ASA 5510 IPS Module Simple Question

I have a 5510 and am going to install the AIP10SP-K9 SSM module and am wondering what the gigabit port that comes on this is used for? Is it just for remote management?

thanks.

Yes, you are right with your assumption. This is the Command & Control-Port where you assign an IP-address and where you access your IPS with SSH and IDM. SDEE events are communicated through this interface. So this port has to be connected for example to your management-VLAN.

I think I got confused because I figured I could just go in via the ASA via the session 1 command and do all my configuration there. why do I need another management port since it's all in the same device.

thanks though

well, with the "session" command you only get that what is the serial console on other devices. But you can't use that to access the graphical user-interface.

And: The IPS and the ASA is *not* the "same device". They are two devices that just share the same chassis. But they are completely independent devices that are connected by a common backplane.
