I have a number of base c2950-24 Catalyst switches which originally had the Standard Image (SI) feature sets installed -- c2950-i6q4l2. From what I see in the Upgrade Guide, SSH support is only available in models supporting Enhanced Images:
I'm confused by what IOS images I find available as I see:
C2950 EI & SI Crypto
C2950 EI & SI Crypto & Web-based Device Manager
C2950 EI & SI
C2950 EI & SI & Web-based Device Manager
I understand that the "Web-based Device Manager" tar file has updated HTML files included with the binary IOS image, but if SSH support is only available with 2950's only supporting enhanced images (EI), why does the first update listed above state EI & *SI* Crypto?
Am I correct in stating that the my base model 2950's can only use the c2950-i64l2 images?
What would happen if I install a c2950-i6k212q4-mz (EI) image on a base model?
I'm confused by Cisco's packaging...
Thanks for any insight which clarifies Cisco's intention.
