    Question Troubles opening Java Webstart applications

    Hi guru's,

    I have some trouble with java webstart applications. I'm trying to run Cisco ASDM 6.0.
    I have Java JRE 1.5.0_14 and JRE 1.6.0_03 installed. I also installed javaws and bounded it to either of the versions of java. Then I tried to run the asdm.jnlp program.

    Now I get the following error from webstart:

    JNLPException[category: Download Error : Exception: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderE xception: unable to find valid certification path to requested target : LaunchDesc: null ]
    at com.sun.javaws.cache.DownloadProtocol.doDownload(D ownloadProtocol.java:650)
    at com.sun.javaws.cache.DownloadProtocol.isLaunchFile UpdateAvailable(DownloadProtocol.java:753)
    at com.sun.javaws.LaunchDownload.getUpdatedLaunchDesc (LaunchDownload.java:89)
    at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.downloadResources(Launcher .java:625)
    at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.handleApplicationDesc(Laun cher.java:256)
    at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.handleLaunchFile(Launcher. java:166)
    at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.run(Launcher.java:134)
    at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

    I have accepted the certificate of the site within firefox.
    Can someone point me in the right direction please?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have no previous experience with cisco software in question so I can't point you directly at the problem. Have you checked the ssl settings?

    I think I did. In windows it was enough to change to default settings and add the certificate. Don't know what to try next. I'm out of options.

    I have seen some Java apps only work in IE, and nothing else. Most notably is HP's WebJetAdmin. I wouldn't surprise me if something by Cisco was the exact same way.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    I can run it in firefox (windows).
    As I google it, it should work on linux. Is there a way to test a webstart application?

    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
