Event viewer for Cisco Pix 515 and IDS IOS 3600 series Router

I was wandering if there is available any IDS Event viewer (preferably a free one) that can be used for monitoring the alarms triggered on a Pix firewall and cisco router.

I.e. Can the IEV be used? If yes, what do I need to configure on the Firewall and Router?

Is there any other software for configuring (using GUI and not CLI) the alarms and signiture triggering?

Regards.

Hi,

The IDS appliance and the PIX firewall each has a free management software on it. The IDS has an additional piece of software that is called the Event Viewer. This will receive the alarms and display them.

But I guess, in your case, you are looking for implementing IDS feature on PIX and the router.

Both the router and PIX IDS implementation can send send the events to a syslog server.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Another good method for monitoring and alarming is to use a syslog demon (Kiwi syslog is very good) and filter on %4000 events - In the PIX error codes, these are defined as the IDS events.
