That is a correct crypto version to support the ssh function . It must be a config problem . Make sure you have allowed ssh on the vty lines.

basic steps are

ip domain name

crypto key generate rsa

key size 1024

line vty 0 15

transport input SSH

Its giving me to install Ip domain name, but not giving me to install the Crypto in configuration mode & also in line vty.

I have tried using .E10b.bin & E4a.bin

in E12.bin which i mentioned earlier, when try to boot, it gives me Permission Denied & boot from E10b.bin file.

This is the crypto version , if this is what you have on your boxes it should work . The filename has to be exact . I have this same version working with SSH on 2940's .

Crypto version (SSH)


non crypto version (no SSH)
