Dear Experts

We have the following commands on our PIX 506e FW

logging on
logging timestamp
logging trap informational
logging host inside 192.168.1.7
<snip>
ip audit info action alarm
ip audit attack action alarm

In order to check for Intrusion Detection, can anyone tell me what I should be looking for on the Kiwi Syslog server?

Thx

PIX 506E do not have IDS inbuilt into it. Can't do! Only higher end models.

On the other hand if you want to look at normal firewall actions, this will help you get acquainted with PIX messages;

That's weird....there is an IDS section on the PDM! It's set to log events.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yeah, it is a Java Client and common for all, but this Model doesn't have it. If you go for Integrated devices (ASA 5xxx series), only those have IDS functionality.

Right now, Cisco has only 3 platforms for IDS/IPS;

1. IOS IPS -> On a router

2. Firewall IPS -> On ASA Series

3. IDS Appliance -> 4200 series appliances.
