Cannot config IPS on 871W router because of JAVA memory heap - Help!

Unanswered Question


I'm trying to use SDM 2.4.1 on a Cisco 871w Router (124-15T adv ip serv) to configure IPS. It states I need to increase my java memory heap to 256 to do so.

I've seen posts on how to increase the memory heap in Java (control panel --> java --> advanced --> -Xmx256m --> etc ..) but it causes fatal java errors for my systems.

This seems to happen on every PC I have using the latest JRE 1.6 on IE7 (WinXPsp2). I've also tried running the heap command at CMD> java -Xmx256m .. or -Xms256m -Xmx256m etc .. and it always displays an error ? or basic help page.

Are there any java pros that can help me out with this? or edit the sdm startup to increase heap dynamically?

any help is greatly appreciated.

I have also experienced the same problem.

The only workaround I have found so far was to use Firefox instead of IE.

I suspect it is a bug of Java JRE.

I can successfully use SDM 2.4.1 with Firefox 2.0 and JRE build 1.5.0_11-b03.
