The Settings module > Security Settings > IDS Settings page allows you to configure IDS settings and IDS updates. See Figure 140.

To obtain IDS updates, you must purchase and install an IDS license.

The first time that you set up IDS, you must install the IDS signatures. You use the IDS Updates pane for this purpose. First click Check for Updates. After the system searches for the signatures and reports that there are updates, click Install.

After the initial signature installation, you can use the Automatic Updates feature or you can manually insert signatures. See Figure 141.
