Router/Firewall question...

I have a cisco 1760 router with the IP/FW/IDS/3DES IOS 12.3
I have a T1 connection to the internet which is NAT'd to the internal network.

Can anyone show me an example config using the FW/IDS with logging if possible!

you have a hardware IDS Network Module installed?

refer to the Cisco Intrusion Detection System (IDS) Hardware and Software Version 4.1 Documentation Guide that shipped with your IDS router module. It is at the following URL:
I don't think you have an IDS module in your 1700 router. Most likely the IDS features as part of the FW IOS...

To setup logging, log to a host:
logging trap <level> [1-7]
logging host a.b.c.d  <-- ip address of syslog server

You can get a free syslog server deamon from Kiwi

Make sure you apply your audit rule to whatever interface(s) you want to have the IDS s/w check. I've seen tons of configurations where people create the rules but then don't apply them to interfaces.
