ssh for 2611 router

I have tried to configure ssh on 2611 router but there is no 'crypt key generate rsa' command in global configuration mode.

Hear is the result of 'show version' command. Any ideas why? Thanks

Thank you. Do you know where can I get it?

Re: ssh for 2611 router

Yes, you can download this from


Re: ssh for 2611 router

Yes you need a new image for the router. The image name will have a "K9" somewhere in the image name indicating it is a crypto image that will support SSH .
