ips mode

hello,

am i right in saying;

1. if ips is in ips mode, then i have to use interface pair?

1. if we have interface pair, does this 2 interfaces has to be in different subnets?

Re: ips mode

1. Yes you are right you need two interfaces and IPS acts like bridge

2. IPS doesnt route between subnets and is used like transparent bridge - so you can place it between two computers in same network and its transparent for those PC

pc1 ----IPS ----pc2

BUT you can use also VLAN pairs - packets received on one of the paired VLANs are analyzed and then forwarded to the other VLAN in the pair.

Re: ips mode
