Cisco SNRS course

Warning: geeky talk.This is what course “rack” looks like. Each student has his own “pod” (I have no idea why they call it that) which consists of a 2811 router, a 2960 switch and 2 laptops, which simulate a client and a server. The thing is pretty compact as you can see, the trainer only has to plug it into a socket for power then just hand out two network cables to each student.

The course is about securing Cisco devices (routers and switches), VPNs and ACS. I have already worked quite a bit with most of the technologies mentioned in the course so it comes a bit earier for me, I don’t think there will be any problems at the exam. As a “deadline” I have to pass the exam until end of March. I have to pass also the CCNA Security exam until end of March, new prerequisite for the CCSP certification. But I think it’s going to be ok too.

The main reason I came to this course is the lack of books on SNRS. For some weird reason, Cisco hasn’t published any books about the CCSP exams. All you can get is the study guides they hand out in the course, there is not much else. Or at least I could not find anything. If I would’ve found books about this I would’ve stayed home because most of the things in this course can be simulated in GNS3.

Well, back to the class ;-)

        Doing good mate.
        Yeah, still playing, Riku has pretty much gone though.
        Bunch of us still hang out in the directors channel if you pop on anytime.
        As for finding you, I thought I did quite well since I didn’t even know your name :-D

        Nah, you’d posted your blog link in the Riku forums

    Oh, the forum signature, forgot about that.

    I’ve heard about Riku, been following Morph’s blog. I would like to be able to come back but these days .. I don’t know, barely have time to breathe.

    Thanks for stopping by ;-)

    [:en]I guess that would be the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) certification. What does “discout” mean anyway ? ;-)[:ro]Presupun ca este vorba despre certificarea Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT). Ce inseamna totusi “discout” ? ;-)

  6. WD says:

    cred ca 20% (nu sunt sigur)

    Acum depinde cat costa cursul, da’ 20% nu e rau.
