Re: CSPM and IDSM on different networks

Adding a new network just for the CSPM machine can be ind of tricky so here is a trick that I use:

Close down CSPM and restart it, this should clear your topology since had not been saved before, if it does not clear it then go ahead and deleat the current entries you made for CSPM and it's network.

Now add a dummy temporary sensor, but give it an address in the same network that CSPM resides ( for example). Give it a made up hostname, hostid etc...

The wizard should prompt you for the default router ip and create the network for you.

Once the network is created, right click on it and there should be an option for adding a new host.

When you select it should let you know that it detected the CSPM box in that network address space, and ask if you want to add it.

Once you have CSPM in the topology then add you real IDSM module on the network and then delete the dummy sensor from network.

Now when you hit Save or Update eveything should be saved fine.

Re: CSPM and IDSM on different networks

There is a way to do this properly, create a new network. But doing what marcabal just said is a slick way of having the tool figure out all the options/settings for you.

Good tip.
