I passed the ROUTE exam a few days/weeks/months/something ago and decided to pursue certifications of another sort for a while. The wife and I are trying our best to help the community through our ham radio training, so I decided to go down that path a bit further. One thing I was interested in doing is to do EmComm during declared emergencies. That meant I had to take two FEMA courses online to be allowed in the EOC. I thought they would be terribly boring, but I found them to be quite familiar.
There are three ways to manipulate the interface cost in OSPF. One is very direct, one changes the presentation of the interface, and the other changes the calculations for every interface.
When you configure OSPF network statements, IOS orders them most-specific to least-specific then does a top-to-bottom match of the interfaces. It doesn’t matter which order you put them in, the configuration will always be ordered with the longest prefix matches first. Lab time!
Let’s get an IPv4 default route into EIGRP. There are a few methods to do it. I hate most of them, though. I think it will be obvious which one I like. LOL
For both OSPF and EIGRP routers to become neighbors, their interface’s primary IP address must be on the same subnet. That statement is true. There is a subtle difference between the two, though.
I wanted to do some analysis of the EIGRP topology table last night, so I fired up a small lab. I was especially interested in how external routes appear there and compare to internal entries. Like all good scientific endeavors, the whole thing got derailed when I made a realization.
I don’t think I’m going to give a direct review of Cisco Live US this year. The conference was great with lots of stuff going on, but I really can’t contribute any more than the vast library of other posts on the subject. What I will do, though, is give my take on where I think the conference is headed. These are all my thoughts and have little to do with reality in some cases.
Everything is in order for my trip to Cisco Live 2014 in San Francisco. Conference passes are purchased. Hotels are reserved. Flights are booked. It’s going to be a great event, and I can’t wait!
I was just reading through Bob’s blog post from today and wanted to give a rebuttal of sorts. In summary, Bob tells us that’s he’s going to be at Cisco Live US in San Francisco this year but he won’t be attending any sessions. He’s going with the Social Event pass this year, which is actually a great, great way to attend the conference. I know several people who are thinking about scaling back to the Social Event pass as well, and there’s nothing wrong with doing it like that. It does, however, have some shortcomings that I feel are important.
Do not tell anyone I told you, but I heard a rumor today. It looks like the attendees will be in for quite a treat for the 25th Anniversary of the Customer Appreciate Event. It seems that we’re all going…
