Hello DJ Stanley,


support of SSH depends on the specific feature set the IOS image is part of


if you post


sh ver | inc image


it will be possible to check if SSH is supported on your current IOS image


Hope to help

Chetan,


The command you're referring to is to enable HTTPS on the router (not SSH).


To enable SSH first look you have a k8 or k9 image.

Please post the output of ''sh ver''

Looks like this doesn't support. Anyway just to disable telnet. I don't really want to have to upgrade

the IOS on the 3 routers since there is always the possibility that it could go south.

Hello DJ,


as Federico has correctly noted in the filename there should some special character to indicate SSH support


in your case the filename is

c3640-is-mz.123-9d.bin



i

: IP subset (SNMP, IP, Bridging, WAN, Remote Node, Terminal Services)


s: (NAT, IBM, MMP, VPDN/L2F) In 11.3T added VOIP


if there was a k8 or k9 or kn with n>=4 SSH support would be present


Hope to help

Giuseppe
