    It’s good excellent work IE Sec team, but can we have some timeline as when IE Sec vol1 and vol2 will be complete release, with this it will be great help in planning schedule.

  3. Razvan says:

    Petr, do you happen to know how many ASA devices are in th real exam? I mean if there are only 2 and they give you A/A failover, no more VPN or dynamic routing. Thanks

  4. I would love to see a date where Petr will say: I’m wasted, let’s keep it like this for a while :-P Than I can order my printed materials :-)

    At this point you guys are ahead of me, before I complete one lab you release another:). But I will surely catch you soon.

    Good work.

    So far they always had 2 ASAs in the lab. Don’t think they are going to change this, as having 2 appliances is more than enough to test any applicable feature.

    Hello Petr,

    good job; but can you please have initial configs for other rack numbers (4,5,6,7,8,ect…) for the R&S labs. It would really help other than always getting use to Rack1.


  8. Tom says:

    Hello Petr,

    is there any updates for Dynamips labs ?


  9. John Spaulding says:

    Yeah I would really like the initial configs for the other rack numbers as well. That would help save some time atleast on my part :)

    Very sorry for ask again, could you publish your re-schedule of the release data for security workbook? After all,it’s June 23th today, and my scheduled lab is in middle of July.

    • Hi,

      I try avoiding speaking out exact date, as life appears to be less predictable then i thought. So far, I’m working no more hotfix topics this week + lab5 which should come early in July. I guess you would see most of the hotfix topics + get enough vol2 labs for a good practice. I believe we should get lab6 released before your lab date for sure as well.

  11. Yanchong says:

    Thanks a lot once again! Your SC Volume I/II are most valuable product during my CCIE study!

  12. SickMonkey says:

    What is going on with the Security COD?

    I need the HOT topics / NEW topics for that one.

  13. Yanchong says:


    I thought the Security Volume I workbook is enough for me to digest those new topics.


    Hope more HOTFIX come by this weekend.
