What is IT...

"It works as dns server, mail server, web server and db server."

Is it the Server or the Intrusion Protection System? Just wondering if it is the server it looks like one you have in your DMZ to do these services, why do you have your Database on it?

As for an IPS there are 100s of them out there. The most common one is SNORT.

I believe the first sentence is the request and the second sentence is a description of server services behind the firewall.

We use Sonicwall firewall routers for this. Might want to check them out especially their subscription features.

Thanks.
As wanderer said, the first line was the request and second was the services run on the server.
Actually I need an advanced firewall 'software'?
I checked snort. it's somehow complicated. I need something simple.

Highly recommend you do not run firewall SPI on your server. It is cpu intensive and the protection should be provided before traffic ever gets to the server.
