Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but.. I am looking to buy

some Cisco switches and routers on ebay.  How is the software license transferred?  Can the unit be sold without the software?  Thanks!

Generally speaking you get the software that comes with the device. If you then need to upgrade the software it's a license cost i'm afraid. So you want a relatively new version of IOS on the switch.


To be honest it's a whole grey area really. Because the person who sells the kit may well have upgraded it without paying for the upgrade.
