Is there a way to export the rules off the IPS so the actual rules can exported? I am using a 4240 6.x IPS and through the GUI I am able to export a "summary" of the rules, but not the actual rules themselves.
Is there a way to do this through the CLI or GUI?
Let me know if this is confusing
No, your "rules" are put into the configurations, signatures from cisco are downloaded in a compiled format and installed on the sensors harddrive as files, and compiled into the signature database. I don't think you can see any more details about a signature in the cli, than you can in the GUI, but i may be wrong
