  • Perhaps set up the network in a simulator? The setup will get you some familiarity of what does what and how it works and it gives you a platform to change things on. And it is directly pertinent to your job. A good amount of the concepts behind …
  • Cacti Netflow tells you what is on a link (and somewhat how much is on it), SNMP monitoring tools how much is on it.
  • Anything related to CCDA/CCDP. There are also many networking related blogs I would highly suggest adding to your daily reading list (google it, most are cross-linked to each other). It appears that you have a usable example of a network that ne…
  • When writing resume's I have found that telling what you did is as important if not more so then listing what you know/skills. "Shadowed NOC technicians to learn monitoring, troubleshooting, and escalation processes in preparation for the next in…
  • Depends on the position. Entry level, no reason to be concerned. Upper to senior level would leave me wondering. I've had interviews were there was an informal phone interview that was pretty much 100% technical before any in person interview wou…
  • CCNA/NP is more of "how", CCDA/DP is more of "why". The thing with network design is there are 10 or more ways to do any one thing, a couple are bad idea's, a couple are good idea's, and the rest will still work *most* of the time. Then multiply…

  • In the beginning stages having actual equipment can be helpful to get a familiarity with the physical aspect of it. Once that passes though the appeal of simulators increases. My lab methods: take an lab example and multiply it by 10, if the lab h…
  • I'm not sure why they want me to get it, I have no need for it and I'm not moving into management. I work for a contracting firm and it probably has something to do with buzzwords with clients, though I only do internal work. I really don't want t…

  • I managed to get lucky and find the datasheets on the non EOL switches (2948, 2950, 3508, 3550). Also found out that the 2924XL I bought won't do VLAN trunking, DOH. http://www.jlsnet.co.uk/index.php?tab=2&page=cc_2924 Anybody have the da…
  • I have some Cisco routers that I will be listing on Ebay, just wanted to give the people here a chance first. Your choice of IOS. 1x 2514 with 16/16 flash/ram and 2 AUI ethernet transcievers. This is the 2 ethernet version. 2x 2520 with 16/1…

  • Sure does, thanks. Looks like I'm going to have to get on the ball quickly since I have been studying for the current VPN, CSIDS, and Secur exams. Ugh. Brian
  • I heard that Cisco is updating the CSPFA exam sometime in September/October to include the IOS 7.0 release. If you have never worked with a PIX, 6.3 is still a good portion of the old PIX comand structure (I forget what the original name for the OS…
