No JRE Support in IceWeasel


So I need to be able to Sun JRE with in my Iceweasel browser and I installed what I thought I needed:

Code:
cwilliams@cwilliams:~$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
[sudo] password for cwilliams: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
sun-java6-jre is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 36 not upgraded.
So when I try to connect to my Cisco Firewall which requires this, I get the following screenshot errors:

Screenshot 1

Screenshot 2

Screenshot 3

I tried this on Ubuntu 7.10 and it worked perfectly however I believe I am missing something on Debian (Testing) and this is a 32 bit machine by the way...

Did I do something wrong or do I have to enable Iceweasel to be able to use the JRE plugin or something?

apt-get update && apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin [or -jdk, for dev-work] ; then do: update-alternatives --config java

Then check in aboutlugins in iceweasel. You should have something like:
Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_04-b12

File name: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.04/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_04

The OP has jre (see his first post). It looks like he needs the plugin now, as Farslayer & Craigevil suggested. (Craigevil is working overtime on this problem. He suggested sun-java6-plugin here and on another board.)
