Catalyst 6500 and IPS

I have a catalyst 6500 switch on my network and I know it supports an IDS module.What I am not sure is an IPS.

Could somebody who knows be kind enough to tell me if there is the support of IPS in the Catalyst 6500 switch.

Re: Catalyst 6500 and IPS

The IDSM-2 module is capable of both IDS (promiscuous mode) AND IPS (inline mode).

So if you need IPS (inline mode) you still just buy the same IDSM-2 but configure it for InLine Interface Pair or InLine Vlan Pair mode instead of configuring for Promiscuous mode.

Re: Catalyst 6500 and IPS

May I have an example of configuration for idsm-2 in inline mode (IPS) :

suppose I want to inspect traffic between VLAN 300 and 400....?

Why are the sensor ports in trunk mode ?

Thanks
