1) for each version (12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 12.3, 12.4), there is a mainline, technical, and security build. Mainline is default.
2) any... you probably want a 12.4 mainline IOS image on it as a starting point.
3) yes. any IOS (dont quote me on this cause i know earlier one's dont), supports IPSEC, PPPoE, PPPoA, GRE, and a whackload of others.
4) n/a
5) (i assume you mean VPN connections), no.
6) http://google.com/ ? any specific information your looking for?


what do you want to setup?

If you go to the bottom of the article you will find that not all supports VPN.

VPN, Policy based routing , Firewall. To name the main ones .

feature support is based on IOS line. if you go to 12.4 (T-track), you'll have almost every feature available. infact, i'm not aware of one that 12.4 T does not offer.

1. Whats the difference between T and the one without it.?

Sorry but  its not clear for me. How do one opt for a T image. And if you say it has all the the feature maps like advanced ip services, enterprise services and advanced enterprise serives by default and that you do not have to buy them seprately, then whats the fun of having these features at all ?

The T train is the new feature identified within each major feature set (Advanced IP Services, SP Services, Advanced Enterprise Services, Advanced Security, etc)

Have a look at the below link for some clarification:
