Hi folks.

Pursuing the CCSP. Have old router and need the IOS with the
firewall feature pack containing the encryption engines (DES, 3DES).

I realize the 'official' answer is to contact my local Cisco partner
and pay several thousand $$$. But, don't wish to do that, nor feel it is
appropriate for the effort. The router and software is strictly for
training.

Any ideas/advice ..?

Hello !

I'm in the same situation as you !

can't get neither put  the last IOS firewall on my 2515 Router (not
enough memory and can't put Firewall IOS on this Router Model..)

The only answer I found is : I bought a PIX 501 at Ebay from 400 $ CAN.
so I can "play" with the IOS Firewall feature !

Good price on the Pix. It is NOT however an IOS firewall feature set, no
where even close. Completely different beast. There are des/fw images for
the 2500 that only require 10m dram, flash is 16, but that doesn't matter as
you can boot it from a tftp server. DRAM is dirt cheap on ebay for it.

example:
            File name Min. Memory
            (MB)  Min. Flash
            (MB)  Date Released
            c2500-ik8os-l.122-12l.bin  10 16 21-APR-2005

I just bought a bunch of cisco equipment this weekend, and I am going to be
looking to upgrade all the IOS's etc.  So, how do I get access to this
stuff?

I think that the only way is to buy a support contract.

Hello,
I tried that but ,I need the tools they offer to choose the rignt image
!

Too many !



Re: CCSP - IOS version for old 2501 router.


all cisco IOS for the 2500 series starts with c2500 so a search on
c2500 should yield the IOS your looking for. Seach within yourself my
young friend and you will find what the letter codes stand for.

Re: CCSP - IOS version for old 2501 router.


Initially, I thought I had asked a fairly straightforward question to
what I'm painfully discovering is a convulated problem. The problem
being where to get IOS software strictly for training, and HOW to
determine what software to get. I mistakently thought there were 4, or 5
  IOS's applicable to my platforms (2501's). There probably are hundreds.

Now, we via the newsgroups we have to decipher this Davinci-code like
stuff to determine whether or not we/I/anyone can download IOS software?
As if this stuff wasn't complex enough, we have to figure out HOW to
just get to the beginning of the learning curve ..???

Not true, I have a CCO Login, and I'm not on a support contract, or a
reseller, or even a business (although Cisco may  think I am), it's not
hard to get the material, just be inventive at registration, it's not
like you're using an IOS upgrade for anything nefarious, since you're
doing Cisco Training anyway.

Google and set up a freeware TFTP Server on any host from Win95 to XP,
or get a free Linux implementation, and your set.
