Thanks for your help. I have been doing a lot of reading, and E-bay viewing etc. I think a 2950 should be in my price range second hand.
Can someone tell me if it is possible to buy one second hand with standard image, then upgrade it to enhanced image. I read some documents explaining that. I just want to make sure I don't need any license or anything. I also noticed that only certain hardware will run the features of the enhanced image.
I also checked out some on ebay where the people don't have the passwords etc as they just rip them out of sites. I see the procedure to recover doesn't look that hard. Is anything that can go wrong if I don't know the passwords when recovering the switch?
All software on Cisco kit is licensed. If you upgrade feature sets, you should buy the upgraded software. Strictly if you buy used equipment, you need to re-license the software to be allowed to use it, as the software is licensed to the original buyer.
As an individual, the bigger challenge will be getting hold of the images.
Ignore big stuff like the 5500. 2924s etc are very old, and seem to have fragile power supplies.
Password recovery - as long as you follow the steps, it is easy. A lot easier to follow with the switch in front of you rather than just reading the instructions.
I just noticed that I have the ability on the web page to download the IOS software with my CCO log in. However there is all this disclaimer stuff, saying they can charge you later if you download something your not entitled to etc etc.
I just want to buy a second hand switch and do some study, I don't plan to use this in a live environment. I don't want to get whacked with a cisco bill for no reason.
If you have the ability to download, you work for someone with a servce contract.
As a private individual, I doubt Cisco would bother to chase you for the relicensing fee for a single switch, but should Cisco notice your employers (via your account) downloading software that you are not entitled to, you *may* find your employer being audited...
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
