Techy articles for the month of January

Hey my techy readers,

I will now be writing only one article per month summarizing all the techy articles I write for Intense School so that should drive down the number of techy posts on this blog tremendously. Did I hear you guys shout hallelujah? *hehe*

For the month of January, we have the following topics:

  • Route maps: Learn the fundamentals of route maps here.
  • Bridging VPNs: This series has four parts: part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4. It looks at the following scenario: Site A and Site B have a site-to-site VPN connection between themselves. Site C is a new site that needs to also have VPN access to Site B but for some reason, this new VPN access has to go through Site A which will then route it to site B.
  • Site-to-Site VPN with overlapping subnets (on Cisco ASA): This one has two parts but only the first part has been posted for now. It discusses what to do when you need to set up a VPN tunnel between two subnets using the same IP address space.

I actually didn’t write a lot in the past month because I was busy with other stuff. Let’s see how February plays out. Happy new month in advance!

Using scripting to automate tasks

Recently, I had to make the same configuration on several devices. It would have been a bore to log into them one after the other to paste the configuration; therefore, I used a script to achieve this. I then wrote articles documenting what I did. You can find those articles here: part 1 and part 2.

Be sure to visit the Intense School Cisco bootcamp page for training options.

BGP Articles

BGP

Hey guys,

It’s been a while since I last posted something. This week, we have technical articles on the Intense School site dealing with BGP. BGP is not well understood (because it is not used frequently by many people) and so I believe these articles will be beneficial to you:

Also, we have some other articles that are not related to BGP like the article on IPv6 adoption challenges and the different packet switching methods used in Cisco including fast switching and CEF.

Some of these articles are relevant to Cisco certifications and you should visit the Intense School Cisco bootcamp page for more training options.

MPLS Articles

MPLS

MPLS articles

MPLS was one of those things I knew nothing about but now I’m on my way to knowledge. As I go along, I have also written some article relating to this technology. Great thing is the articles have been getting a lot of traffic and I hope you also benefit from them.

MPLS is more likely to appear in Cisco service provider exams than other tracks so you should visit the Intense School Cisco bootcamp page for more training options.

More on IPv6

IPv6 tunnels

It’s been a while since we had any technical post on this blog so here goes. We have more IPv6 articles both from a Cisco perspective and tunneling mechanisms.

Some of these articles are relevant to Cisco certifications and you should visit the Intense School Cisco bootcamp page for more training options.

Psst…the Cisco Mentoring Program has launched!

I often get messages from people just starting out their Networking career and others who are well on their way: they would like to talk to someone who has gone ahead on the path they are currently treading. Other times, they have questions (technical and otherwise) they would like answered. Generally speaking, what they want in one word is a “Mentor”.

Rather than randomly looking for a Cisco mentor, I decided to make it official. I recently launched Continue reading
