CCIE Security Challenge – Days 43,44,45 of 120 – Hands On Madness!

By Anthony Sequeira on July 11th, 2012

I have begun a major Hands on Madness portion of my studies after a big period of reading.

Here are some random observations I wanted to share with those of you following this journey:

  • I am using primarily ProctorLabs.com for my gear – they are so awesome; when I cannot get on there, I use GNS3 and stick to simple three router-capable topics
  • I a being very careful about a problem that I developed in doing this for my first CCIE – Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – braces and stretching seem to be doing the trick
  • I will be sure to do some posts here when I get to some more interesting lab exercises that have some cool “a ha!” moments to share
  • For lab exercise materials, I am using the excellent IPexpert workbooks, the Yusuf practice labs, and I look forward to editing the Micronics Training lab materials as I practice them – thank you so much Narbik for that amazing opportunity
  • As I practice at the command lines – I am working on taking my skills assessment tracker for the appropriate item to the level 4 and level 5 degrees; remember, I consider a level 4 that I can configure the feature easily at the command line without the DOC-CD, and a level 5 degree indicates that I can troubleshoot the feature

      Hi Anthony,

      thank you for very helpful blog post series. I’m wondering why are you using ASA Config Guide and syntax (like crypto ikev1 …) for 8.2 version? I think that version used in lab is 8.0.

      How many hours a day you spend studying?

      BTW: I have a lab scheduled exactly on same date as you.

      Thanks,

      Karel V.

        Hi Karel!

        Yeah – I messed that up – I was using a source for study there that had the 8.2 syntax. I am back on track now! Thank goodness. Now just to stay on track. :-)

        My hours of study per day have been varying from 0 to 4 hours. As I get closer – I will start to do full labs and take it some days to 12 hours! It hurts my hands just to think about it.

        Let us pass Version 3 on that day my friend!
