Techy Post: Thin-client SSL VPN

This week on the Intense School site, we have a new article in the Cisco Configuration Professional Series. This article discusses how to configure thin-client SSL VPN using CCP. Thin-client SSL VPN, also called port forwarding, provides secure access to fixed TCP port services such as SSH, Telnet, and SMTP.

The labs in the CCP series are related to the Cisco Security exams (CCNA, CCNP Security, CCIE Security) and if you want to learn more about these exams, classes are available at Intense School!

Techy Posts: GNS3 Articles on Intense School

Hey guys,

This week, we have two new articles on the Intense School site. The first article is a continuation of the CCP series where we customize the SSL VPN interface. In the second article, I discuss an issue I discovered with GNS3 and VPN clients when connecting from the host system. Be sure to check these out.

From receiving to giving

It’s been a while since I wrote a post that wasn’t techy but I thought I will share this.

In Genesis 37, the Bible introduces Joseph the dreamer. Gen 37:5 reads thus:

“And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more

I can’t imagine what it would have been like being Joseph- hated by your own brothers to the point of being sold (they even wanted to kill him) but that is not where I’m going with this. As we continue in the story of Joseph, we see that he is a boy/man who has the fear of God in him and God made him prosper everywhere he went. Then in Genesis 40, we see Joseph the Interpreter and it was this act of interpretation that eventually led to his release from prison and uplifting, albeit 2 years later.

Then it struck me: The dreams we receive will become reality when we start giving something to bring about the fulfillment of those dreams, that is, being a solution provider.

 

Techy post: More Technical articles at Intense School!

On the Intense School site, we have four new articles, three of which are on the Cisco ASA and the latest one is on the Cisco Configuration Professional Tool (CCP).

The first article continues with the Cisco ASDM series by looking at access control rules while the second article focuses on IPsec remote access VPN. In this 3rd article, I write on an interesting discovery (it has always been there but I only just discovered it) about to-the-box filtering on the Cisco ASA. The final article is the 9th lab in the CCP series dealing with clientless SSL VPN.

Hey guys, we have more articles on the Intense School site concerning the Cisco ASA. This series deals with using the Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) to configure the Cisco ASA. The following articles have been posted:

Techy Post: Site-to-Site VPN Labs

It seems this blog is focusing a lot on technical writing. Perhaps it’s a phase in my life. Let’s flow with it for now. On the Intense School site, we now have a two-part lab on configuring a Site-to-Site VPN using the Cisco Configuration Professional tool. You can read them here: part 1 and part 2.

The cool thing about CCP is that it contains a lot of wizards and you can even view the configuration before it is sent to the device. The labs in the CCP series are related to the Cisco Security exams (CCNA, CCNP Security, CCIE Security) and if you want to learn more about these exams, classes are available at Intense School!

Techy Post: Cisco ASA articles

Hey there…

Back on our techy posts, two articles of mine have been posted over at the Intense School site. The first one deals with setting up ASDM on A Cisco ASA in GNS3. This article is a prep for an upcoming ASDM series. The second article recreates a real life scenario about debugging Internet connectivity through the Cisco ASA.

One of the articles (the first one) is related to the CCNA Security exam and if you want to learn more about the CCNA Security exam, classes are available at Intense School!
