Cisco 1605


I've just inherited the management of a cisco 1605 & i need a bit of help. I was wondering how i can view the free space on it because i think the config might be to big. I was also wondering how to do IP groups. I know how to do it on a PIX but this seems different.

Do a "show start". Near the top will be a line that says something like "1250 bytes used". This tells you how much NVRAM you are using.

Then do a "show version". Near the bottom will be a line that says something like "16364 bytes of Non-volitile memory." This tells you how much total NVRAM is installed. The difference is how much is available.

Thanks for the response,

show start
        Using 2563 out of 7506 bytes, uncompressed size = 11380 bytes

show version
cisco 1605 (68360) processor (revision C) with 7680K/512K bytes of memory.
Processor board ID 12850384, with hardware revision 00000000 Bridging software.
2 Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 interface(s)
System/IO memory with parity disabled
8192K bytes of DRAM onboard
System running from RAM
8K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
2048K bytes of processor board PCMCIA flash (Read/Write)

So i take it i have room left if i'm using 2563 out of 7506

I had forgotten that "show start" displays total NVRAM also.

Yes, you have room left. About 5K.

Last thing... I think i could shrink my configuration considerably by using groups. Can i do it using Version 11.2


access-list 103 permit ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX host IP1
access-list 103 permit ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX host IP2
access-list 103 permit ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX host IP3
access-list 103 permit ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX host IP4

It's always the same but for different XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX and it's always the same IP1 to 4.

How would i go about grouping them?

I think you need to start another question for that...
