How do I apply IPS licence to ASA, and also inital connection

Hi All


How do I install the IPS licence on my ASA 5525?

Also when doing the initial setup, I believe you session into it, once the ip address has been applied, do you connect via the mgnt port ?

Which type of IPS are you

Which type of IPS are you using - dedicated IPS software module or ASA CX with IPS license?

("show module" on the ASA will tell you.)

There's a Quick Start Guide

There's a Quick Start Guide for the ASA IPS module that describes in detail the initial setup and connectivity scenarios.

This is also covered in the ASA Configuration Guide.

Regarding licensing, once the IPS is setup and able to communicate with Cisco, it will pull down its license (and signature updates) automatically. The Cisco servers will verify the product serial number and license eligibility.
