Hi,


Thanks for the help. I am actually more concerned regarding the placement of IPS and in which mode I should configure IPS.


1. Promiscous.

2. Inline.


Best Regards,

Rahim

See it depends on requirement...promiscous means in parallel to your network , which means the first packet would always go through the network/IDS and then IDS would start taking actions of consecutive packets..inline is blocking the very first packet..


see of this helps more..
