No you can enable either of the versions but not both

Why is it a requirement to support both versions? If your devices support SSHv2, i would recommend configuring v2 while the non supporting ones can be left at v1

since this is regarding ssh, i have this cisco 2801 that i wanted to enable ssh. however i cannot enter commands such as "cry key generate rsa" and "ip ssh ..". Don't know y? they are unrecognized commands!

IOS 12.4(20)T1.

any hints y?

It appears that you don't have a crypto version IOS. You will need to download a crypto IOS, and upgrade the IOS.

I was about to answer my issue since i just found out in the release notes...but you're too fast. So i'll rate you for that.

Since Mark did correctly analyze your problem and suggest the correct solution, I am surprised that you rated his as a 2. I think that he deserves better and I will give him better.
