SDM Predefined Policy??

Unanswered Question

I am using SDM for the first time to set up a 871 router. There is a predfined policy that just seems counter intuitive. It is found in the Firewall and ACL section and is called sdm-permit. It is applied from the out-zone to self. This is the confusing part the Action is Drop. I'm guessing that this is just a semantics thing, but when I see a policy nanmed Permit I naturally think that it is going to pass traffic and not drop it. Does anybody else find this confusing or do I just not understand Cisco terminology?

I have this problem too.

Yes, what you describe is confusing. My recommendation, based on my [thankfully] limited experience with the 800 series, is to avoid SDM do to limitations and use the command line.
