I think you cant.

Use NAM for it.

Re: IDS as sniffer?

Can you tell me how to use NAM to do so? We already have NAM installed and running fine but we are not using it much.

Yes, it can be done. Here is a link detailing how to do this.

The sniff can be triggered on a signature alert. The sniff will miss the first packet in the conversation, but you can still view this packet in the event viewer. I believe future versions of the IDS software will re-insert that first packet back into the sniff.

I have been through the link. But , I dont have the " PACKET CAPTURE DEVICE" selection option on my screen. Here are the versions of CSPM and IDS:

Sensor version is : 3.0(1)S4

CSPM version is : 2.3.3i

Please comment.
