Looking for an explanation of the gig0/0 interface in the AIP-SSM-20. The ASA runs 8.2 and the IPS runs 6.2.
The documentation I'm reading doesn't mention it all. I want a management interface separate from the default connection between the ASA and the ips module.
M0/0 is the only interface you would configure IP address on. That would be used for the management traffic.
You do not configure any IP on G0/0 or G0/1 as the traffic that is to be inspected flows from the ASA to the module internally. You just define the policy-map on ASA to identify the traffic that flows to the module for inspection.
