hey switch fellas, completed my SWITCH lab today on ebay. i now got 2x 3550 and 2x 2950. would you recommend getting an access server with this or is it woth the hassle of setting up telnet on every device and jumping around between them?
i also stumbled upon this hereCisco 2509 2511 Octal NM-4A NM-8A NM-16A Console Cables | eBay
but that looks kinda like it wont work as you expect it to ;D

Yea I started going through some labs.. just some basic ones. Did vlans, vtp, basic stp, and setup some etherchannels. I think etherchannels are pretty cool. I've only read like 20 pages so far.. just wanting to lab a bit first so I can get my head back in the switching world. My head is still stuck in routing mode after spending 6 months on the Route exam.
