I have this old cisco 1600 router that we used for some demos.
I was wondering if it can be used as a DHCP server,
in that the 1600 is listed on the Cisco site as supporting that
function,
but I don't see it in the config IP commands list -
BTW - anything else I should be concerned about in this firmware version
as it is just used for some basic demo stuff -

I believe IOS started suppoting this feature with 12.0 thus an IOS
upgrade will be required.

Checkout www.cisco.com/go/fn and look for images that support the dhcp
server feature.

Am I correct in viewing this box as having :
4meg RAM and a 6meg flash card,
which might prove difficult to try and load a 12.x image
from another flash card for our 1600 ?
---------

Router uptime is 0 minutes
System restarted by power-on
System image file is "flash:c1600-sy-l.113-5", booted via flash

cisco 1601 (68360) processor (revision C) with 3584K/512K bytes of
memory.
Processor board ID 10700673, with hardware revision 00000000
System/IO memory with parity disabled
8K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
6144K bytes of processor board PCMCIA flash (Read ONLY)

Configuration register is 0x2102

Yeh that's nowhere near enough. You need 24Mb RAM and 8Mb flash

tnx - just looked -
and it appears that I would need 12.3 for the DHCP server function
and then of course 6meg and a 12meg flash card for the non-R 1601
c1600-y-l.12.3-12a (6/12)

Feature Navigator says:-
DHCP server is in 12.1(5)

IP c1600-y-l.12.1-5 4Ram 8Flash

You MAY be able to boot from a BOOTP server if you don't have the
flash.

Maybe the feature navigator does not understand 12.0?

12.0( release notes say:

Easy IP Phase 2-DHCP Server
is in all feature sets in the "IBM Support " section.
Who knows what that is though.

Good luck.
