CISCO SDM why oh why oh why!

You would think a company like cisco would be able to produce a management tool that works.

Now I know SDM has issues with different java versions in windows and that in its self seems to be pot luck if it works or not.

But getting it running under Linux, oh my god! every thing sees to be against me here. And the worst thing about it all is how close I can get. I sure its doing this just to tease me.

I have tried old and new Firefox, about 6 versions of JAVA and still no joy. Its time to go home now and no remote access to the firewall so it will have to wait till Tuesday for my next play. So email still not working..

Ah well the weekend ahead, walks with the dogs, and some nice food to look forward to. Oh and of course lots of studying. 😉

Have a great one.

503 Errors and CBT nuggets

I was just trying to find a plug in to allow mobile phones to better browse the site when I came across the 503 error below.

Something has gone wrong with our servers. It’s probably Matt’s fault.

We’ve just been notified of the problem.

Hopefully this should be fixed ASAP, so kindly reload in a minute and things should be back to normal.

Don’t you love it when people take that little extra time to personalise a site, almost makes you glad it went down so you get to see it. Well its back up now so I will be looking to add mobile support soon as well.

On a different note, it appears CBT nuggets has just released the CCNP ROUTE videos… If you haven’t come across CBT nuggets then you are missing out, (unless of course you are not a geek and actually have a life 😉 ) but for us Geeks we know CBT as one of the best sources of IT training around. As soon as the SWITCH exam is out the way, I will be heading on over there for my copy. Mean while your find the link to there site in the menu to your right.

OK back again to studying, and planning my next Tech post.

Enjoy your night, evening, morning or what ever the time is in your part of the world.
