Hey all,

Is it possible to run the internal ips in multi context mode?

Yes you can. But the flexibility for the IPS-management is not the same as for your firewall-management. In the IPS you only have one central management. So you can not delegate the IPS-management to your customers. The only flexibility is that you can activate virtual sensors on the IPS and assign them to your firewall-contexts.

If you mean the virtual sensors when you talk about "multi sensors", then yes, you can do that:

Re: Cisco Asa 5555 x ips multi context mode

Thanks mate, that should not be a problem as they're all managed by the same customer. Can multi sensors be set up for different contexts?
