Configuration Assistant a SDM Replacement?

Cisco Configuration Assistant going to be the replacement for SDM?

If it is, will SDM be needed on the router at all to run and setup?

Also, when will Cisco Configuration Assistant have IPS support. I noticed playing with it on my 871, it gave me no options on setting up IPS.


Re: Configuration Assistant a SDM Replacement?

Cisco Configuration Assistant simplifies the task of configuring, deploying, and administering Cisco small business network solutions.

Making sure the network is configured and operating properly is a complex, costly, and time-consuming task. For those of you who don't want to use Cisco Network Assistant for centralized management, but looking for an easy way of configuration of Cisco devices, there may be an option. If you have got an ISR series router, you will definitely have available also a tool called Cisco Security Device Manager or SDM.

SDM is a Java based configuration and monitoring tool which is usually stored in the device's flash, and it's accessible through a web interface of a device. Just enable a web server on your router (Router(config)# ip http server) and put your web browser to the address of your router.
