IPS Signature licensing

Hi,

I am going to configure IPS on a C2921 (c2900-universalk9-mz.SPA.150-1.M2.bin ) for a customer. The customer has the security license.

But when I look at the Cisco Feature Navigator I can see that it says additional license required: IOS IPS update.

So do I really need another license in order to configure and use IPS?

If yes, how can I get that license?

Regards,

Laurent

IPS Subscription can normally be purchased through reseller, similar to how you normally purchase Smartnet contract.

Re: IPS Signature licensing

Absolutely correct. You would need to purchase the IOS IPS license to be able to update the signatures. You don't need license to use and configure the IOS IPS, however, you would need license to update the signatures to the latest signature packs.

The license will be called IPS Svc (IPS Subscription).

Hope that helps.
