how do i setup SDM on a new 1721 correctly? i tftp'd the 4 SDM files to flash, enabled http server and setup a usr/pwd with priv 15. i get the login prompt in IE error 401 unauthorised. dunno what is messed up? i really need help here someone please reply soon.
i sort of getting there now guys. ios was fine. i added the following lines
: http authentication local
: line vty 0 4
: privilege level 15
: login local ; remove login & password lines
:transport input telnet
: transport input telnet ssh
:logging buffered 51200 warning
authentication worked and this window was ok'd to close, now second window says "SDM express for 10.10.10.1 will open in another window. do not close this window until you exit SDM express" but the second window hasnt launched after 5mins... probably the SDM ver is old, i have v2.1.1 from the cd.
ok, i opened up java manager and i got this error hostname router and url 10.10.10.1 don't match. i clicked continue anyway and now the fatal error has occured :
ES Startup Error
Application ES has not been granted with the necessary privileges in order to startup successfully, or another unknown error occurred during startup. Please close all involved browser windows and try again by granting all requested privileges.
ok guys, i have lift off now with URL https://10.10.10.1 and thanks to another post title 1811 & SDM i.e go to IE options/advanced.. place tick beside "allow active content to run in files in My Computer". to get to the final working SDM express screen however i encounter two popup prompt screens:
HTTPS - warning ( th
The hostname in the server security certificate does not match the name of the server.
hostname of the url : 10.10.10.1
hostname from the certificate : router.
do you want to proceed... yes
then second popup
Warning - Security
Do you want to accept the certificate from web site "router". for the purpose of exchanging encrypted information?
publisher authenticity verified by "unknow issuer"
! the security certificate was issued by a company that is not trusted
i the security certificate has not expired and is still valid
Caution : router asserts that this content is safe. you should always accept this content if you trust "router" to make that assertion....click on always and voila, i finally get the SDM express screen with all the workings, to prove it works i set the router clock to sync with my PCtime and it worked indeed.
i think the second prompt screen is normal but the first screen prompt can be tidied up so that it doesn't popup everytime.
can someone agree this is fixable or is this just normal prompts in the way SDM express is accessed via IE?
do i need to change the hostname of the router or adjust the router config ?
ok guys, when i use http://10.10.10.1, i dont get the two popup prompts mentioned in the last thread and secondly when i use https://10.10.10.1 , these two popup prompts are i suspect just normal IE security and certificate prompts. so, now I think i have SDM fully operational with either http or https. thanks for tuning in and hope this helps someone else in the future. now i am off to secure my 1721 with SDM express. after securing my 1721 router with SDM express, i will post further updates if http or https access falls over again via IE.
