For success designing and implementing Cisco Wireless solutions, a CCNA Wireless student needs to be familiar with the options for various wireless topologies. Two were defined by the 802.11 committees, while others were made possible thanks to excellent developments by wireless vendors like Cisco Systems. The 802.11 Topologies Ad Hoc Mode While not popular, it is possible to have wireless devices communicate directly with no central device managing the communications. This is called the Ad Hoc...

As you may have noticed, INE does a wide variety of training in the Cisco space.  :)    This blog post goes out to all those folks who have recently begun their Cisco training. This month we delivered new live classes on CCNA and CCNP. We are excited for and encourage our students at every level in their journey.   In that light, we have gathered a collection of Videos Answers, targeted at the CCNA level, with a few topics leaking into security and CCNP.   These videos were primarily created as...

Thank you to all those who have submitted questions and comments to our blog and our CCIE Instructors. If you have a question, please email them to blog@ine.com. Question 1: Can anyone explain what is VPN intercept? -- Bhavik Joshi VPN Intercept can mean a few different things, depending on the specific context. One interpretation is from a driver perspective, where a VPN connection breaks the binding between TCP/IP and the physical interface, acting as a shim.  See also:... Read More

Sometimes its the simple things that are struggled with. RIP is one of those. Most CCIE candidates understand that we can change the interface or global parameters for updates, unicast, multicast, etc. What does take some time, is figuring out the global timers, especially if a person is not sure how they interact. In this post, we will address the RIP process level timers for update, invalid, hold down and flush. I don't want you to sleep during this, so we will save that one for later. Timers... Read More

This blog post is taken from the INE Resources area Understanding Frame-Relay Traffic Shaping presentation by Brian Dennis. Overview Frame-Relay traffic shaping is designed to control the amount of traffic the router sends out of an interface or out of a particular DLCI. Common reasons for Frame-Relay traffic shaping are: It allows the router to conform to the rate subscribed with the service provider It allows for the throttling of a higher speed site (768K) so that it does not overrun a lower...

In this post, we will examine PAP and CHAP forms of PPP authentication. The emphasis here will be on the fact that these technologies are one-way in nature. So many of my CCIE-level students believe that they must be configured in a bidirectional configuration. I guess this is because it is what traditional Cisco classes always demonstrate at the CCNA and CCNP levels. OK - I have pre-configured two routers, R1 and R2, they are connected by their Serial 0/0 interfaces. Let us begin with R1 as a... Read More

One of the key facts regarding Access Control Lists (ACLs) that we drill into your head during CCNA is the fact that the lists you create end with what is called the "implicit" deny all. You do not see it, but the effect is undeniable. Any packets that do not match any of the permit statements in your list get deny treatment. In the case of our filtering access lists, this means the packets are dropped. As you recall from the course, this is why we desperately require at least one permit entry... Read More
