Java memory heap error when using Cisco ASDM 6.2

Everytime I try to access the IPS tab when using Cisco ASDM 6.2 on a Cisco ASA 5510 I get a Java memory heap error. I have increased the memory size within Java to 512. I am using the following command line within Java.................-Xmxs512m. I still get the error.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's -Xmx512m (and, let's say, -Xms256m), not -Xmxs512m.

I have tried it with -Xmx512m / -Xms512m / -Xmxs512. None of them work. The reason for the different variations is because I found on them searching so I have tried them all.

have you restarted your machine ? you are accessing IPS tabs ?  does that means u have successfully connected to the ASDM ?

I have connected to the ASDM and have been using it. The error comes up when I try to access the IPS module.

The solution I have come up with is to go back to Java 1.5. Everything works fine with that version installed. Don't know if this is a Java problem or Cisco.
