I recently acquired a Cisco IDS 4210 through ebay and the unit was already configured with 512MB and IPS 5.1 code (byt the seller). Nonetheless given the unit only has 2 NIC (one for sensing and one for managment access)I can't configure inline mode operation (as it requires a pair).
I notice that there is another PCI slot in the unit and was wondering if I can add another PCI NIC into the unit to configure inline mode operation. I would appreciate if anyone can share their experience if they tried something similar before. Thanks.
