Cisco IOS Licenses

While reading comp.dcom.sys.cisco, I found a thread discussing licenses for Cisco IOS. This abbreviation of Cisco's software transfer and licensing policy states "owners of Cisco products are only allowed to transfer, re-sell or re-lease used Cisco hardware and not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 embedded software that runs on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hardware." One option for licensed use of Cisco gear at reduced prices is buying refurbished equipment, sold by authorized resellers, and getting a SMARTnet support contract to access parts of Cisco's software center. There seems to be no shortage of Asian sites offering IOS, although I suspect Trojaned versions might appear in those listings. This thread includes a lengthy post by Ted Mittelstaedt explaining how Cisco discourages eBay purchases of Cisco gear.
