I've used "c2600-j1s3-mz.122-15.T12.bin" on a Cisco 2611 with 64M DRAM.

Please use Cisco Feature Navigator to find the appropriate IOS image to support the features you require on the platform you require.

Generally yes you can, please do check the feature navigator for the proper IOS:


P.S you might need to upgrade your DRAM/Flash, and i've even got once into a scenario where i booted my router over tftp to get the IOS.

Thanks Mohammed. My routers have 132MB RAM and 32Mb flash, i guess that enough.

Hi Mohammed,

Which software feature set are you using?

Ive tried v12.4 enterprise plus and IP plus and advanced security IOS but they did not support MPLS

Hi mohammed! i'm trying to do a lab at my university implementing MPLS. I have routers cisco 2610 series. This is my configuration:

Cisco2600-2(config-if)# ip route-cache cef

Cisco2600-2(config-if)# mpls label protocol ldp

Cisco2600-2(config-if)#mpls ip

My problem is that i can't use te "set mpls experimental topmost " command at the policy-map. My options are:


QoS policy-map class configuration commands:

bandwidth Bandwidth

compression Activate Compression

drop Drop all packets

exit Exit from QoS class action configuration mode

no Negate or set default values of a command

police Police

priority Strict Scheduling Priority for this Class

queue-limit Queue Max Threshold for Tail Drop

random-detect Enable Random Early Detection as drop policy

service-policy Configure QoS Service Policy

shape Traffic Shaping

My version of the IOS is:

IOS (tm) C2600 Software (C2600-TELCO-M), Version 12.3(15b), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

wich version do i need to run this command and configurations?? Any information will help. Thank you very much. Best regards!!
