Hi guys,i'm planning to do an IOS IPS configuration on a newly purchased 2851 router, the spec as below:
CISCO 2800 AdvanceIPservice :Version 12.4(15)T10
64MB CF default
My problem right now is,when i tried to configure the IPS feature,the SDM Express ver2.5 doesn't have the IPS tabs that allow me to configure. I noticed and highly suspected that is due to the express version of SDM,instead of the full/enhanced version of SDM. I tried download the full version SDM from Cisco,the file size is 14MB, and my current CF free space is only remaining 7MB.The IOS itself has used up 51MB. So i'm going to advice my customer that running IPS on the router is not possible due to the limited CF size. Can someone who experience in IPS correct me if i'm wrong. I'm fresh in security area.
PS:i know workaround is to installed CSM on a workstation then to configure and manage this router.
