Talk:Cisco Packet Mayhem 00
Intensity and direction
- The intensity of the workgroup will be bi-weekly
- Direction of the workgroup: to understand Cisco products, it's config, building a lan and getting it up and running.
(Feel free to add any suggestions or other, regarding the intensity and/or direction)
Weapon of choice
- Already packettracer has proven it's usefullnes in this workgroup.
- The software has enough build-in properties to get us going.
- My proposal would be to stick to this one. It fits our needs, imho.
- My first introduction with the software. And i must say, it's great. TomD made a small lan, consisting out of 2 routers, 2 switches and a host.
- The functionality of packettracer, with it's additional features is enough to get anybody going. This is a great tool for anybody who want's to learn about the inner workings of a lan.(regarding Cisco products ofcourse)
- The challenge here was to get packets flowing from one router to another. The packets would be introduced to the lan, by the host. By doing so, we also got to cover the initial configuring of a Cisco router.
First peek into IOS
- We got our first peek into IOS. This will need some studying, as the commands and levels in wich to implement the commands, are very different from what i'm used to.
- Keeping in mind that Cisco has a very fragmented line of products (both in hard- and software), the config's will vary from product to product. Wich makes this workshop very usefull for anybody who has to support the products or is just interrested.
- This time, we added the information nessecary to get the packets flowing from one router to another. Also the configuration of the links was in order.
- Learning by doing is the right way to go.
