Cicso Pix 501 v6.3 PDM access using MJVM not Sun Java.

Where can I install MJVM (original version that came with XP) to access my Pix 501 v6.3 firewall via PDM as I can not access with SUN's version of java?

Uninstall all the JRE's present in the machine. Then download it from here; While installing make sure all the browsers are closed.

Thanks, this points me to build 3810 - which is an upgrade. It will only run if I ahve MS VM allready installed, as I get the message - " The setup will only upgrade over an existing version of the Microsoft VM" I don't have the MJVM installed. Do you knwo where I can get it from?

Actually before we started all this, what JRE did you have ? Can you download 1.4.2 from SUN site and just install that ? Don't go for 1.5

See if it works.

installed it. got the following messages.
First message, do I want to accept the certificate fromweb site Pix.marko.net.au +
Second message, Hostname Mismatch the hostname in the server security certificate does not match the name of the server.
Third message, do you want to trust the signed applet distributed by cisco systems?

The I get the message down the bottom of the browser saying: Exception: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission java.version read).
dont know what to do now, keep getting the same information.

RSA Key

The setup process generates an RSA key automatically. To generate an RSA key manually, follow these steps:

Step 1 Enter configuration mode:

pixfirewall# configure terminal


Step 2 Remove the existing RSA key, if applicable:

pixfirewall (config)# ca zeroize rsa


Step 3 Generate a new RSA key:

pixfirewall (config)# ca generate rsa key 512


Note It might take 30 or more seconds for the command prompt to return.

Step 4 Display the new RSA key:

pixfirewall (config)# show ca mypubkey rsa


Step 5 For access to PDM, you must specify a client that is permitted to access the PIX Firewall HTTP server and then enable the HTTP server. Use the following command to specify a client that is permitted to access the HTTP server:

pixfirewall (config)# http ip_address [netmask] [if_name]


"ip_addressThe host or network authorized to initiate an HTTP connection to the PIX Firewall.

"netmaskThe network mask for the HTTP IP address.

"if_nameThe interface name on which the host or network initiating the HTTP connection resides.

Step 6 Enable the HTTP server:

pixfirewall (config)# http server enable


Step 7 Save the RSA key:

pixfirewall (config)# ca save all


Step 8 Save the configuration:

pixfirewall (config)# write memory


Do the above.

Then try; if still it doesn't work, then let me know what browser you're using. Try acccessing with IE 6.0

Rajesh

even though some of these steps had been performed previously, I have retraced those steps and the same outcome had occured.
The IE that I have been using is IE6.0 that has been SP2-ed on the XP Pro OS. I think the problem is more with the version of java as it needs to be MSJVM then with anything else but I'm willing try anything. Keep in mind that SP1a and SP2 remove the MSJVM from the workstation and the user must install a Sun JAVA engine
To add some more info, I have built an XP Pro box with no SP of any nature, and installed the msjavx86.exe and ran the update. Once this complete and then browsed to the pix and it worked first go no issues. any ideas?

Thanks the info helped this is what got it to resolve. It seems that SP1a and SP2 do a half ass job on removing the MSJVM. This is what I needed to do on an XP Pro SP2 w/s.
  1) UNinstall using the MSJVM uninstall all, located at http://virtualmachine.no-ip.info/
          --Go to download, and select the Micrososft Java Virtula Machine Uninstall link which will eventually download the unmsjvm.exe file.
  2) Run and uninstall the msjvm.
  3) Install the msjavx86.exe (most likely build 3805) - this can be located from the same url as above. Obtain the download that ahs all files including the security undate 3810.
        a) Run msjavx86.exe first then reboot
        b) run undate 3810 and reboot.
  4) Go into IE 6.0 - Internet Options - Advnaced (Tab) - scroll down and untick any Sun Java that may be isntalled and selected, and thats it. it should work.
