IDS Software 3.1 for IDS 4235

1. Will the ISD Software 3.1 shipped with the IDS 4235 box or must it be ordered separately?

2. How much costs the software license using it under W2K?

3. Does I need SMARTnet for new software versions or only for the IDS 4235 box?

Re: IDS Software 3.1 for IDS 4235

The 3.1 software is an upgrade service pack.

The software upgrades can be downloaded from CCO and are available to users with SMARTnet support contracts.

Sensor software upgrades download site:

The sensor software license is covered under the standard SMARTnet contracts for the sensor appliance hardware, no additional contract is needed for the sensor software.

Refer to the IDS-4235 data sheet and Cisco pricing tool for the available SMARTnet contracts and prices.

NOTE: The sensor SMARTnet contract covers all software running on the IDS-4235 as well as the IEV (Intrusion Detection Event Viewer) that can be downloaded from the sensor, installed on a Win 2K box, and be used to monitor up to 3 sensors.

The sensor SMARTnet contract does not, however, cover the software licensing for the enterprise level (5+ sensor monitoring) IDS management tools like the Unix Intrusion Detection Director and the Cisco Secure Policy Manager (sold as part of VMS bundle).

A separate software support contract needs to be purchased for the enterprise level IDS management software products.

See the following links for the enterprise level IDS management tools:
