    Question Firewall intercept traffic befor IPS?

    Hi All,
    I have set a rule to block clients and servers from a particular country in Firewall. I am getting intrusion attempts (blocked) from IP addresses from that country. I assumed that if I block this country in the firewall app, the intrusion attempts would not be seen by the IPS. Is this true or is my understanding incorrect?

    No, Intrusion Prevention sees traffic even that is subsequently blocked.
    In NAT scenarios the majority of traffic that it logs will just be dropped unless you have a port forward.
