IOS IPS auto-update

Hi,

I have a couple of questions I hope people could answer:

1) What recommendations/options are available for downloading signature files to a HTTP/TFTP server prior to having the IOS IPS device pull them from the server?  Is their a way to automate the HTTP/TFTP server downloading the signatures? (Cron job or such)

2) Does the signature file name change each time a new signature file is released? If it does, would I have to go back to the router to update the URL string that is configured in the ip ips auto-update section? I would hate to have to update 200 CPE devices each time a new signature file is released.

Hoping someone could answer these or help point me in the right direction to find the answer out.

regards M
