Re: Upgrading IDS4.0 to IPS

To just upgrade a box to 5.1, I would use the command line (in configutation mode) upgrade command. I use a plain vanilla http server installed on a laptop to upgrade IPS devices.

However, the in-line version can function (and is more versatile, in my opinion) differently. You can still use the box in promiscious mode just like 4.X versions. However, it is my preference to put the box in-line. I think you can do a lot more with the box this way, thus it takes a little planning to put the box in-line.
