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!

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!
