Cisco 2611 ruter IOS for CCIE lab

Hi, I have two 2611 routers with 8MB flash and 32 MB RAM. Is there any chance to run some kind of IOS that can support BGP and IPv6 routing? Labs I'm using for practice use 12.2(15)T17 version of software.

I don't think a 2611 support BGP.
2620XM-2621XM would be the first of the 2600 series.

Use Cisco's Feature Navigator to confirm this.

disregard my last post. I found some with BGP, just not with IPV6 yet.

c2600-d-mz.122-46a.bin
c2600-c-mz.122-46a.bin


Those support BGP with 32/8 but I can't find any that support IPv6

If you upgrade to 64/16 you can use the following:
ENTERPRISE BASIC         c2600-j1s3-mz.123-26.bin         

which supports BGP and IPv6

Yes, I found those, but I don't think that there is some IOS for such week router with IPv6 support.

jjmartineziiiCommented:
yeah, i don't see it being possible to use IPv6 with a 32/8 2611 router. Your only option, unless someone finds one, is to upgrade it.

Hi,

I am using GNS3 to simulate an 2611 router. I am using also ios image c2600-is-mz.123-22 and I am able to configure BGP and also IPv6.
This image could be a little old, but for your purpose should be ok.
You may give it a try ;)
Good luck!

No chance. Requirements are min 32 MB flash, I have only 8 MB.

jjmartineziiiCommented:
yup, like ionut said, depending on what you are trying to do, you could use GNS3 to load the IOS virtually on your computer. This will emulate the 2600 router.

yes, i know that. but I have whole lab with 6x 2800 routers, one 1841 and one 2621 that are just fine. Only those two 2611 are no good. So, you know why I don't want to use dynampis.

nevermind. i planned to use that 2611 router as BB3 router. after examing configuration for that border router in my lab, I notice that it doesn't really need to have serial connection with BB1 router. I will use fast ethernet and 871 router instead. What do you think? Is 871 enough?

jjmartineziiiCommented:
If its only for lab purposes, yes.

barkaHRAuthor Commented:
yes. The purpose is that BB1 and BB3 establish BGP session and exchange some routes :)
the rest of FR and serial links is solved with 2800 routers.
thanks.
