The IDS-4FE-INT is the official part number of the card, and only this card is supported in an IDS-4215 chassis.

As you noted, the Pix had 2 types of 4FE cards that it supported.

One of these is the same card as the IDS-4FE-INT part number (the PIX-4FE-66 I beleive). And that Pix part number which is the same card as the IDS-4FE-INT, can be used in the IDS-4215.

So I believe that IDS-4FE-INT and PIX-4FE-66 are 2 Cisco Part Numbers for the same 4FE NIC card. The Cisco part numbers differ because of which product it was sold for.

The other Pix 4FE part number (PIX-4FE I think), however, was an older rev PCI card and can NOT be used in the IDS-4215.

The IDS/IPS software will Not recognize that older card and that older card has never been sold as an IDS/IPS part number.

Hope this answers your question.

thank you for your input. i was experimenting with the pix-4fe in the ids4215 and found that it did indeed recognize it. was able to ping out each port also. thats why i was wondering about the pix-4fe. because my boss told me the same thing. maybe we are misidentifing the card?

If it works in the IDS, it must be the 66 version, as the 33 version will not be recognised.
