We report first results of numerical calculations on Ikeda instabilities ina folded Fabry-Perot resonator pumped by a gaussian beam matched to the cavity. Oscillations of periods tR, 2tR and 4tR, followed by quasi-periods 2.5tR and 5tR, are observed en route to chaotic responses. The tR oscillation arises from nonlinear nonreciprocity.
