You will need to get the IOS from cisco. You will need a SmartNet contract or CCO account to download software from cisco though

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

So you know sharing an IOS is illegal right? THat is why you are required an account with Cisco to download it.

dano,

Im totally hooking you up.

you'll need a rollover cable (light blue one, if you've seen it before) but just to setup your tftp/ftp session to actually transfer the IOS.

dano992 downloading cisco IOS's from torrents or file sharing sites is illegal. It breaks cisco's piracy policy just the same when you illegally download Windows.

If you can show that you purchased the IOS with the router then you are good. Just make sure you can prove it with paper.

Sullicanr6 obtaining an IOS without purchasing it through Cisco is illegal. Being a CCNA and having experience in this field you should know that. No, simply providing links is not violating your Cisco TOS but EE forbids experts from providing illegal means to obtaining software. Downloading an IOS from a torrent or rapid share is no were close to legal.

I don't disagree, I shouldn't have posted the links. Dan isn't going to run a checksum anyway so maybe he's downloaded a "blackhat" version of the IOS. I actually sort of hope that's the case :)

Is that typically for people not to reward points even though their question was answered successfully? I really havent used this forum before, but started this week out of bordness at work :)

...Ill be on my toes now guy, my bad.

Dude the post has been open for only an hour and a half. usually someone will not award points until the suggested solution is implemented correctly. Plus he could be waiting around for other input.

"I actually sort of hope that's the case :) "

You know most people posting questions pay for a subscription. If you are not her to help them in a professional manner then you need to find another forum. That is what sets us at EE apart from other forums.

Dan run a checksum on your IOS to make sure it hasn't been altered.

like i said before im going to use the the good router with the IOS so no need for software
besides after checking the 2600 out its not in great shape and its ready for permanent retirement
(its officially a paper weight)
but ill grant sullivan the points
thanks guys
one more question for you guys, im thinking of taking a cisco refresher course
i took the CCNA a couple of years back but i dont work with cisco on a daily basis
any advice on what course i should take

sullivanr6Commented:
many thanx. Im pretty sure if your CCNA is older than 3 years, you'll have to re-take the exam again. If it's still valid you can take any "professional" level exam and that will renew your CCNA.

If you've already passed a CCNA, you could probley get by with just studin' some exam notes from pass4sure or testking.

A good book for both getting your CCNA and refreshing your cisco knowledge

Also the Cisco press CCNA study guides are great.
