    found an ios who have this command (C2691-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(15)T6, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

    can you explain the difference between those 2 IOS??? the C3745 the version is higher and doesnt have the command why? i thought all the K9 ios are for security.

    The feature set, version number and release train letters are all important.

    The main letters you'll see for these small routers are:

    No letter or M = Mainline = The stable branch of IOS
    T = Technology = The development/new features branch of IOS
    X = Special build = Don't use this unless you're told specifically to use it. Its not supported past that specific version and it may have odd bugs.

    When the first x.0 IOS of a new version is released, they clone it into two branches. The Mainline branch in theory only ever gets bugfixes and you use this if you can since it should be more stable. The Technology branch is where they add all the new features and support for new hardware so it may experience some unusual bugs. Eventually the latest Technology release becomes the first x.0 release of the new major/minor version of IOS.
