Release Notes for Cisco AS5300 for Cisco  IOS Release  12.0 T

Release Notes for Cisco AS5300 for Cisco  IOS Release  12.0 T

December 14, 1998

These release notes describe new features for the Cisco  AS5300 universal access server that are supported in Cisco  IOS 12.0 T releases, up to and including 12.0(2)T. These release notes are updated with each maintenance release of the Cisco  IOS software, which is typically every 6 weeks.

Use these release notes in conjunction with the cross-platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release  12.0  located on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM.

For a list of software caveats that apply to Release 12.0(2)T, refer to the "Caveats" section later in this document and to the Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T document that accompanies these release notes and is also available on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.

Contents

These release notes discuss the following topics:

Introduction

The Cisco AS5300 universal access server is a versatile data communications platform that provides the functions of an access server, a router, and a bank of digital modems in a single modular chassis. The access server is intended for Internet service providers (ISPs), telecommunications carriers, and other service providers that offer managed Internet connections, as well as medium to large sites that provide both digital and analog access to users on an enterprise network. By terminating both analog and digital calls on the same chassis simultaneously, the access server provides a clear, simple, and easy migration path from today's analog dial access services to tomorrow's digital dial access services.

System Requirements

This section describes system requirements, and includes the following sections:

Memory Requirements

Table 1 describes the memory requirements for the Cisco  AS5300 images supported by Cisco  IOS  Release12.0(2)T. Flash memory is optional for the Cisco  AS5300 images.

Determining Your Cisco IOS Software Release

To determine the version of Cisco IOS software currently running on your access server, log on to the AS5300 and enter the show version EXEC command:

router> show version

An output begins similar to the following. The Cisco IOS version appears in the second line.

Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software 
IOS (tm) 5300 Software (C5300-JS-M), Version 12.0(2)T.......

The output includes more information including processor revision numbers, memory amounts, hardware IDs, and partition information. For information on upgrading to a new software release, see the "Cisco Connection Online" section.

Updating to a New Release

At the time of this printing, no product bulletins are available for upgrading to Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T. For generic information on updating to a new software release, refer to the Cisco IOS Software Release Upgrade Paths and Packaging Simplification  product bulletin located on CCO. On CCO, follow this path:

Products and Ordering: More Information: Product Bulletins. Scroll to Software. Under Cisco  IOS 11.3, click the Upgrade Paths bulletin.

This bulletin does not contain information specific to Release 12.0 T, but it does provide updating information that might apply to Release 12.0 T.

Modem Code

Cisco IOS Release 11.2 and later releases include modem code for the Cisco AS5300, which is the firmware or portware that runs on the Microcom 12-port and MICA  6-port modem cards. Modem code is either stored in modem flash memory or bundled in the Cisco IOS software image. When the Cisco AS5300 access server is powered on, the Cisco  IOS software unpacks the modem code and loads the proper code on the modem cards. Table 3  lists the current modem code versions.

1For Cisco IOS releases with "and later" releases indicated, compatibility exists on that maintenance release and later maintenance releases on that Cisco IOS train. For example, "Release 11.3(5)T and later" translates to compatibility with Release 11.3(6)T, Release 11.3(7)T, Release 11.3(8)T, and so forth.
2Only version 3.3.20 of the Microcom V.34 modem firmware is bundled in Cisco IOS software. The earlier versions of Microcom modem code are stored in modem flash memory.
3Only the latest version of MICA modem portware is bundled in each Cisco IOS release; the previous portware versions are not bundled.
4This MICA portware version includes support for the Cisco Dial-Out Utility (CDU) .
5The V.110 terminal adapter firmware is not bundled in Cisco IOS software.

The show modem mapping command lists all versions of modem code running on the modem modules, residing in system Flash, and bundled with Cisco IOS software. Enter the show modem mapping command to help you decide if you need to update your modem code files.


Note The Cisco factory could have installed a later version of modem code than the one bundled with the Cisco IOS software. The factory installs modem code in Flash memory and maps that code to the modems.

To understand how Cisco IOS software uses Microcom modem code, see the section "Modem Code" in the Installing 56K 12-Port Modem Modules in Cisco  AS5300 Universal Access Servers publication. To understand how Cisco IOS software uses Mica modem code, see the section "Modem Code" in the Installing 6-Port Modules and Carrier Cards in  Cisco AS5300 Universal Access Servers publication.

Enterprise Plus IPSec 56 3DES

Based on the Enterprise Plus image with 56-bit encryption. Includes Triple-DES, the IPSec standard for high-security encryption.

New and Changed Information

This section lists new features available for the AS5300 in the Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T software. To locate the online documentation about these features, refer to the "Feature Modules" section.

New Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)T

The following enhancement to the IPSec feature in the Cisco IOS software is available for the AS5300 in IOS Release 12.0(2)T.

Triple-DES Encryption

The IPSec feature in the Cisco IOS now implements Triple-DES, the IPSec standard for high-security encryption, as described in the IETF draft specification "The ESP Triple DES Transform", by N. Doraswamy, P. Metzger, and W.A. Simpson. This transform uses three independent DES keys to achieve security far greater than that of DES.

For more information, refer to the Triple DES Encryption for IPSec document. This document is available on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM.

Cisco Dial-Out Utility

This feature is now supported on the AS5300 when using MICA modem portware version 2.5.1.0. The Cisco Dial-Out Utility (CDU) is a COM port redirector that utilizes a protocol defined in RFC 2217 for communications between the client PC and a network dial access server (NAS).

New Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(1)T

The following new features are available for the Cisco AS5300 in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(1)T. To locate the online documentation about these features, refer to the "Feature Modules" section.

CLI String Search

The Command Line Interface (CLI) String Search feature allows you to search or filter the output of any show or more command. 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 --More-- 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, or other type of information that appears in show or more command output.

Easy IP Phase 2-DHCP Server

With the introduction of Easy IP Phase 2, Cisco IOS software also 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.

ISDN MIB RFC 2127

The new Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) Management Information Base (MIB) RFC 2127 has been designed to provide useful information in accordance with the IETF's new standard for the management of ISDN interfaces. It controls all aspects of ISDN interfaces. RFC 2127 provides information on the physical Basic Rate Interfaces (BRIs), control and statistical information for B (bearer) and D (signaling) channels, terminal endpoints, and directory numbers.

The ISDN MIB RFC 2127 controls all aspects of ISDN interfaces. It consists of five groups:

The ISDN MIB RFC 2127 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.

Time-Based Access Lists

It is now possible to implement access lists based on the time of day. To do so, 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 continuously in effect after they had been applied. Both named or numbered access lists can reference a time range.

Limitations and Restrictions

This section describes warnings and cautions about using the Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T software.

Encryption Images

Triple-DES encryption images are available in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)T and later 12.0 T releases. They are not available in Release 12.0(1)T. See Table 1, Table 4, and Table 5 for more information.

Cisco IOS images with strong encryption are subject to U.S. Government export controls, and have a limited distribution. Images to be installed outside the U.S. require an export license. Customer orders might be denied or subject to delay due to U.S. Government regulations. Contact your sales representative or distributor for more information, or send e-mail to export@cisco.com.

Voice over IP Not Supported

Voice over IP (VoIP) is not currently supported on the Cisco AS5300 in Cisco IOS Release12.0 (2)T and previous Release 12.0 T maintenance releases. It is scheduled to be supported in Release 12.0(3)T and later 12.0 T releases.

The VoIP feature is supported on the AS5300 in IOS Release 11.3(2)NA and in later 11.3 NA releases. For more information, see the Release Notes for Cisco AS5300 for Cisco IOS
Release 11.3 NA
document. This document is available on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM.

Caveats

This section contains the open and resolved caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)T only. For a list of software caveats that apply to previous maintenance releases (for example, Release 12.0(1)T), refer to the Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.0T document that accompanies these release notes. The caveats document is located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.

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.

For additional information about caveats that can apply to this platform, refer to the following documents:

Open Caveats---12.0(2)T

This section describes possibly unexpected behavior by Release 12.0(2)T. This section describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats.

Basic System Services

The [no] atm rmon collect group-num command does not properly take effect when invoked. The ATM-RMON feature (available only on the LS-1010 platform) is fully functional, except when you assign ATM interfaces to ATM-RMON collection groups. In this situation, you must set the associated MIB objects with SNMP. See the portSelTable definitions in the ATM-RMON-MIB.my MIB document for more information. There is no workaround.

IP Routing Protocols

When you use sparse-mode PIM multicast, the multicast tree may take a few minutes to stabilize after the routers are booted. During this period, "PATH" messages sent to multicast addresses are not delivered, and RSVP path and reservation sessions are not established. This is a transient phenomenon that occurs only when the routers are being booted. Once the multicast tree stabilizes, paths and reservations are established quickly. This problem does not occur in unicast or dense-mode multicast networks.
Workaround: Use sparse-dense or dense mode PIM multicast, if possible.

Miscellaneous

If flow-acceleration is enabled, then disabled, and encryption is subsequently enabled, the router may unexpectedly reload.
Workaround: Avoid enabling and then disabling flow-acceleration.
The IP portion of an incoming call might not terminate correctly if the caller closes the connection. This situation is the result of rare timing conditions. There is no workaround.

Novell IPX, XNS, and Apollo Domain

IPX allows the primary interface and multiple ISL subinterfaces to have the same IPX network number and encapsulation.
Workaround: Do not configure interfaces with the same IPX network number.

Wide-Area Networking

A Cisco router might fail to reply to an Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) incoming on the Bridged Virtual Interface (BVI) when the ARP table is clean. The following error message appears if "debug arp" is turned on: "00:50:23: IP ARP req filtered src 10.1.1.254 0000.0c32.ed77, dst 10.1.1.1 0000.0000.0000 wrong cable, interface Virtual-Access."
Workaround: To install the ARP entries, initiate traffic from the router and force an incoming ARP BVI reply.
Removing a dialer interface while a call is up can result in the loss of use of one B channel.
Workaround: A reload of the router will bring the B channel back.

Resolved Caveats---Release 12.0(2)T

All the caveats listed in this section are resolved in Release 12.0(2)T. This section describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats.

IP Routing Protocols

On some platforms, for example the Cisco  7200  series  routers, RIP does not get enabled on Token Ring interfaces. The output of the sh ip proto command will indicate "Reset all is OK."
Workaround: Configure router rip on the router before configuring the address on the interface. A shut command followed by a no shut command might also bring up RIP 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), and 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.
