How to show services running in IOS and CatOS.

We are turning off certain services for Security reasons on our Switches and Routers. Does anyone know the command or how to find out what services are actually running on a router or switch either running IOS or CatOS ??? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Re: How to show services running in IOS and CatOS.

Router and switches are layer 3 & 2 devices

respectively and do not behave in anyway similar to a PC.

You cannnot see services as you'ld on a pc but you can

see process that have been enabled by router and some enabled due

to your present configurations.

To see process, do a "sh process cpu" and to turn off the

process that are as a result of your config e.g.

NAT you have to disable nat.

cas_3660_TGW#sh processes cpu

I don't think you request is possible on a router or switch.
