Configuring ASA 5520 to work with SSM-20 IPS module

Using this equipment in my home lab for study purposes.

I attempted to follow instructions I have found to send the asa traffic to the ips module for inspection.  I command is missing for me.

Commands I input on the asa:

 

access-list IPS extended permit ip any any

class-map IPS

       match access-list IPS

policy-map global_policy

     class IPS
            ips inline fail-open   

 

The last line under "class IPS"  I see the "ips" comand but "inline" is not available.

These are the only options I have after "ips"

df-bit Set IPsec DF policy
fragmentation Set IPsec fragmentation policy
ikev1 Set IKEv1 settings
ikev2 Set IKEv2 settings
security-association Set security association parameters

Re: Configuring ASA 5520 to work with SSM-20 IPS module

I don't think the old style IPS is included on any of the current certification blueprints. It is past end-of-life.

 

You shouldn't spend too much time studying it.

 

That said, the commands you cited should be available. Here is the output from one of my ASAs:

 

asa-5512(config-pmap)# class-map IPS
asa-5512(config-cmap)# match any
asa-5512(config-cmap)# policy-map global_policy
asa-5512(config-pmap)#      class IPS          
asa-5512(config-pmap-c)# ?

MPF policy-map class configuration commands:
  cluster          Specify actions related to clustering

Re: Configuring ASA 5520 to work with SSM-20 IPS module

You should see inline and promiscuous options under mpf-policy-map-class mode commands/options when you put an question mark after IPS.

Re: Configuring ASA 5520 to work with SSM-20 IPS module

Well I just tried again and I do see it. I see they section it off and maybe I didn't see it before. I initially tried typing it in and it didn't work but maybe I typed it in wrong. I understand it is an older product but I would like to know more about it beside certification.

Thanks though for the help.
