run as application as well as part of browser control
I already got sdm v2.31 installed on pc that is connected to the 1811 via serial port and also via network. The Cisco 1811 is connected to an external internet IP, say, 22.214.171.124
when I tried to use sdm to connect to 126.96.36.199, I had to click quite a few blocked active x/content. . None the less , at the end , the page display file:///C:/Program%20Files/CscSDM/common/common/error.html?APP= Startup Error has not been granted with the necessary privileges in order to startup successfully, or another unknown error occurred during startup.Please close all involved browser windows and try again by granting all requested privileges.
-------- so what does the message really mean? Java permission or firewall, or internet zone, URL..?
So you are trying to connect to the 1811 through the external IP address? Unless the router has been configured to allow remote management that is not going to work. You are going to have to connect to it via its internal LAN IP address (10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x, etc.) at least once to configure the router to allow remote management through the WAN.
I knew someone has done some configuration remotely on the unit via the external ip of 188.8.131.52 (not real). He was supposed to email me a log of what he has done but I got nothing.
So I am guessing he used the standard default port
I would have tried direct connect internally but no standalone PC are avail that I can attach to the unit and still allow me remote control the PC. I guess I just have to do some extra travel to site.
Or you or some can kindly show me how to change via console command to secure the unit _ right now I don't think it is fully secured even thought the default user and password has been demoted to view only when accessed remotely allow remote config
