ios version on a cat 4503

mensmens Member Posts: 69 ■■■□□□□□□□

I managed to get a 4503 for dirt cheap the other day (like 800 bucks), and would like to pimp up the IOS before I sell it to someone else for double or triple the price, atleast. And my gf doesn't like the noise, so I gotta get rid of it :p


Will this one do the trick?

Thanks for any input, I appreciate it :)

    doubt you'll get much for that. I picked up a 6509 for <$1500 :D

    you intend to get across, then it is not focused
    well enough.

    With 50 gigabit ports? The line card only goes for 2.5k on ebay afaik.

    Anyway, would that ios I mentioned work? Wouldn't wanna brick it being the noob that I am.

    Feature Navigator doesn't list enterprise services as a valid IOS feature set for a Catalyst 4500 with a Sup II Plus.

    Latest/greatest for a Sup II Plus is 12.2.53.SG1 IP Base + Crypto. So no, don't load that IOS on it. I doubt you'd brick it but you might end up having to do a painfully slow XMODEM transfer.

    ah thanks tiersten. I totally forgot about the feature navigator, silly me.

    yeah, the chassis are relatively cheap, all things considered. The line cards and the supervisor engines are where the cost is. You can pickup a 6509-E chassis for a fraction of the cost that a Sup720-3B(X|C)L with dCef linecards will cost.
