I am doing ASA5510 with IPS, initial setup. I can access ASA from ASDM. But when I click the IPS tab in ASDM, it will retrieve the management IP of the IPS, but finally says "unable to connect".
I tried even chaning management IP using CLI, still no luck.
Any ideas ?
In addition to connecting the AIP-SSM to your LAN, as Sushil suggested, you will need to assign an IP address, netmask, gateway and place your management host's IP address into the AIP-SSM's allowed hosts list. You can do all this by connecting to the AIP-SSM via the ASA using the "session 1" command, loging in (cisco/cisco by default) and running "setup".
Is the management interface of SSM connected to your local lan.At the back of asa,where aip-ssm is plugged in,you would see a management interface.This management interface should have a cable running to your local lan switch or router.There has to be a connectivity from local lan to the management interface so that aip-ssm info. could be retrieved.
Please rate if helps. :)
