Cisco Tips & Tricks

Narbik’s Bootcamp Day-1

Filed under: ccie, IP Routing, Router — ciscotips @ 7:35 pm

This is my first ever training class of Cisco. I never knew what to expect. Most of the guys have either attended boot-camps from other vendors or have attended other cisco classes in the past. For me its all for the first time. Without bragging I must say Narbik class is full of tips and tricks 🙂 . People say no to experiments AND do exactly what is specified in doc cd but Narbik is different. He recommendsless commands to accomplish the task. Simply do what is meaningful. Don’t do things which doesn’t mean anything?

The first day was 60-70% hands on as Narbik handed us 5 volumes of Advance CCIE R&S workbook. and a seperate bootcamp workbook. First day we did basic switching hands on and then Narbik went through Security topics ( Theory/White board… no slides/projectors). Here is the list

Vlan Mapping
MAC Floding
DHCP snooping
IP source-guard
Private VLan’s

And some Great Tips on FR, which I’ll probably share in my later posts.
