Cisco 3560G image that supports crypto?

We have around 20-25 3560G's (WS-C3560G-24TS-S V03) that currently do not support crypto. I'm looking for a way to get a more current image that does. Do I need to purchase one or does cisco offer older images that have this feature for free?

The lastest IOS: c3560-ipbasek9-tar.150-2.SE5.tar or c3560-ipservicesk9-tar.150-2.SE5.tar should have crypto capability.

The IP Base image is free, the IP Services image requires a support contract.

Yeah, ok.

The "K9" in the image name means crypto so you are missing it.

Since you have the IP Base image, the upgrade is free.

Just go to that link I posted and login using your free Cisco account and you can download the IP Base image.

I'll grab the IP base image. Thanks for the help!

"The "K9" in the image name means crypto so you are missing it."

You don't have K9 in your current image, that's why you are missing crypto.

The image I linked to will have crypto.

Obtaining a "more current" image normally requires a service contract (or a new license) for it.  (I recall the original 3560/3750 has a lifetime (free upgrade) software license, but I also recall Cisco may have changed that.)


Believe usual licensing allows for using cyrpto for same (or earlier) version and same feature set (look for k9 in image name).  Obtaining it, however, usually requires active service contract to download software although I believe you can contact Cisco for special download authorization.
