    A students’ review of Narbik’s CCIE Boot Camp

    Narbik's bootcamp costs $2995. It's only $1499 if you've been on one of his other bootcamps (eg: Security, SP etc). The bootcamp for me would be the kind of motivational tool for me. How many guys we know that went on the bootcamps and have passed (ChancesD, Noob13, CiscoMaster, etc) and then there were guys like me who said we would self-study and use Dynamips. Now these guys are earning triple figures or at least are on a good wage and have left guys like me behind still bitching about "The CCIE program is messed up" or "V4 is too hard now!" If i had just taken the bootcamp and been more dedicated i would have been up there with those guys. So enough is enough. PS: I know CiscoMaster never took a bootcamp but he bought the equipment and was dedicated to the cause

    When is your CCIE Lab date?

    Check this out guys - just read this on another site. Good news to ALL... Somone Finally passes CCIE RS V4.!!!!! INE would like to congratulate one of our fine students for passing the v4 R&S Lab Exam yesterday!!! Flavio Provedel is the VERY proud owner of CCIE #25793, and of course is proof to everyone else around here that people CAN INDEED pass the v4 R&S CCIE Lab! A hearty congratulations is in order, although as I understand it he is flying back home at the moment, so I'm sure he'll get all the exciting e-mails to boost his ego even more in a few hours! Smile Great work Flavio! And good news for everyone else! Study hard.... Pay attention.... Think properly, and you too can pass the v4 Lab exam! Here at INE, we have been noticing students getting more and more passing scores in the Core Technology questions and in the Troubleshooting section due to better studying and learning techniques. We knew it was merely a matter of time before all three sections enjoyed that same success, and here we have it! I hope everyone gets to enjoy the same feeling that Flavio is going through right now! Most likely a combination of being really worn out and VERY excited! So get off your butts and stop moping!! It's possible...

    No Lab dates...

    Hi All, I must have had my head in the sand or something? For the past 3 months i've been studying for this CCIE but was broke. Now i've managed to land a job at AT&T and decided to book the exam - guess what? NO DATES. Gutted. But at the same time laughing - how can you have been so naive? All that hardwork and sacrifice with no money for no reason. I could have just kept a job and relaxed. My friend CiscoMaster said just book the exam and worry about the rest later, the wisdom of hindsight....

    Congratulations, my main Man.. The Cisco Master. Glad to see you mentioned me - but my name here is GUNGA_JIM... not Ibrahim Me next, God willing....

    CCIE R&S - Passed!

    Let me be the first... err, probably about the eighth to congratulate you. Anybody who is worried about the open questions check out my blog. I'm going to start putting some samples on it Sorry for the slight highjacking, but i think there are a lot of people concerned about this. Also due to Beavis' suggestion for the next 2 months i will dedicate 60% of my time to Practical labbing and the other 40% to theory. Too much time invested to just give up... Maybe Beavis could tell me if i'm heading in the right direction.

    Good question was asked in the interview...

    My word, what a lot of responses to what on the outskirts is such a simple question. If you are using a 3640 with a switching module, the switching module is still using the fastEthernet ports. So if you are using serial ports then they won't be able to ping. If they are switches and everything is in VLAN 1 by default, then, yeah they should be able to ping. Router on a stick, private Vlans, L2 or L3 switches are just complicating a simple matter. On the 3640's, just use a routing protocol - i don't think that there is any need for the static routes. I haven't read the full post so i could be wrong...

    CCIE SP Lab Experience.

    Have i now officially become a geek? Should i change my name to CiscoGeek? I love this crap and read nothing else. Pass or Fail i read everybody's stories - i share their elation and i share their pain. How sad is that?

    Dynamips on Mac

    It was all down to a dodgy IOS that didn't work.... Just tried a couple of others and it's all up and running... Thanx for everyone's help...

    Dynamips on Mac

    I decided to go down the GNS3 route and got it up and running in less than a couple of hours (All praise to Allah). Just need to find out now how to test the Mac's utilisation, then i'll be adjusting the idlepc values, etc.

    Dynamips on Mac

    Yeah, i think it's more to do with the Dynamips setup on Mac OS X. I've been using Dynamips on Windows for everyday for a year or so now, so i'm pretty clued up in that respect. My .net file and dynagen setup is fine - but i can still open Dynagen without the correct "Terminal shell" running in Dynamips. This means that there's a problem on the Dynamips side. I'm gonna go through the crimsonsilo post and see if i can get this thing beat.

    After that if you type “ls /applications/cisco-images/c3640-jk9s-mz.123-14.T7.image” the file is there and the path is correct right?

I hope we can crack this beast. I'm sure i'm close and am missing something simple... why the flip doesn't the telnet net window open and why can't i enter any commands. Maybe i will try and download a 7200 image.

    Dynamips on Mac

    Aaah, I'm not the root user. I'm just an administrator - i borrowed the Mac just to try it out for a couple of days to see if it was worth buying one. Also i haven't decompressed the image as i downloaded ZIPEG and it didn't seem to like .bin files. Here's my .net file # Simple lab [localhost] [[3640]] image = /applications/cisco images/c3640-jk9s-mz.123-14.T7.image # On Linux / Unix use forward slashes: # image = /opt/7200-images/c7200-jk9o3s-mz.124-7a.image ram = 160 [[ROUTER R1]] s1/0 = R2 s1/0 model = 3640 [[router R2]] # No need to specify an adapter here, it is taken care of # by the interface specification under Router R1 model = 3640 I'm glad your onboard with me on this zgx - i should be joining your esteemed ranks soon

    Dynamips on Mac

    OK, OK guys... it all sounds extremely promising. BUT (and there's always a but) how do you set up the Sudo port procedure? Everybody says set Dynamips up as root... HOW? I'll have another look on the net, but i just placed it in the applications folder hoping that that would set it as a root folder. Also this sudo port thing - where do i apply the commands? Usually in a step by step instruction they say "Open the applications folder. When you see the terminal command flashing you should now be able to enter XYZ..." However with Mac they say "set the sudo conglomeration as the primary root preliminary without forgetting the antidisetablishmetary floccinoccinihilipilification (i may have just added that last bit..). Where/how do i apply the root? Where/how do i add the sudo ports? and by the way, thanks for all your responses..

    Dynamips on Mac

    I'm looking to get this to work on Mac, but can't seem to find any simple answers. Spent a couple of days on this and have managed to get the telnet/console prompt in dynagen to open - but i can't enter any flipping commands. I'm in the middle of some serious CCIE studies and i really don't think that i can spend any more time on this. I've looked at etherrealmind AND the 7200 hacki forum. I love the feel and look of the Mac - but without any linux/Unix experience i'm a bit stumped. If it wasn't for the fact that my advent Laptop exploded 2 weeks ago and couldn't handle a full lab scenario (and also that i'm getting BGP withdrawal symptoms ), i wouldn't be in this situation. But that being said i always wanted to try out a Mac - now i have i think i'll send it back! If anyone can come up with an idiots guide installation procedure without all the Sudo's and "Setting this as root" then let me know - otherwise i'm gonna go back to using windows XP. I hear that Advent have just bought out a Quad Core Laptop for less than a £1000.....
