IPS 6.0 - unable to access IDM after update

Updated IPS 4235 from 5.1 to 6.0 - can;t access IDM anymore.

Fails with errors like 'Can't connect to server - null' or 'errNotSupported-Command not valid or not supported'.

java.lang.Exception: errNotSupported-Command not valid or not supported

Has anyone seen anything like that?

Advice: try it on test sensors first.

Re: IPS 6.0 - unable to access IDM after update

If the PC you are connecting from is

compliant, then you should not have a

problem connecting to IDM.

What operating system, browser,

and version are you trying to connect

from? What version of Java runtime

are you using?

Re: IPS 6.0 - unable to access IDM after update

Using Windows XP, IE 7.0.

I've tried JRE 5.0-Update10 and JRE 6.0.

Tried to delete cache in browser and JRE temp files. Tried to reload CIDS on sensor.

Tried Mozilla on the same system, same errors.

Re: IPS 6.0 - unable to access IDM after update

hi try to set the jre- paramter to 256m cause by default it uses 64m and idm requires 256m.

Re: IPS 6.0 - unable to access IDM after update

Thanks, I have that parameter for sure and everything works find for big number of sensors with IPS 5.x.

I guess I'll open a case with Cisco.

Re: IPS 6.0 - unable to access IDM after update

This is interesting because I use IDM almost exclusively when I want to configure something and the IDM has always worked. I'd suspect the java 1.5.10 based on past experience. I currently use Vista with IE7 and JRE 1.6 beta with no problems other than IE7's hangup about self-signed certificates. I have used XP and IE7, but I think I was using JRE 1.5b6. I will boot my XP partition and report back.
