CCIE Lab date Rescheduled

September 1, 2010

Sorry, I probably should have updated this blog about 3 months ago when I changed my lab date. But it has been changed to Sept. 27

Been in the trenches the last few months studying and creating my small business.

Too busy to talk now!

CCIE R&S lab has been scheduled

April 18, 2010

23 Aug 2010 is when I take the CCIE R&S lab in RTP, NC. I am very excited about the exam. I have also added a bunch of new videos on my youtube webpage.  I am on the INE Vol 2 WB right now and hope to complete all INE’s WB’s before I take the exam. I have also been doing INE’s CK, which is very good. I finished Narbik’s New V4 Workbooks, which were very good and taught me a lot about all topics on the exam. Topics in which I need to review before the exam include Multicast, OER, Redistribution and NAT.  Back to the Trenches!!

CCIE trenches are indeed rough

February 17, 2010

wow, its been about 3 months since i last updated my webpage, and it shows… anyway, almost done with Narbiks Labs and will be diving into Internetwork Experts labs next. I am about a week away from buying my 3550’s, when i get my tax return, then I’ll post some vids on my youtube webpage showing you all my Lab and how to set everything up from scratch. I can’t wait! So hang in there and I’ll update again when the lab is completely done and ready for the Volume 2 labs. Good luck with your studies!

By the way I have posted a lot more labs on my youtube webpage, so feel free to take a look at them:

Where have I been? BUSY!!

November 25, 2009

Well, I have been lost in the CCIE R&S lab world. Last week I completed Narbiks Advanced Technology Vol 3 Section. That is close to 200 pages of BGP. Talk about a lot of BGP. But thats cool, because I like BGP. Anyway, I am doing the Section on NAT right now. I hope to finish the Advanced Technology labs before the end of the year and review the material from them that I do not comprehend well.

As for my GNS3 Server, I finally have it up and running. It is running like a champ. I haven’t put it under a full load yet but i did test it with 12 routers and 11 EBGP connections. CPU utilization was less than %20. Also, I am running XP 64-bit. So for those that aren’t familiar with linux, don’t worry XP 64-bit can easily handle the fully CCIE lab with the following PC Specs:

Intel Q9550 processor,  4 GIG DDR3 RAM, MSI X48C Motherboard and Adaptec ANA-62044 quad port nics.

Also, on a side note. When I installed my quad port nics and rebooted my computer, windows XP 64-bit auto installed them. So no worries with the quad port nics, they are working just fine :]

I hope this helps those who are looking at a good GNS3 Server build. This build is exactly what I was looking for. I am now just waiting on purchasing 4 3550’s and my CCIE R&S lab will be complete. So stay tuned because I will be posting videos on my youtube channel ( on how to setup the pc and switches for the R&S lab.

Happy Holidays to Everyone!

Passed CCIE R&S Written

September 17, 2009

Well, I passed the CCIE R&S Written yesterday. Now I can finally dedicate all my time to doing labs. I think that is my best way that I learn, so I will continue to do labs and break stuff to find out what is going and why. Now I will buy my layer 3 switches and quad core computer to practice for the lab exam. I’ll keep you all posted.
