I'm looking for some resources on what the different types of IOS versions are. Specifically, I've got a catalyst 3560 switch that came with the following:
(C3560-IPBASE-M), Version 12.2(35)SE5
This version of the IOS (ipbase) does not allow for encryption and therefore I can't enable SSH.
Which out of the other available versions would allow this?
Is there somewhere that explains the features of each version?
Are licenses required for different versions?
Could installing another version introduce potentially unwanted side effects such as features that need to be configured or else they leave security gaps, incompatibilities with current configuration, etc?
Here is a list of other versions available for this switch in 12.2(35):
IP SERVICES W/O CRYPTO WITH WEB BASED DEV MGR
IP BASE WITH WEB BASED DEV MGR
ADVANCED IP SERVICES
IP SERVICES WITH WEB BASED DEV MGR
IP SERVICES W/O CRYPTO
IP BASE W/O CRYPTO WITH WEB BASED DEV MGR
IP BASE W/O CRYPTO
ADVANCED IP SERVICES WITH WEB BASED DEV MGR
Thanks for the help!
