There was no such thing as "2600". There are 2610, 2621, etc and then the XM evolution. All run the same software and all are too slow for most purposes of today networking. In addiotion, the non XM are also limited in software because small and non-expandable memory.

As noted above and in the end of life announcement: https://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps593/prod_end-of-life_notice0900aecd8029588f.html) the 2600 series is end-of-life - as of 1997! I don't believe SSH was introduced into software images until around 12.0 (IOS) and 6.1 (CatOS). A switch of that vintage would be CatOS only - probably circa 4.x if I recall correctly.


See the reference guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk583/tk617/technologies_tech_note09186a0080094314.shtml for details.


Generally, for current products, see the IOS packaging document here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/iosswrel/ps8802/ps5460/prod_bulletin0900aecd80281b17.html


As noted in that document, Layer 2 Base images (the most basic package) support SSHV2.


To download software, start from here: http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-center/index.shtml


You must be a registered user with a valid support contract to download software (i.e., it's not free).
