New and Changed Information

This section lists new features introduced for the Cisco 3600 in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)XD and Cisco IOS Release 12.0(1)T. For more information about these features, refer to the cross-platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T   located on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM, and the "Cisco IOS Software Document Set" section.

New Features in Release 12.0(2)XD

The following new features are supported by the Cisco 3600 in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)XD.

ISDN BRI VIC

The ISDN BRI VIC (Voice Interface Card) provides narrowband digital voice connectivity in Cisco's VoIP (and soon, VoFR) environments. It provides a client-side (TE) ISDN S/T physical interface for connection to an NT1 terminating an ISDN telephone network. Each of its two ports can carry two voice calls (one over each ISDN B channel) for a total of four calls per ISDN BRI card.

It is another VIC which supplements the current array of VICs, but is the first digital VIC available.

New Features in Release 12.0(1)T

Cisco IOS IEEE 802.1Q Support

Cisco IOS IEEE 802.1Q provides support for IEEE 802.1Q encapsulation for Virtual LANs (VLANs). Use this feature for VLANs consisting of IEEE 802.1Q compliant switches.

Mobile IP

Mobile IP provides users the freedom to roam beyond their home subnet while consistently maintaining their home IP address. This enables transparent routing of IP datagrams to mobile users during their movement, so that data sessions can be initiated to them while they roam; it also enables sessions to be maintained in spite of physical movement between points of attachment to the Internet or other networks. Cisco's implementation of Mobile IP is fully compliant with the Internet Engineering Task Force's (IETF's) proposed standard defined in Request for Comments (RFC)    2002.

Easy IP Phase 2-DHCP Server

With the introduction of Easy IP Phase 2, Cisco IOS software supports Intelligent DHCP Relay functionality. A DHCP Relay Agent is any host that forwards DHCP packets between clients and servers. A DHCP Relay Agent enables the client and server to reside on separate subnets. If the Cisco IOS DHCP server cannot satisfy a DHCP request from its own database, it can forward the DHCP request to one or more secondary DHCP servers defined by the network administrator using standard Cisco IOS IP helper-address functionality.

Smart-init (Mars FE2P)

The smart-init feature is an extension to the existing memory split program of the Cisco IOS software running on Cisco 3600 series routers. It computes iomem size by looking at the network modules installed in the system and uses this iomem for carrying out the memory split. Also, compatibility with older Cisco IOS configurations is maintained by retaining support for the memory-size configuration command. The user can disable smart-init and set iomem percentage to the required value by entering the memory-size configuration command.

OSPF Packet Pacing

The former OSPF implementation for sending update packets needed to be more efficient. Some update packets were getting lost in cases when a link was slow, a neighbor could not receive the updates fast enough, or the router was out of buffer space. For example, packets might be dropped if either of these topologies existed:

OSPF update packets are now automatically paced by a delay of 33 milliseconds. Pacing is also added between retransmissions to increase efficiency and minimize lost retransmissions.

OSPF update and retransmission packets are sent more efficiently. Also, you can display the LSAs waiting to be sent out an interface.

Time-Based Access Lists

It is now possible to implement access lists based on the time of day. To do so, you create a time range that defines specific times of the day and week. The time range is identified by a name, and then referenced by a function, so that those time restrictions are imposed on the function itself.

Currently, IP and IPX extended access lists are the only functions that can use time ranges. The time range allows the network administrator to define when the permit or deny statements in the access list are in effect. Prior to this feature, access list statements were always in effect once they were applied. Both named or numbered access lists can reference a time range.

RIP Enhancements

Triggered extensions to IP RIP increase efficiency of RIP on point-to-point, serial interfaces.

Routers are used on connection-oriented networks to allow potential connectivity to many remote destinations. Circuits on the WAN are established on demand and are relinquished when the traffic subsides. Depending on the application, the connection between any two sites for user data could be short and relatively infrequent.

Previously, there were two problems using RIP to connect to a WAN:

To overcome these limitations, triggered extensions to RIP cause RIP to send information on the WAN only when there has been an update to the routing database. Periodic update packets are suppressed over the interface on which this feature is enabled.

Cisco IOS Firewall Feature Set Platform Support

The Cisco IOS Firewall feature set is now available on Cisco 2600 and Cisco 3600 series products.

The Cisco IOS Firewall feature set extends the security technology currently available in Cisco IOS software to provide firewall specific capabilities:

The Cisco IOS Firewall feature set adds advanced filtering capabilities to existing security functionality in Cisco routers. Some existing Cisco IOS security features include packet filtering via access control lists (ACLs), Network Address Translation (NAT), network-layer encryption, and TACACS+ authentication.

ISDN MIB RFC2127

The new Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) Management Information Base (MIB) RFC2127 has been designed to provide useful information in accordance with the IETF's new standard for the management of ISDN interfaces. RFC2127 provides information on the physical Basic Rate interfaces, control and statistical information for B (bearer) and D (signaling) channels, terminal endpoints, and directory numbers.

The ISDN MIB RFC2127 controls all aspects of ISDN interfaces. It consists of five groups:

The ISDN MIB RFC2127 enables you to use any commercial SNMP network management application to support ISDN call processing in Cisco IOS software. You can integrate management of dial access products using ISDN with your existing network management systems.

Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP)

Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) is an emerging Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standard that combines the best features of two existing tunneling protocols: Cisco's Layer Two Forwarding (L2F) and Microsoft's Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP). L2TP is an extension to the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), which is an important component for Access Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). Access VPNs allow mobile users to connect to their corporate intranets or extranets, thus improving flexibility and reducing costs.

Previously, traditional dial-up networking services only supported registered IP address, which limited the types of applications that could be implemented over Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). L2TP supports multiple protocols and unregistered and privately administered IP addresses over the Internet. This allows the existing access infastructure, such as the Internet, modems, access servers, and ISDN terminal adaptors (TAs), to be used.

L2TP can be initiated wherever PPTP or L2F is currently deployed and can be operated as a client initiated tunnel, such as PPTP, or a network access server (NAS) initiated tunnel, such as L2F.

PPP Over Frame Relay

The PPP over Frame Relay feature allows a router to establish end-to-end Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) sessions over Frame Relay. IP datagrams are transported over the PPP link using RFC 1973 compliant Frame Relay framing. This feature is useful for remote users running PPP to access their Frame Relay corporate networks.

PPP over Frame Relay provides the following benefits:

CLI String Search

The Command Line Interface (CLI) String Search feature allows you to search or filter any show or more command's output. This is useful when you need to sort though large amounts of output, or if you want to exclude output that you do not need to see. CLI String Search also allows for searching and filtering at paging prompts.

With the search function, you can begin unfiltered output at the first line that contains a regular expression you specify. You can specify a maximum of one filter per command to either include or exclude output lines that contain the specified regular expression.

A regular expression is any word, phrase, number, and so forth that appears in show or more command output.

Cisco IOS STP Enhancements

Cisco IOS Spanning Tree Protocol enhancements broaden the original Cisco IOS STP implementation with increased port identification capability, improved path cost determination, and support for a new VLAN bridge spanning-tree protocol.

Caveats

This section contains the open caveats for the current Cisco IOS maintenance release only. The software caveats are also located in the Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T document that accompanies these release notes.The caveats document is located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.


Note If you have an account with CCO, you can use Bug Navigator II to find caveats of any severity for any release. Bug Navigator II is at http://www.cisco.com/support/bugtools, or from CCO, select Software & Support: Technical Tools: Bug Toolkit II

Open Caveats - Release 12.0(2)XD

This section describes possibly unexpected behavior by Release 12.0(2)XD. Unless otherwise noted, these caveats apply to all 12.0 releases up to and including 12.0(2)XD.

Basic System Services

Configuring the layer3 switching with access filter in and out on the hssi interface with the Frame relay ietf encap, then try to configure the smds encap will cause the router to crash.
When configuring a mc3810 for CCS cross-connect, it's possible that calls will stop getting connected after a period of time.

DECnet

This problem is specific to the RSM platform and for DECnet over VLANs.
The code for DECnet support over VLANs uses a cache to store VLAN-header information, and this cache is used in the fast-switch path.
When there is a routing topology change, the fast-switching code continues to look at the stale cache entry, and as a result, packets destined via the new route end up getting black-holed.
The work-around is to disable DECnet fast-switching on the relevant interface.

IBM Connectivity

Router running DLSw with FST/Direct/LLC2(Lite) encapsulations could crash.
Workaround for this is to use DLSw with TCP encapsulation.

Interfaces and Bridging

FDDI PA will now have a software address filter at VIP level to filter out unwanted multicast packets. This helps performance and also unnecessary entries in netflow tables.
If "no keepalive" (or 0 keepalive) is configured on fastethernet, the line will stay up even though the MII is removed or the cable is disconnected. If the interface is then reconfigured with "keepalive" (of non-zero value) while the physical media stayed down, the link would still indicate up. The only workaround is by doing a shut/no shut, or clear interface command.
A large packet sent over a MLP bundle of over 2 links with VPDN on a ATM PPP tunnel on a ATM-Lite interface will be corrupted sometimes. A workaround is to disable the fastswitching on the ATM-lite interface.

IP Routing Protocols

If ospf has both an external and a summary route to the same network and a partial spf run deletes the summary route, the external route will not be installed.
The external LSA may have the routing bit set, even if it is not installed in the routing table. This is caused by a failure to reset the external's routing bit when the summary route replaces the external route in the ip routing table. The following sequence of events illustrates the problem, given external and summary routes to network 1.0.0.0:
1. ospf installs external route to 1.0.0.0. The external LSA for 1.0.0.0 has its routing bit set 2. ospf installs summary route to 1.0.0.0, replacing the external route. The routing bit is not reset on the external LSA for 1.0.0.0. 3. ospf performs a partial spf to remove the summary route to 1.0.0.0. The external route to 1.0.0.0 is not installed. To add to the confusion, the routing bit is still set on the external LSA for 1.0.0.0.
A'clear ip route *' will force the installation of the external route. Alternatively, a'clear ip ospf redist' at the router that originates the external route will trigger installation of the external route.
Guaranteed service flowspec in RSVP RESV messages must contain certain fields within a certain range (as indicated by RFC 2212). This fix puts these checks in the code
With sync and certain topologies, some bgp routes may not get advertised after peer reset.
The workaround is to configure "no sync", or "clear ip bgp x.x.x.x".

ISO CLNS

On all platforms which do not use the old mci controller, fast-switching of clns traffic with non-zero N-Selector does not work.

Miscellaneous

When running 2523 and 2524 serial ports in asynchronous mode, modem control is only supported when using DTE style 5-in-1 cables (in order to connect to DCE devices). The DCE 5-in-1 cable (in order to connect to DTE devices) will not support modem control for the asynchronous mode. In order to support DTE devices with modem control, it is required to use the DTE style cables with a null modem adapter.
When you configure Bisync (encapsulation bstun) with the ASCII character set (bsc char-set ascii) on the first port of a serial WIC (1T, 2T, or 2A/S) in WIC slot 0 of a Cisco 2600 series router, only the first character of each frame is received, and the BSTUN tunnel is not established. This only affects Bisync mode when it is configured with the ASCII character set. Other encapsulations are not affected, and using the EBCDIC character set with Bisync works correctly.
For the first serial port in WIC slot 0, the parity detection is not configured correctly for Bisync in ASCII mode. The first character of each frame generates a parity error that causes the receiver to discard the frame after the first character received.
Workaround: Use a different serial port: either the second serial port (port 1) on a 2T or 2A/S WIC in WIC slot 0 or any serial port in WIC slot 1. If you have only one serial WIC, moving it from WIC slot 0 to WIC slot 1 fixes this problem.
When running Tag Switching and CEF on an Ethernet interface, it is possible for the interface to get into a state where the IP packets are not forwarded properly.
The problem occurs when a CEF entry is improperly pointing at a Tag data structure. To check whether this is the problem, do
show adjacency detail
for the next hop on the failing route. In the failure case, the packet counts on the "IP" adjacency will not be increasing, but those on the "TAG" one will.
Workaround: disable Tag switching on the interface
When enrolling certificate with Entrust VPN, you might fail to get CA certificates. So far, this problem only happened on the Cisco 2500 platform and there is no work around. Please upgrade to the next build.
In Release 11.2P and 11.3 when Fast Ethernet subinterfaces are configured for encryption, if the crypto map is only applied to the main interface and the IP address is configured in the subinterface, the packets could be switched in the clear. In Release 12.0, enabling CEF could cause the packets to get dropped.
When you run TRISL to a Cisco 7000 family router, some frames larger than 1535 bytes might not be forwarded. This condition occurs when you run TRISL between two VLANs that are on switches.
Workaround: Do not use TRISL. Use an external device to router or bridge between the two different VLANs. Or modify the end devices so that they do not send packets larger than 1500 bytes.
From enclosure: Release-note
A Cisco 1600 router or Cisco 3600 series router will reload when IPSEC is configured over the ISDN link. This condition is caused by the IP route-cache that is enabled by default on all interfaces.
The workaround is to turn off fast switching with the no ip route-cache command on the ISDN interfaces.
From enclosure: Release-note-2
This crash has also been seen on the 3600 platform.
If a UDP packet with an invalid length is sent to port 514 (the "syslog" port) on an IOS device, the device is likely to crash, possibly without saving a stack trace. Such packets are sent by the popular "nmap" port scanning program.

Wide-Area Networking

StatusMsg with endpointRef is not processed in multipoint state table. This could result in releasing multipoint vc.

Resolved Caveats - Release 12.0 T

All the caveats listed in this section are resolved in release 12.0(2)T.

IP Routing Protocols

workaround:
The workaround is to configure "router rip" on the router first, before configuring the address on the interface.

Miscellaneous

RADIUS accounting does not work if you have separate authentication and accounting servers.
An IP client might not be able to ping the Route Switch Module (RSM). This situation might occur during Token-Ring Virtual LAN (TR VLAN) configuration on the RSM. It is most common when the IP client sends an address resolution protocol (ARP) without a routing information field (RIF), then sends an ARP with a RIF. The situation might also occur if the concentrator relay function (CRF), to which the client is connected, is configured for source-route bridging (SRB). Workaround: Change the CRF mode from SRB to source-route transparent (SRT) bridging.

Novell IPX, XNS, and Apollo Domain

The Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) input process might run out of stack, causing a system reload or reduced performance. There is no workaround.
