    I've just upgraded to SDM 2.2.3 and still certain buttons do not
    work. Logs and Traffic Status in Monitoring, Additional Tasks in
    Config. Why is this? Nothing has changed for years except my recent
    upgrade (which failed to fix the issue). Cisco 857W box with 12.4(6)
    T4 IOS.

    Have you upgraded the java on your computer?
    Try installing different (older) java version on your computer.

    Well, that is an interesting viewpoint. I have been working with
    Cisco for 13 years with the command line, I am far from clueless.
    I have had a look at the various web GUI thingies over several
    years and have always simply given up in disgust. It seems that
    it is required that you change the web browser permissions
    to allow everything from anybody.

    You need version this of that, special permissions like this. Load of
    crap.
    Waste of time.

    Exactly no other web application is so onerous. If you want to do
    cisco stuff, you have to learn the command line interface.

    The CLI is however quite beautiful. Proper work of art.
    [more strictly, it was a work of art 10 years ago and is
    still adequate(ish) but it for sure could do with an update]

    For example, a full screen config editor (perhaps as
    smooth to use as Notepad - cira 1990) would be just
    about the best thing since sliced bread.

    I think calling it a web interface is misleading - it's an application you
    run on your PC that you download over HTTP from the router first. Nobody
    would call [say] Office 2007 a web application because it's possible to
    download it from Microsoft's website before running it.
    Vim, dammit; if it's going to be 'updated' then it will need syntax
    highlighting and regexps at least.

    ASDM is better IMHO than SDM. Cisco would do better by letting SDM die [if
    not supporting current versions of Java isn't already letting it die] and
    improving ASDM so it supports IOS. The feature sets are so close anyway [was
    pleasantly surprised to see EIGRP and Netflow on ASAs now] that it couldn't
    be that hard.

    Thanks guys for proving to me that Cisco is stuck in the last
    centuary. I have dumped the box, CD etc into the round filling
    cabinet! I don't know how old windows is but I do remember the first
    3.1 interface and being a little sad that the DOS command line was
    being dumbed down. But I grew with it. Why can't Cisco wake up and
    move on - arrogant bunch of ludite nerds. Because they no longer fit
    in the world of IT I have dropped them entirely - this must be the
    most satisfying decision I have made for years!!!
