I am trying to shutdown my sensing port on an IDS 4235 since I cannot seems to get the latest software FTP'ed over. I can do it on another so I am positive I am doing the ftp correctly.

I tried "conf t" "int sensing 0", it says the commands are deprecated and that I need to do the int gig0/0 command and go from there, but the OS doesn't like it. Any ideas would be helpful.

You don't mention what version you are on, but try:

conf t

service int

physical-interfaces gigabitEthernet0/0

admin-state disabled




replace gigabitEthernet0/0 with whatever sensing interface you need to disable.

Hi Dwane,

I bet you have to increase your FTP timeout.

This is often the case with large signature files :)
