Hi

you need an image with K9 in it this has no ability to do ssh ----cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.06.04.E.152-2.E4.bin"

You want something like cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.06.04.E.152-2.E4.tar 

without K9 no crypto no ssh etc

EDIT ....cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.06.04.E.152-2.E4.bin

Thanks Mark. I wasnt aware of this while upgrading the image. I did confirm with Cisco TAC about the most stable version to upgrade to but I guess I should have specificaly asked a SSH supported version.

Shouldn't all images support SSH by default?

in short I suppose some countries are not allowed have the K9 as its U.S encryption there is a list of them , like North Korea and other nice countries :) , I presume that's why they still offer them on their website K9 free maybe there's another reason , I know back in the day not all kit supported K9 but surely I would think now everything can

The average daily Cisco user company would all be using some form of K9 for ssh or IPsec

Hi Mark.

I'm also experiencing the same issue.

S-01(config-line)#transport input ?
all All protocols
none No protocols
telnet TCP/IP Telnet protocol

 

Here's my System Image file "flash:c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE3/c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE3.bin"

is there any other solution for this aside from upgrading to k9 image file?

 

Thank you!
