To monitor the ips we use Monitoring Center for Security 2.1. In VMS SecMon 2.1, there is an action to block a Host or a Network by right clicking on the affending host.
According to the documentation for secmon viewer "Blocking a host causes a sensor to block all traffic emanating from the source IP address associated with the selected event. In a similar way, blocking a network causes the sensor to block all traffic emanating from the network that contains the source IP address of the selected event. Blocking is accomplished through a properly configured Cisco router."
We have installed an IPS inline using a vlan pair.
I would like to be able to deny an attacker inline by manually clicking on an action from within VMS SecMon but when I use the block action the host is still permitted. It seams that this action will only work by configuring a blocking device. i.e. a Cisco ios router or a pix. Is this statement correct?
Is it possible from within the VMS console to tell the IPS to deny an attacking host or network by manually commanding it to do so in the same way blocking is done?
