Can't use Cisco SDM with my router 1841

aocferreiraaocferreira Member Posts: 50 ■■■□□□□□□□

- Router with Cisco IOS Software, 1841 Software (C1841-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M), Version 15.0(1)M7, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

- Running config contains following entries:
username <user> privilege 15 password 0 <password>
ip http server
ip http authentication local
ip http secure-server

- SDM v2.5 installed on my laptop

- Router and laptop are directly connected with cable

- Ping works both directions between NIC on laptop and Fa0/1 of the router

Anyway, I'm not being able to run SDM. Whenever I execute it on my PC, it says application is blocked by Java. Please refer to attached image.

- Firefox 44.0.2

- java version "1.8.0_73"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_73-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.73-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

Any suggestions on how to get this working?
I already tried to add an exception with URL (IP on the router) to Java configuration, but it doesnt work.

    Try using an older version of Java, had a similar issue when using the FirePower services on the 5506X, SDM flipped me off. Downgraded java to something in the 7 series and boom, screw java.

    not sure why you want to run sdm as it is no long supported and not a need to know for any cisco cert. You'd be better off using ccp, cisco configuration professional. But, first of all, sdm is only supported on xp pro, and running ie, and only a few java versions work with it (something like jre 1.6u6 is good). and, i guess it will also work with windows server 2003se. and it supports firefox 1.0.5
    and sdm doesn't support version 15 ios either.
    ccp will work with a wider version of ms os's but still the system and software requirements are pretty limited. So, check them out before installing.

    It was just curiosity about SDM.. Anyway, I managed to install CCP and it seems it's working.
    But even CCP is not part of CCNA:S exam, right?

    You could add it to the Java exception list...

    the old test (last year) was practically all ccp and I don't know how much is on the new test. But, there is asdm for asa's
