Thanks and the 5505 is on version 8.2 and should I not be able to download the 8.4 software I should be good just copying the text file to the 5512-x and just edit the interfaces while the rest of the rules and information can remain the same. Am I correct on that assumption?
I believe  you can just put 8.4 on to the 8.2 software or download it if you have a cisco login.

all the other rules should be the same.
