What is the current verion of IPS software ?

I have a ASA5520. Just got an ASA-SSM-AIP-20. Currently manage the ASA with the ADSM software. What additional sw is required to manage the IPS card ?

Many thank,

Re: What is the current verion of IPS software ?

Three no cost ways:

1. built-in CLI

2. built-in web server IDM (Individual Device Manager)(https://)

3. download IME from Cisco website. If you connect to the built-in web server (see above), it will allow you to run the included device manager (IDM), or give you a pointer to where to download IME.

IME is a Windows app that loads a database (mysql) behind it and can manage up to 5 sensors and aggregate/archive alerts, etc.

Upon further consideration, I believe you ASDM knows how to manage the IPS. Depending on your version of ASA software and IPS software, you may need to update the ASA software and ASDM for the best results.
