The Three Hosts – Unified Communication via Redistribution

I am currently working on a new Blog Post involving Ultramarines, Dark Angels and Space Wolves combining together against the forces of Chaos. With the different Chapters involved it will require the use of redistribution to create 3-way communication amongst the hosts.

Stay Tuned my Brothers.

Cisco Press Book of the Day SIP Trunking $9.99

 

Again, another great book of the day. Help bridge the New word old world divide with SIP Trunking. This book in the VoIP series is one for the collection.

The first complete guide to planning, evaluating, and implementing high-value SIP trunking solutions Most large enterprises have switched to IP telephony, and service provider backbone networks have largely converted to VoIP transport. But there’s a key missing link: most businesses still connect to their service providers via old-fashioned, inflexible TDM trunks.

Up next, the answers to Thunder Hawk Down.

Thunder Hawk Down–OSPF Authentication /w Area wide and Virtual Links

The sickening screech of scraping metal roared up the embankment on the horizon. Blood curdling screams of terror. brought home the stark reality of the situation. Thunder Hawk Icebane succumbed to Ork Rokkit Fire. “Brother Commander Darius Longfang, deploy the links and secure the channels. We need to re-establish contact with the Icebane.” a voice crackled down the vox caster. As the Wolves pushed their advance, the Orks proved to be a endless green tide of destruction. It was only a matter of time before Icebane was overwhelmed and the survivors of the crash surrounded and killed. Communication must be made to inform them that help was on its way.

Objectives

  • – Configure RID’s/Interface IP’s and Loopbacks.
  • – Establish an OSPF link from Space Wolves HQ Area 0 to Main Gate Comms Tower Area 252.
  • – Secure the link with the strongest authentication possible.
  • – Establish a Virtual link for Area 164 back to Area 0.
  • – Verify and inform the Icebane to hold on.
    • – Good Luck Brother Captain.
  • Thunderhawk Down

I will post the answers shortly.

Petition for Educational IOS emulator – etherealmind.com

Simple. Sign it.  http://etherealmind.com/cisco-ios-petition-reloaded/

 

We the undersigned ask Cisco to consider our petition for an open and usable IOS Emulator for learning, study and training.

We are the people who are learning about Data networking and Cisco IOS software. As students and practitioners, we need to learn theory and knowledge and then to take that knowledge and practice on Cisco IOS software.

We want to be able to practice that knowledge, and demonstrate our competence. We know that you are considering the value. This petition is to show our need for this solution. Wendel Odom discusses the possibility Cisco Considers IOS for Certifcation Self Study and we are calling for Cisco to make an option available.

This experience and knowledge we gain gives us the capability to make the most of Cisco equipment for our employers, your customers. We help drive the best return on investment, and keep the network performing in the way that your customers expect.

We can test configurations prior to making and be better prepared. We can develop more complex configurations than would otherwise be possible, and not blame the equipment afterwards.

We resolve problems more quickly, we make better designs and we have greater confidence in our work. We raise less support cases (and reduce your costs) by being to perform our own testing and validation.

Whether we are resellers, consultants, students or just interested in learning, we all need an practical method to access IOS and practice.

Therefore, we are asking Cisco Systems to make a version of IOS available for educational and testing purposes.

Also a new purchase as a part of the Foundation Learning Library. My god, It is a big big book. Seriously dangerous if reading when tired in bed. Extremely thorough thus far and not as dry as I had expected.

New Study Computer

Currently I am in a bit of a dilemma. I need a new computer that will be the foundation for my studies for CCNP and CCIE. I am not sure of the route I want to take yet. Notebook/Desktop.

My requirements are modest I suppose. Something that can run GNS3, Play my CBT nuggets and maybe play Diablo 3. Oh and to use for work occasionally. Any suggestions?
