IPS Device Manager (IDM)
IDM is a web-based, Java application that enables you to configure and manage your sensor. The web server for IDM resides on the sensor. To correctly run IDM, your browser must have Java Plug-in 1.4.2 or 1.5 installed. By default the Java Plug-in allocates 64 MB of memory to IDM. IDM can run out of memory while in use, which can cause IDM to freeze or display blank screens. You must change the memory settings of Java Plug-in before using IDM. The mandatory minimum memory size is 256 MB.
After you have installed the sensor on your network, you must use the setup command to initialize it.
With the setup command, you configure basic sensor settings, including the hostname, IP interfaces, Telnet server, web server port, access control lists, time settings, and assign and enable interfaces. After you have initialized the sensor, you can communicate with it over the network. You are then ready to configure intrusion prevention using either the CLI or IDM.
