Hi Patrick

Do you have any .tar files available with you which is basically of the IOS .bin file and the additional files required to run SDM.

What about your other Cisco 1841 are you able to use SDM on it ?

Hi spremkumar,

with my second router i'm able to go farer but i'm also blocked :

I don't get "HTTP 404 file not found"

I get a new html window with title "SDM launch page" and image "cisco router and sdm".

but there is also a new small window "Password needed - Networking" whose contents is:

firewall: /

realm : level_15 ou view_access

scheme: basic




some minutes ago i already entered cisco/cisco

i re-enter cisco/cisco and i get a new html window

SDM startup error

SDM has not been granted with the necessary priviledges in order to startup successfully...or another unkbown error occured

That is the observed behaviour for my second router

otherwise, i didn't catch your first question about .tar, .bin ? where should be that .tar file ? what are those additional files required to run sdm ?
