I've got some questions about used routers. If I buy a used 1841-SEC/K9 with version 12.4(8), what would be the proper (and least expensive) way to obtain the latest software, the vpn clients, and/or a Smartnet service contract.
The title of your question introduces the concept of re-license. However it is my understanding that Cisco does not re-license. Cisco sells the license to the original purchaser and the license is not transferable. If you purchase used routers you are leagally required to purchase new licensing for them as part of purchasing a smartnet contract. The purchase of smartnet will allow you to upgrade versions on the router.
This question involves issues that I do not have direct experience with, so my answers are not authoritative - perhaps someone who does deal with these can jump in. But I believe that you would need to purchase both a software license and also the SmartNet contract. Depending on where you are located I would assume that you could find a Cisco partner who would be able to assist you with software purchase and SmartNet.
