IOS version with SSH for c2600

I'm guessing that the 2600 is no longer supported as the closest thing to it on the cisco web site is the 2610. Will the 2610 software run on a 2600. I need to get ssh running on it if possible. Thanks

There was no such thing as "2600". There are 2610, 2621, etc and then the XM evolution. All run the same software and all are too slow for most purposes of today networking. In addiotion, the non XM are also limited in software because small and non-expandable memory.

As noted above and in the end of life announcement: the 2600 series is end-of-life - as of 1997! I don't believe SSH was introduced into software images until around 12.0 (IOS) and 6.1 (CatOS). A switch of that vintage would be CatOS only - probably circa 4.x if I recall correctly.

See the reference guide at for details.

Generally, for current products, see the IOS packaging document here:

As noted in that document, Layer 2 Base images (the most basic package) support SSHV2.

To download software, start from here:

You must be a registered user with a valid support contract to download software (i.e., it's not free).
