Setting the time parameters on IDS sensors

I have problem with setting the NTP parameters on Cisco IDS sensor. Could anyone explain to me what is the meaning of the key and key-id in the sensor configuration and any possible reasons why my sensor does not synchronize with the time server that I have configured.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Setting the time parameters on IDS sensors

Time params should be set to look like this (in fact you should be able to just cut/paste this in):

service Host

timeParams

offset 600

standardTimeZoneName EST

summerTimeParams

active-selection recurringParams

recurringParams

offset 60

summerTimeZoneName EDST

startSummerTime

monthOfYear oct

weekOfMonth last

dayOfWeek sun

timeOfDay 02:00:00

exit

endSummerTime

monthOfYear apr

weekOfMonth last

dayOfWeek sun

timeOfDay 02:00:00

exit

exit

exit

ntpServers ipAddress 192.168.1.10

keyId 1

keyValue cisco123

exit

exit

The key value and number are for NTP authentication, but if your server isn't doing it, like my server above, then just set them to anything and it doesn't make any difference.
