What settings do you use for kill/reset packets on Crossbeam when running in IDS/passive mode?
Technote 1436157 - Known Issues for Proventia for Crossbeam
Technote 1436163 - LMI/Web Interface Update Option to Back Up Before Installation
Technote 1436166 - SiteProtector policies are not updated automatically when registered in SP with Proventia Crossbeam IPS
Technote 1436169 - "Set Policy Requested Failed" Popup Appears When Saving User Defined Responses with Unsafe Script Location
Technote 1436173 - LMI Not Accessed When Changing Max-load-count

Technote 1436182 - Netengine Killed When Local Tuning Parameters Applied and tcpdump/tethereal is Running
When Proventia IPS is configured for monitoring mode it must also be configured to use a dedicated kill circuit so reset packets are properly transmitted. This means that the Proventia IPS configuration setting sensor.vnd.killport must be set to killport and sensor.adapter.reset must contain the name of a properly configured [refer to XOS IDS user's guide] kill circuit.
When Proventia IPS is configured in protection or simulation mode, sensor.vnd.killport may be set to thisPort.
Note: This only applies to monitoring mode. Each of the monitored circuits must be configured with promiscuous-mode. This mode causes the circuit to act as a read-only device that is capable of handling traffic in one direction only -- towards the VAP. Reset packets generated by the Proventia IPS will not be transmitted correctly. Proper handling of reset packets requires a dedicated circuit for each IDS VAP Group on a chassis in all cases -- regardless of whether the IDS is used in a serialized application deployment with another product, e.g., a firewall, or is deployed as a stand-alone application.
User's guide text:
Default Value: thisPort
Note: other value is killPort
Description: Specifies the kill port used for TCP resets for the specified VND.
Note: If your application is in passive monitoring mode, set the value to killPort. This value provides a dedicated circuit for reset/kill packets.
