Make sure the ASA has access to the managment address on the IPS sensor. Also, add the ASA asa a host which is allowed to connect to the IPS in the IPS config.

service host


access-list /32

Can you ping the IPS from the ASA?

Does it prompt you for username/password?

  • Cisco Employee,

what version of ASA software and IPS software?

I had this problem when I was using ASA 7.1 and 7.2 with IPS 5.1(7). Old ASA with New IPS combination.

You may want to ensure that your Access List allows the IP address of the firewall to contact it.

*Addition* - You need to do this through your SSM configuration. You can EASILY do this by quickly running through your "setup" option and when it gets to "Modify Access-lists" Just say yes.. it will then ask what you want to permit, just punch in your firewall IP address. You can then hit enter till you get to the last stage and hit 2 to save the config and reload.
