Good day,

Hi, You need minimum sup-bootdisk:s3223-advipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF7.bin IOS to enable INLINE mode on 6500 series.

as per my knowledge,

the latest IOS is


for IDSM-2, if u upgrade to Engine 2 IOS, U can get update with E2 signatures and also U can manage from New Management Console like Cisco IPS manager Express 6.1.

I hope this will satisfy.
