Was thinking of migrating an existing small network to Cisco equipment, as the owner wants to move to a more upmarket, higher-reliability infrastructure.
Main issue I see is that most if not all of the Cisco routers depend on a Java web-applet for config, and from what I've read the version of java on the computer is critical to this working correctly.
This requirement may clash with an existing (and mission-critical) DAS client, which also demands a very specific version of the Java runtime. This DAS client will cease to function if the latest release of Sun Java is installed.
Anyone able to confirm the neeed for Java, or suggest a way to manage the equipment without changing the Java runtime?
-and yes I suppose I could dedicate a spare machine for the task, but it would be highly inconvenient to only be able to access the config from this one location.
Anyone got the lowdown on this? Is it likely to be a problem?
