How to create rules based on Ips_sid

Hi Guys & Girls,


I have som internet traffic I know I need, but it is blocked by IPS !!

Does anyone know how to create an firewall rule based on IPS_SID or

how to find this IPS_SID and allow it ??:



Attackzone       internal

Category           signature_ips

Cmd                   httpp

Date                   2012-11-15

Dest Geo           FI

Dest Port          80

Dest Zone         external


Event                 Signature IPS drop

Facility               http_proxy


Information     Content matched an IPS signature.

Ips_classtype   IPS:DOS

Ips_sid               20056116

Ips_sig_category                        HTTP-General

Ips_signame     Host.Old-HTTP.Suspicious

Netsessid          d328150a4e348

Protocol            tcp

Reason              Traffic matched an IPS signature and the corresponding network session was dropped.

Rule Name       Internet Services

Source Port      62765

It work off course when disabling IPS on the rule but I still want to use the IPS on rules !!
