I have configured the internal IDSM cards for auto update, and I see hits against our firewall ACL for this traffic but the update seems out of date on the IPS.. can anyone tell me how to troubleshoot this?
yes once you have HTTP also allowed, you should see auto update working.
The way you have configured the ACL is interesting :-) and i dont see any reason why it should not work. Lets wait for the next auto-update attempt by the IPS and see what happens. let me know how it goes!!
