    Currently i have a 4240 (5.0.x)appliance installed, but in IDS mode, not
    IPS. If i want to change it to inline/IPS mode, how are the cables
    physically connected?
    From one interface to the router, and the other to the firewall? directly
    connected? x-over cable?
    Aside from the cabling, is everything else (software wise) configured the
    same way?


    TIA

    Should sit inline between your internet connection and firewall. One thing
    to note is and I fell into the trap, when you put it into IPS mode you end
    up losing one of the interfaces for management so you need at least 3
    interfaces.

    Cheers
