     Dear all,

ping signature is not firing unless i ping the IDS itself

signature no.2004.

the customer wants to test that the IDS detects the ping in the IDSM-2 as a test for it's working or not.

i tuned the signature no.2004 but it did not fire unless you ping the IDS itself.

Can anybody help me in this or explain it to me .

Best Regards,

Ayman Yehia

Check the configuration in the 6500/7600 router you are using to pass traffic to or through the IDSM to verify that your packet is really reaching it.

On the IDSM check the statistics with "show stat analysis" to see if you're really seeing traffic on the sensor.
