I tried to configure IPS on my 877w router.

I cannot see a command ip ips sdf location BUILDIN

I have one of the latest IOS and I assume it does not support old sdf files, but how should I enable the BUILD IN database of IPS signatures???

Well... there is no answer for my question in these documents :-(

In SDF I could have used:

ip ips sdf location buildin

What is the command in the latest IOS? ANyone pls?
