Advise IPS on a Cisco 877


I am using the SDM and noticed my home 877 can use IPS. Can anyone offer some advise on how to set up IPS on this router, I just want to get something basic running then I can learn from that.

I have 2 interfaces, the dialer 1 (outside) and VLAN1 (inside), should IPS be on both or just the outside?

Re: Advise IPS on a Cisco 877

You don't have to pay for the router based IOS IPS signatures yet. But next year there will be a license requirement in order to even run the IPS feature (not just to upgrade signatures). Fortunately Cisco has a FREE Cisco License Manager to help you with all your new licensing requirements.

Re: Advise IPS on a Cisco 877


This really helped, but I have a few questions.

I followed the document, but how do I know it's all working? :) I'm very new to IPS.

I have 2 interfaces:

dialer1 - outside interface

vlan1 - inside

I applied the IPS to the inbound side of dialer 1 is this right?

Also page 13 has a screenshot of all the signatures, inmy SDM it's all blank.
