Sorry for the newb question but I'm in a new job and am having trouble grasping some basic Cisco IPS Concepts.
When I do a show ver I see the OS Version being 2.4.30-IDS-smp-bigphys and the IPS Version being 7.0(1)E3.
Could someone please explain the difference ? It appears the IPS version is fairly recent but I am clueless on the OS Version. I cant seem to find upgrades to the OS Version either.
I'm use to .bin files where it's mostly one in the same.
