Frame-Relay Switching

EEM Scripting: CLI Events
EEM Scripting: Periodic Scheduling
EEM Scripting: Advanced Features

Briding & Switching:

PPP AAA Authentication


EIGRPv6 Summarization

Like I mentioned before, ten IEWB-RS VOL2 scenarios have been updated as well, to reflect the changes in the Configuration section of the new CCIE R&S exam. You will now have to work through more IP Services tasks and bulky IGP/BGP scenarios. We’re constantly working on optimizing our products based on the feedback our students give us. Next on our TODO list – more Dynamips labs and the final set of VOL4 scenarios. As for the people waiting for the SP Core Knowledge Simulator – it’s coming live next week, we haven’t forgotten it!

Happy studying and thanks for choosing INE!

Hi Everyone,

We’ve just posted more updates to our renowned IEWB-RS VOL1 – Technology focused labs. The MPLS section is now complete (well maybe just a couple more tasks coming) resulting in 16 new scenarios. In addition to that, the Security section of VOL1 has been updated as well, featuring another 10 labs. That makes a total of 26 more new scenarios with breakdowns, solutions, and verifications! Here is the list of the new topics added:


VRF Lite
MPLS Label Filtering
MP-BGP Prefix Filtering
PE-CE Routing with RIP
PE-CE Routing with OSPF
OSPF Sham-Link
PE-CE Routing with EIGRP
EIGRP SOO and Cost Community
PE-CE Routing with BGP
BGP AS Override
Internet Access
MPLS VPN Performance Tuning


Control Plane Protection
IOS ACL Selective IP Option Drop
BGP Generic TTL Security Mechanism
Flexible Packet Matching
Zone Based Firewall
ZFW Rate Limiting
ZFW Application Inspection
Classic IOS Transparent Firewall
ZFW-Based IOS Transparent Firewall

I know the question on your minds :). What’s next on track? More IEWB-RS VOL2 (Configuration Full Scale Labs) and IEWB-RS VOL4 (Troubleshooting) updates of course! And don’t ask me about EIGRPv6 – it’s only 3 commands to enter in the configuration ;) Alright, it will be added to the IPv6 section too, as well as the IPv6 Multicast basics! However, please remember that MPLS VPNs and the security features is the core of the new technologies added to the updated blueprint!

Thanks for choosing INE and happy studying!


Hello Everyone!

For those of you preparing for the updated CCIE R&S exam - half of our Full-Scale Labs workbook (10 labs) have been fully updated to match the requirements of the new, CCIE R&S v4.0 blueprint. The full-scale scenarios have been significantly changed and a lot of new tasks added. You will find such exciting topics as MPLS VPN, Zone Based Firewall, EEM, and many others. Like mentioned in previous posts, the new labs do not include the basic configuration requirements, but rather ask you to deal with advanced scenarios, having a lot of things already pre-configured. The remaining ten full-scale labs we expect to complete in October. Of course, every existing owner of VOL2 gets these updates absolutely FREE!

Now for those of you who want more advanced technology mini-scenarios: we posted the initial version of the new MPLS VPN section for our IEWB-RS VOL1 workbook. It includes the initial 7 minilabs out of the following list of the labs for the new section:

  • VRF Lite
  • MPLS Label Filtering
  • MP-BGP VPNv4
  • MP-BGP Prefix Filtering
  • PE-CE Routing with RIP
  • PE-CE Routing with OSPF
  • OSPF Sham-Link
  • PE-CE Routing with EIGRP
  • EIGRP SOO and Cost Community
  • PE-CE Routing with BGP
  • BGP AS Override
  • Internet Access
  • Central Services VPN
  • Extranets
  • MPLS VPN Performance Tuning

This particular section should be completed next week, followed by part of our Security mini-scenarios to cover the new security-relevant topics of the updated CCIE R&S blueprint. And not only this, more updates to VOL4 are coming next week as well!

Thanks for choosing INE, and happy studying!
