Stupid IDS Question

Yes, I know this is idiotic, but I'm not finding it in my book. Please don't flame me...

IDS 4215, I'm in the command line and have enabled an additional sensing port. It's working fine - how do I save the config change? wr mem is not so much working and I don't see a save option when I use "?" - any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Re: Stupid IDS Question

fwiw, while the "copy current-config" command is probably a good idea...it isn't equivalent to a "wr mem" on an IOS router. When making most changes via the CLI, you will be asked to "apply changes". If you say yes, the config is written. Now if the sensor is rebooted, those changes will be there.
