Configure IPS on Router

Dear All,

I am novice in the security, excuse me if my question is very basic.

I want to configure IPS on Cisco 2821 router. I do not have any server for storing the logs.

Kindly let me know:

Is it possible to configure IPS on a router 2821?

Is it going to increase the CPU utilisation?

Kindly let me have the command/link to configure IPS on the router.

Thnx,

Ashish

Re: Configure IPS on Router

Hi Ashish,

You can configure IPS on Cisco 2821.Just load it with an image that supports security features.

Here's a good Q&A guide that may help you.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/iosswrel/ps6537/ps6586/ps6634/prod_qas0900aecd806fc530.html

For configuration, you can refer to http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6634/products_configuration_example09186a008097dbe8.shtml

The CPU util depends on the number of signatures enabled and the amount/type of traffic the router is handling.

HTH.
