How do you test a IOS IPS setup on a routers external interface inwards is working. I have set it to notify via syslog (ip ips notify log) and i know the syslog is working as an ACL is also set to log to syslog and this is showing results on the syslog server. I have tried sending (what i'm told is a ping of death) to the routers external interface (ping -l 65500 ipaddress) but this shows on the syslog server as being denied by the ACL but dosen't trigger a signature in the IPS. Is there a way of testing it from a windows platform?
