Quick test to confirm IPS is working?

Hi,

Something so simple seem to be difficult to find online anywhere.  We configured IPS on a Cisco ISR 871 and applied it inbound for our WAN and LAN interfaces.

Question is this ... is there a quick IPS test I can do to confirm that the IPS working?

Something like a webpage that has content that would be blocked by one of the IPS signitures.

Thanks in advanced!

Re: Quick test to confirm IPS is working?

Basically from what i remember from the IPS trainings enable Signature 2000 or 2004 for ICMP (not sure about that somewhere around these numbers) and try to ping something - if you configured everthing correct this should trigger an allert.

HTH (if so please rate)

cheers Michael
