Hi, 

 

What is the difference on 

 

XR-NC55-P-06.03

XR-NC55-PK9-06.03

 

I understand that the K9 image is a crypto image. But how does it differ and what benefits does it give to the end user?

 

BR

Hi
its a more secure mage , so SSH between user and router is secure when connecting , unlike telnet where someone on the LAN could see your passwords on a wire as cleartext , its not a benefit to the user but a benefit to network security on your local network , also if it was a router k9 it could support features like DMVPN or IPSEC GRE and IWAN all use encryption, so you could tunnel a users traffic and encrypt it and provide very flexible logical secure paths , always best to have a K9 than not have it , extra security
