A little customer has a Cisco 1841 router running ios 12.3(8r)T8.
At the end of this mail is a "show version" from the router.
Now, he wants to run BGP.
His current ios version 12.3(8r)T8 does not support BGP.
According to Cisco feature navigator, ios version 12.4(24)T
(c1841-ipbasek9-mz.124-24.T.bin) can run in the 1841 and supports BGP
(note that feature set is IPBASE):
12.4(24)T requires 128MB DRAM and 32MB flash
Remote peers will announce ONLY the default route to the 1841
My questions are:
1) It is common that a version with an IPBASE feature set supports BGP
(some docs says that bgp support is included in "SP" services feature
2) Will ios version 12.4(24)T run OK in the 1841?
I think the response will be YES because Cisco feature navigator says
that it is supported and the router has the DRAM and FLASH needed by
3) Must the customer pay in order to download 12.4(24)T or he can
download if he has a valid Cisco maintenance contract for that router?
