I have a Juniper Netscreen IDP solution in place. This was set up before I started working at my current job and no one is left that knows anything about it. I know there is a sensor box in place on the network and that there is a management box that can connect to it. My problem starts with the fact that my help desk guy took the manager box and reimaged it for another use. So, I was able to install Red Hat on a VM and followed the directions to install the manager software and was able to connect to the Sensor but after that I'm lost. There is some configuration documentation that previous guy left but not much.
This documentation shows a screen shot of the policy and that's it. I am connected to the Sensor but I;m not seeing any policies available.
So my questions are:
Is the sensor just normally picking up everything and the policy is on the manager only?
If so, then I suppose I just need to recreate a policy on the manager to examine and respond to the traffic the Sensor sees. Nothing really needs to be done on the Sensor......
