Unanswered Question
Jan 21st, 2008

This question is largely directed at the CS-MARS development team.

Will the difference in features between GEN1 CS-MARS and GEN2 be equalized through software updated? I myself has slowly come to realize I bought the CS-MARS to early and would really need some of the features that seems to be exclusive to the GEN2 appliance.



I have this problem too.

I would be more specific if you can. What specific qualities/behavior in the GEN2 are you wanting on the GEN1? Supposedely, there will be a "code merge" later this year (version 6.x). "under the hood" the GEN2 and GEN1 appear to be so different that I will be suprised if the software is totally the same. However, the delta should certainly decrease though ("functional parity" as Cisco likes to say).

The feature I'm missing the most is the ability to retrieve the PCAP file directly from the IDS raw message link. This, as I understand, is exclusive to the Gen2 models.
