ASA IPS, auto update issue


I am having an issue with auto update on the IPS module installed the ASA.

Auto Update Statistics

lastDirectoryReadAttempt = 06:00:34 UTC Wed Feb 23 2009

= Read directory:

= Error: AutoUpdate exception: Receive HTTP response failed [3,212]

lastDownloadAttempt = N/A

lastInstallAttempt = N/A

nextAttempt = 06:00:00 UTC Thu Feb 24 2009

I can see from the above that there is a HTTP response error, I have checked and there does not seem to be any other unit stopping the responses. With regards to the ASA config do I need to allow the IPS module though the ACL's or NAT statements?

Many thanks MJ


Re: ASA IPS, auto update issue

Management traffic from the AIP-SSM module will use the module's management ethernet interface. To answer your question, it depends on what network (or firewall interface) you have the AIP-SSM Management interface connected to.

Re: ASA IPS, auto update issue

I am also having the same problem with auto update with an ASA and IPS card. The IPS card management port is on the inside network. Any help will be great

Many thanks for the respose.

Sorry I have not made any progress with this as yet: the only thing I have done is us the packet tracer, which passed I am just going to check the route of the packet once it has left the interface as it has got to be that or the URL is wrong.
