Network Sensor - IN-Line Deployment

Hello!

I read Cisco Secure Network Appliances have just one monitoring interface.

If I want to deploy my sensor in IN-LINE mode, how can I do? I can't, right?

Thanks alot.

Re: Network Sensor - IN-Line Deployment

The Cisco IDS-4200 Sensor Appliance series does not currently support IN-LINE mode.

The only IN-LINE alternatives produced by Cisco are the Pix Firewall with some limited IDS funtionality, and the IOS Firewall Image also with limited IDS functionality.

The Pix and IOS IDS functionality have a limited signature detection capability when compared with the IDS-4200 Sensor Appliances.

Thanks for the useful answer!

Do you know if other Intrusion Detection Systems, such as Enterasys Dragon and NFR NIDS, can be deployed in in-line mode?

I'm doing a research for my company...

Thanks again! ;-)
