Please tell us what IPS device and version software you currently have, for example a 4240 sensor running 5.17E1.

Re: How to download Signature from cisco

You need more than just a signature update, you need at least a service pack or version update first.

All the current signature packs require you to run one of the "E1" versions of service packs. You will need to install either 5.1(7)E1 or 6.0(4)E1 before you are able to apply the latest signature update.

This version of software is quite old, indicating quite a period of neglect on your IDSM, do you have a current license on this?

You can apply a service pack to an unlicensed sensor, but you can't apply a sigupdate. Fortunately the service pack update the signatures as of their release date.

1. In which scenario license part is required in IDSM and IPS appliance too.

2.If i m going to initialise new IDSM r IPs box..How to procede in upgrading image,image service pack and signatures.

3.Config steps to upgrade image and signatures.

4.Best way of tuning the Intrusion detection and prevention techniques

Re: How to download Signature from cisco

IDSM & IPS appliance require a license for applying signature updates. If you upgrade your IDSM sensor to IPS 6.0 , your sensor would automatically be running on E1.

This link should help you in configuring IPS 6.0 sensor.

Thanks
