NMC DOiT Vol.2 Scenario 7 Day 3


I just locked up my stupid terminal server again. Man, I hate that thing. How can a company possibly ship a product where the SSH daemon just dies for no apparent reason, the only remaining option being to reboot it? Grr.

Anyway, I got the BGP done (with help from the answer key), and I was working on my global reachability checks before the terminal server broke. From there, I still have the following tasks remaining: Cat 3560 tasks (lots of QoS), configuring a router so that it can be remotely rebooted with an SNMP set, router buffer allocation, various security features to be applied to an internet-facing router without using ACLs, IPv6, frame-relay QoS, VTP, HSRP & NAT, and sparse-mode multicast. So there’s still 4-6 more hours of work I think, which I should be able to finish up tomorrow night or Saturday, temperamental terminal server permitting.
