IDS configuration for the PIX firewall

Can I configure IDS on the PIX. I have looked through the documentation on the Cisco web site but could not find anything except how to configure shunning on a PIX using Cisco IDS UNIX Director. I don't want to use any external device and would like to use only the PIX. On the Cisco router with firewall features set you can configure IDS. So can I perform the same on the PIX or do I have to use external devices like sensors.

I am using the PIX-515 with version 6.3(1)

Thank you for your help.

Re: IDS configuration for the PIX firewall

Christophe,

Absolutely. As a matter of fact, the setup is very similar to IOS IDS. So if you have a familiarity with IOS IDS, you should have a head start. Take a look at the following from the command ref and if you have specific questions, let me know.

Good luck,

Scott
