5512 IPS

I currently have a cisco ASA 5512 with IPS.

I have eth0 connected to my WAN

          eth1 connected to my LAN ( Switch )

I have setup my sensor on which seems to be on the management interface?

Currently i don't use the managment interface for anything but now i have configured this will i have to plug the management interface into my lan?

just confused to how it will check the trafffic as anything coming from the outside ( internet ) wll go via eth0 which goes to eth1 internal?

Don't understand how the management interface will be able to check against attacks? obviously i will be using inline mode.

just to add on the cisco IDM interface is shows Management0/0 assigned virtual sesnor 0 NONE

Then i have portchannel0/0 backplane interface that is assigned virtual sensor 0 VS0

ok think i have anwsered my own question.

the management0/0 is just simply i was of giving me access to the IDS. the actual sensor maps to port channel0/0 (backplane) so anything go through the ASA will go via the sensor.
