Cisco IOS based IPS Services Licensing Query

Hi Experts,

We have a Cisco 3945 router at one of our location. Our requirement is to enable the IOS based IPS engine within in the router and would like to load new signature files from cisco website to the router. But i am not much familiar with the licensing part. show version and show ip ips license output has been attached for the reference. Following are my queries.

1) Is this platform and IOS is capable for enabling IPS Engine?

2) Is there any extra IPS Services Contract is required (other than the smartnet Coverage) for this router to enable IPS engine and to load new IPS Signature files from Cisco?

Advanced Thanks and Regards,

Sihanu N

1) Is this platform and IOS is capable for enabling  IPS Engine?

Yes, it is (3945 with a security IOS image will be able to do it)

2)Is there any extra  IPS Services Contract is required (other than the smartnet Coverage) for this router to enable IPS engine and to load new IPS Signature files from Cisco?

No, you are good to go.

I will write a future articule about how to enable this feature on an IOS router so stay tune in my website at http:laguiadelnetworking.com for further information as I will cover all of the details,
