I'm using VMS 2.2 with IPS MC 2.1 and I can't add sensor IPS/IOS, router 1841 with IOS Advanced Security.

Look my config to import:

Import sensor configuration

IP Address: X.X.X.X

Group: IOS

Sensor name: rt-cs

Use SSH Keys: true

Port: 443

Use SSH Credentials for SDEE: true

After the connection to router, I've received this message:

Error : Error importing configuration files from the sensor - Unable to get sensor version

Please help me to solve this problem

Check the sensor from CLI if the VMS' ip address is permitted on the access list if not please try to add it:

config t

service Host


accessList ipAddress netmask

But this configuration doesn´t work in Cisco Router, only in IDS Appliance. I want to import Cisco Router com IPS enable.
