    CISCO 2600 IOS

    I've just graduated my CCNA1 and am starting CCNA2 this week.

    A mate bought a joblot of Cisco equipment and ended up with 4 Cisco 2600's so I bought two of them off him for £90. (Bargain, I thought!). I also got a 15m DCE/DTE serial cable and one of the routers has a serial interface in it


    Aaaannnyway enough side tracking. Does anyone know how I can download the latest IOS for them? One is running V12 and the other V11.3 (i think).

    I've looked on the CISCO site and tried to download one but my CCO registration doesnt allow me IOS downloads.


    Any ideas gratefully recieved.

    Joe

    You must have a current support contract with Cicso to be able to login to their site and download IOS images.

    Hi,

    You need to have a contract like smartNet from cisco or one of their reseller in order to download the IOS. Cisco do make some older IOS available to all users but the newer ones i.e. 2600, 2800 series router's IOS may require a login (not the CCO login but the smartNet contract login).

    From what i can tell, if your school has any cisco equipment, just get a smartnet contract on one of the lower end switch i.e. 2950 which will not cost that much and then they will give you the login to download software and from what i've been told you can download IOS of products outside your smartnet contract i.e. if you bought a contract for 2950 you can download the IOS for routers etc. Can't verify this though., but don't tell cisco this of course!!

    Another program you may want to look at is IOS hunter. Its not free but it will allow you to download and search IOS images prior to 2002, you obviously have to pay if you want to download the latest.


    HTH,

    Ash.

    Even the base IP ios that comes with a cisco router is technically a non transferable license. The ipfw feature set for a 2600 is around £800, plus to get the latest version you still need a smartnet contract.

    As I thought

    Ahhh well, it's just for playing around with. I'm not intending on using them in a production environment appart from maybe personal use so the old IOSs will do I'm sure.


    Thanks for the help guys.
