This is typical of the problems with using Java as a management interface for a network device.
The Management Application (graphical user interface used to configure the Unit’s software) runs as a stand-alone Java Web Start application (tested on Microsoft Windows™ operating system only). The application requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6.0_07 or higher, although there are issues with some of the JRE releases. See “Java Runtime Environment Version 6.0 Problems” on page 19 for details

You are joking right ?
