CCNA Router IOS Features

This page lists:

 

  • Sections by IOS Version
  • Each section lists Features Sets researched at that IOS version
  • Each section lists two tables, one for the ICND1 exam features, and one of the ICND2 exam features
  • Each table lists rows with IOS features important to the exam
  • Each table's columns lists an X when a given feature set supports a given feature 

 

These tables use the Cisco Feature Navigator tool (www.cisco.com/go/fn) as the basis for the information in the table. Note that the information varies from router, so this page shows data collected for a given model plus version plus feature set.  

 

This information is provided as a service to the Cisco certification community. Please help by letting us know about any incorrect information listed in this or related pages. If you find information that is not accurate, please let us know at labdata@certskills.com. Please note that we may not be able to reply to each email individually, but will we strive to keep the data accurate.


 
Why List Some Features, but Not All?


The tables on this page do not list all CCNA features. Instead, it lists CCNA features that can be useful for seeing differences between IOS versions, feature sets, and router models.

  1 Cisco Feature Navigator shows this feature as not supported, but with other similar features supported, it could be that Cisco Feature Navigator is simply incorrect.

  1 I am suspicious whether feature navigator is correct, that a 2610XM with this version and feature set does not have EIGRPv6 support. If you have that combination to test, please let me know, labdata@certskills.com.

  1. At 15.1M, feature set "Advanced Security", on 871 or 877, it seems suspicious that EIGRPv6 is not supported. If you have that combination and can test, please get in touch at labdata@certskills.com.
