This is documented in the Readme for the latest signature update:

http://ftp.cisco.com/cisco/crypto/3DES/ciscosecure/ids/3.x/appliance/IDS-sig-3.1-4-S51.readme.txt

Version 3.0(1)S4 to 3.1(1)S22 sensors must first be upgraded with both

the 3.1(2)S23 service pack, and the 3.1(4)S50 service pack before

applying the 3.1(4)S51 signature update.

Install the following binaries:

IDSk9-sp-3.1-2-S23.bin

IDSk9-sp-3.1-4-S50.bin

So once you've installed the 2 files above then you can install the IDS-sig-3.1-4-S51.bin update.

All of the updates and associated readme files can be downloaded from:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/ids3-app

Version 4.0 no longer requires unix experience.

(Unlike the older version 3.1)

Version 4.0 sensors have a CLI that is similar to the Router CLI.

The CLI commands used to upgrade the sensor are documented in the installation steps in the readme for each update file.

So you just need to follow the instructions in the readme and no knowledge of any additional unix commands are needed.

NOTE: You need to download the file to your own ftp,scp, or http server in step 1. This server is one of your own boxes and could be Windows or Unix. So the only Unix commmands you might ever need is if you decided to use a Unix box as the ftp,scp, or http server you use in Step 1.

In the readme file it is mentioning about changing directory . It is not mentioning how to copy the software from tftp to ids ? You have any update about this ?

I think I confused you on my previous reply.

I stated that version 4.x no longer requires that the user have unix knowledge to do the upgrades.

What I did not do is read back through the original post and replies where you mention that you are upgrading to version 3.1.

Version 3.1 DOES require some basic Unix knowledge.

Here are the step by step instructions to follow to upgrade your sensor:

1) Download the file from CCO to your personal desktop machine.

If your personal desktop machine is windows then I recommend putting the file in your C:\ directory.

2) Ftp the file from your desktop machine to the /tmp directory on the sensor.

If your personal desktop machine is windows then do the following:

C:

cd C:\

ftp &ltsensorip>

login as user root with root's password

cd /tmp

bin

put &ltupdatefile>

exit

3) Telnet or ssh to the sensor and login as user root.

4) Change directories to the /tmp directory

cd /tmp

5) Change the permissions on the file:

chmod +x &ltupdatefile>

6) Execute the update:

&ltupdatefile> -I
