How to configure the SSM-10 module on a Cisco ASA 5510 (IPS newbie)

Posted on 2007-08-06
Last Modified: 2013-11-16
My company just bought a Cisco ASA 5510 with the SSM-10 module.  I'm familiar with Cisco PIX and have all the firewall parts of the ASA configured.  But I'm unfamiliar with the SSM-10 module.  I've got the basics configured (IP address, login names, etc.), but was wondering if anyone could point me to some basic theory and configuration info.  I understand WHAT the SSM does, but I'm not clear on how to configure it.  I've got the pdf's from Cisco, but was hoping for something a little more basic to get me started.  Thanks.
