cant ping IDS

I have the IDS installed in module 5 of cat 6509 switch. i logged into ids and configured the ip, gateway ip etc. i able to see all the configuration wen i do a show config.

my problem is that i can not ping anything from the ids or ping ids from anyhwere.

cat ip :

ids id:

defalut gateway for 253 vlan :

The ip of the ids needs to be in the 253 vlan. and the switch's ip is in vlan 1.

Re: cant ping IDS

Have you configured which vlan the command and control port belongs to?

set vlan 253 5/2

Port 5/1 is the monitoring port. Port 5/2 is the command and control port.

The command and control port should be configured for the vlan for the subnet it belongs to. The vlan for the command and control port does have to be in the same vlan as the sc0 port of the switch itself.

The monitoring port should be configured to trunk the vlans that you want to monitor, and then configure either Span or VACL Capture to send packets to the monitoring port.

Re: cant ping IDS

Thanks ! I am able to ping the ids and remotely login.

But I did not understand the following statement you had written.

"... then configure either Span or VACL Capture to send packets to the monitoring port"

What is this and how do I do it?
