Shouldn’t require either if it is a "clean" unit.
Logon to  (note https ) and in the PDM logon screen hit enter.

When logging in via PDM, you'll get 2 separate login prompts.  Both times leave the username box blank, & enter the enable password.

I've tried both of those.  No luck.  I restored it to factory-default, but still not working.  It gives me an error 'Exception: access denied' in the IE pop-up java applet.  

I uninstalled and reinstalled Java (2 different versions even), but still no luck.  I tried IE and Firefox.  I reset IE security zones, and restored defaults as well.  This worked fine last time I tried it, but that was from a different computer.  I doubt this is related to the computer because of the error message pointing towards what I believe is a username or password issue, but I will try another computer anyhow.

RobWill, you nailed it on the head.  I found a version on one of the posts that gave me a version that works.  I installed it, and all is well.  I suspected it may have been the problem, but after trying 2 different versions, I didn't think that was the problem anymore.  

Sorry that I didn't catch that java error the first time, or I would have passed it on in the initial post to both of you.  It was in the bottom corner of the pop-up window.  Many thanks.
