Simple question: is IPS IOS appliance or software (win/linux)?

I'm newbie in security.

Can somebody provide me information about IPS. I want ot know does IPS is running on IOS or other software?

If it is IOS - could somebody provide me IOS version that I can download for test IPS?

IPS runs on standalone 4200 series IPS Appliances, Network modules (which go on the ASA, Routers and C6k switches) and IOS Routers.

IPS standalone appliances and network modules run on the linux 2.4 kernel whereas IPS on Routers run on IOS.

Here is the web link for 4200 series standalone IPS appliances :

Looks like Cisco IOS Software Release 12.4(11)T and later T-Train releases support IPS however I am not an IOS expert. More details can be found on this IOS-IPS data sheet :

I found on site

Cisco Integrated Services Routers Intrusion Prevention System Module > Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) System Software > 7.0(1)E3 > IPS-AIM-K9-sys-1.1-a-7.0-1-E3.img >

How I can use this module now in my working router??
