ASA 5510 with IPS policies are firing but action is not taken with IPS in inline configuration.

Hello,

We have an ASA 5510 with the SSM-10 module installed. ASA is running version 8.2 and IPS is version 7.1. We have put the module into inline mode in order for it to actively deny traffic, but we see policies that are firing without being acted upon. Not sure if this is a misconfiguration on our part or something else. Attached is the IPS statistics printout. If someone has any suggestions from looking at this printout, please comment.

Thanks folks.

Try using GUI (IDM/IME) and

Try using GUI (IDM/IME) and verify your trigger actions . They are many options.

Select options like deny packet inline or deny attacker inline etc....
