Trying to run ASDM on Linux

As the title says, I'm trying to run ASDM on Linux (Mint 14), and failing miserably.  I have Oracle Java 6 installed.  Other web-based Java apps seem to work fine, however, when I try to open ASDM, whether directly from the ASA web interface or by running the jnlp file directly from my system, the Java splash screen comes up, "thinks" for about 10 seconds, and then closes.  Nothing else happens.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Jason

Hello Jason,

Can you share the logs you receive from the Java app?

Also do

debug http 255 on the ASA and try to connect

Share the outputs

I enabled debugging on the ASA, and the only message that came up was:

HTTP: Periodic admin session check  (idle-timeout = 1200, session-timeout = 0)

There really isn't much information in the log and trace files, but they are attached.

So, no logs,

Maybe the traffic is not even reaching the ASA..

cap capin interface xxxx( Where the host is)  match tcp host linux_IP_host host interface_ip_asa eq 443

Then try to connect:

and do

show cap capin

it does not appear to be.  There were 0 packets captured on the ASA when I tried to connet.  I also ran Wireshark on my Linux box, and there was nothing there either.

I'm guessing it's something with Java and the jnlp file.

Here is my Java version:

java -version

java version "1.6.0_43"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_43-b01)

Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 20.14-b01, mixed mode)

Well I removed Oracle Java and reinstalled OpenJDK:

java version "1.6.0_27"

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.12.3) (6b27-1.12.3-0ubuntu1~12.10.1)

OpenJDK Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)

It now works.

I'm going to stick with this for now.

Thanks.

Jason
