New Member

Hi Sirs,

I have downloaded splunk cisco ips add-on and installed it , after restarting my splunk server , this sentence

[script://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_CiscoIPS/bin/ "user" "pass" "ips-ip"]

disabled = 0
index = main
interval = 1
source = SDEE
sourcetype = cisco_ips_syslog

was added to "C:\Program Files\Splunk\etc\apps\Splunk_CiscoIPS\local\inputs.conf"

I used index="_internal" sourcetype="sdee_connection" for troubleshooting , but it doesnot any output ,

Perhaps it needs the userid, password, and the ip address of the IPS to the script?

Installation Instructions

The Cisco IPS add-on can be downloaded, installed, and a connection made to your Cisco IPS sensor(s) by either using the Splunk app setup screen or by manually installing and configuring the add-on. Instructions for both methods are described.

+++ Automated setup using the add-on setup +++

The automated setup is designed to walk you through the configuration of the Cisco IPS add-on once the add-on is installed on your Splunk deployment. The setup screen can be accessed in one of the following ways:

  1. Click the "Setup" button on the add-on from within the Splunk Home page.
  2. Click the Welcome > Add data > Cisco device logs
  3. Click Manager > Apps > Cisco IPS > "Set up"

The setup of the app will require the IP Address or hostname of the sensor you wish to configure and the username/password that will be used to connect to the sensor and pull the data. You also have an option to specify a local file source input for the data. Once the desired configuration options are selected, click the "Save" button. The setup program will create and/or update the inputs.conf file to include the desired input configuration.

+++ Manual setup and configuration +++

  1. Open the inputs.conf file located at $SPLUNKHOME/etc/apps/SplunkCiscoIPS/local/inputs.conf
  2. Modify the inputs.conf file to include the following stanza for each IPS sensor that needs to be configured

[script://$SPLUNKHOME/etc/apps/SplunkCiscoIPS/bin/ ]
sourcetype = ciscoipssyslog
source = SDEE
disabled = false
interval = 1

  1. Save the changes made to the inputs.conf file.

Splunk requires a restart before the scripted input will take effect.

This add-on has been renamed from previous versions (namely "addon" has been removed). Optionally you may choose to manually remove the "ciscoips_addon" add-on from the file system. If any changes exist in local they will need to be manually migrated over to this add-on.
