    CCIE Voice Lab Exam Adding Short Answer Questions

    By admin | June 20, 2009

    Effective July 16, 2009, the new CCIE Voice Lab Exam v3.0 will be live for test candidates. Also effective July 16, 2009, the Cisco CCIE Voice Lab Exam will feature a new type of question format in a section called Core Knowledge. In this new section, candidates will be asked a series of four open-ended questions that require a short, typewritten response (typically several words). The questions will be randomly drawn from a pool of questions on topics currently eligible for testing on the CCIE Voice Lab Exam. No new topics are being added. Candidates will have up to 30 minutes to complete the Core Knowledge section of the exam, and may not return to the questions later. First introduced to the CCIE Routing and Switching lab exam in February 2009, Core Knowledge questions will eventually be added to all CCIE tracks. The changes allow Cisco to maintain strong exam security, and they help ensure that only qualified candidates are awarded CCIE certification.

    The summarization of EIGRP – BSCI

    By admin | June 12, 2009

    The characteristics of EIGRP follow:

    § Hybrid routing protocol (distance vector that has link-state protocol characteristics).

    § Use DUAL, first proposed by E. W. Dijkstra and C. S. Scholten, to perform distributed shortest-path routing while maintaining freedom from loops at every instant. Although many researchers have contributed to the development of DUAL, the most prominent work is that of J. J. Garcia-Luna-Aceves.

    § Cisco Proprietary created in 1994.

    § First released in IOS 9.21

    § Uses IP protocol 88.

    § Makes Automatic summarization on network Class boundary.

    GNS3 – Start Your Lab

    By admin | June 10, 2009

    image GNS3 is a good simulator, and many people use it. B Haines has written a post about the GNS3, maybe useful for you!

    I wanted a reference to get GNS3 installed and running with links to important sites so here it is! Enjoy!

    I. First you need to download and install GNS3. It is available from here:


    II. Second you will want to download the IOS Unpack utility available here:


    III. Install GNS3! Here is a link to a very good tutorial that covers both Windows as well as Linux (Ubuntu) installs. This tutorial also covers configuration such as IDLEPC values, BESS et. al. (Note: If this link is broken then search the GNS3 website)

    Simple configuration of Context-Based Access Control

    By admin | June 9, 2009

    Technical characteristics:

    1. Traffic filtering

    CBAC checks not only the information of the network layer and the transport layer but also the information of the application layer.

    It can also filter the http traffic and block java plug-in

    2. Traffic monitoring

    CBAC monitors the traffic passing through the router and handles the TCP and UDP state information which can be used to generate the temporary list to release the rebound traffic and other traffic allowed.

    3. Alert and audit

    EIGRP Stub Routers

    By admin | June 8, 2009

    Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Cisco’s proprietary yet hugely successful and widely deployed routing protocol, is known to behave disappointingly in inadequately designed networks. Cisco has improved EIGRP’s behavior dramatically with the introduction of stub routers in Cisco IOS release 12.0(7)T (integrated in IOS release 12.1, thus being available for a number of years). However, this feature has remained a well-hidden mystery, appearing in a short whitepaper, a Networkers presentation and getting five slides (almost identical to the Networkers presentation) in the release 3.0 of the Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) course.

    In this article, we’ll explore the typical problems that the EIGRP stub routers help to solve, see how the introduction of stub routers improves network stability, and implement a fully redundant remote location (stub site); yet another very common design requirement that is not documented anywhere.

    Introduction to Stub Routers

    Let’s start with an easy example: here is a central site router linked to a large number of remote offices over slow speed or unreliable links (Figure 1).
