Hi All,

I've got myself into a bit of a problem, I've purchased a Cisco 867VAE (I'm already using these around the company) and unfortunately it came with image c860vae-ipbasek9-mz.152-4.M1.bin

This image doesnt support VPN isakmp I need the advanced security ios.

I downloaded c860vae-advsecurityk9-mz.154-3.M4.bin and flashed it to the FLASH booted up and now I get:

System Bootstrap, Version 15.1(4r)M2, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

C860VAE ipbase platform with 256 MB of main memory


Booting flash:c860vae-advsecurityk9-mz.154-3.M4.bin
boot: Launch entrypt: 0x80800000
Self decompressing the image : ################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################ [OK]

Wrong IOS image on IPBASE Router

I can goto ROMmon and boot back into the old image but how do properly upgrade this router to the new firmware I downloaded?

Another idential model router on another site is running:
System image file is "flash:c860vae2-advseck9-mz.SPA.156-3.M3a.bin"

This is why I downloaded the image I did to try and re-flash from the standard ipbase ios

Many thanks,
Shaun
