What is the difference between "from Client" and "from Server" in the IPS policies or where I can define it?

There is not really a difference on the NG because we currently don't monitor the directions. Performancewise both directions are scanned so it doesn't make sense to disable on direction.

Generally the direction mean the direction of the attack. In case my Computer connects to a Webserver and try to exploid it. The attack comes "From Client".
In Case I open a Webpage and maybe the infected Webserver is trying to send some malicous stuff, then the attack comes "From Server".
