What the rule does depends on how the IPS options are configured. If you select to "Automatically Block Network Intruders", you can specify the period of time to block or block the source IP indefinitely.You would also enable "Retain Blocked Hosts" to use the parameters specified in the preceding.If this is not selected, it will block until the next policy refresh. (Same with other NIPS signature triggers)
