SSH on C4510

Hi Experts,

on a CISCO C4510 switch I like to create SSH login , but this is not working.
When I try to type the crypto command, its not there.

Can you help me out please ?
Is it possible to create SSH access on a C4510 switch ?

There are some IOS versions without crypto support. To be eble to use SSH you will need IOS with K9.

IOS with K9 present has crypto support- cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.06.07.E.152-2.E7.bin
IOS without K9 does not have crypto support - cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.06.07.E.152-2.E7.bin

Which version is currently running on device?

Is this the software version -> 03.07.00.E
I typically use
sh ver | i IOS

I will try to find some 4510RE in production to verify it on that specific device.

You can see version names with and without crypto option - Download Software
I guess image present on your device is
to be able to configure ssh should be

Current IOS version name can be checked with:
sh bootflash: | i 4500
sh run | i boot_system

sh run | i boot_system
boot system flash bootflash:cat4500es8-universal.SPA.03.07.00.E.152-3.E.bin
That's it. That version does not support crypto. You need K9 version.
