i do have an IPS-4240 running in my network.it was running using IPS Version 7.0(2) E3.
As long as we cannot take any signature update before upgrading our sensor to Engine E4, i was obliged to go on and upgrade the IPS.
One problem occured with ASDM. the ASDM-IDM running was version 7.0 [V1.5(37)].
Using the same ASDM i cannot acces the Sensor, it do always ask for upgrade. even while pressing "upgrade now" several times the upgrade shows as successfull but in real life it do not success. it do still run under the same version.
i can access the IPS through https, then run ADM, it do works and it do appears version V1.5(49). If i do try to save the dm-launcher at my HD and then run the setup it do not works.
sum up, each time i have to access the IPS through ASDm, i have to use the HTTPS first then the "run ADM" from the site opened second.
ASDM is the GUI image for ASA firewall. You can upload the ASDM to your ASA firewall.
IPS version 7.0.2(E4) is the actual image/software of the IPS module.
I would just keep it simple and use IDM instead. It would have created an IDM shortcut on your desktop if you access the IPS module via https. You can just access the IPS directly using the IDM launcher instead of ASDM.
yes you are right, and it is clear for me, but i think using ASDM-IDM launcher can
be used for both ASA and IPS.
but in my case currently, i am upgrading only the IPS to 7.0(2)E4 from version 7.0(2)E3. so i don't want to loose the ability to access both ASA and IPS(with new version).
in addition, when i do Access the IPS through Https, it do not create any shortcut on my screen. moreover, when i do try and click on "You can also install DM Launcher to run IDM." i got the DM Laucnher with version 1.5(37) and not with version 1.5(49)
- i rebooted the sensor, same issue.
- i cleared the cache folder in the path "C:\Users\Administrator\.asdm\cache" & "C:\Users\Administrator\.idm\cache" also same issue
