Again close to two weeks no update, but this time its due to my annual military service which is lasting until the end of this week. Even though I got time in the evenings Im too tired to focus on complexer stuff than watching TV 😀
Im looking forward to tomorrow when my service ends for this year and I can start writing acticles again. The stuff Im planing to do is quite similar to my last forecast:
- Lock and Key Security
- BGP Path Attributes
- IPSec Overview
- Virtual Tunnel Interfaces
- Testing Connectivity with TCL script and macros
- OSPF LSA types and areas
In addition to those topics, I will have to rewrite the VTP transparent mode description since the Cisco Documentation is not totally correct about the behavior of a switch in transparent mode (thanks to Paul from the groupstudy mailinglist), according to that I will show how a switch in transparent mode works in different scenarios.
A 2nd part of the BGP Path Attributes is also in work, this time its only the NEXT_HOP attribute but this needs a bit more love to show. Im pretty sure that the next attributes articles will come faster 🙂
Marking of DSCP values on 2960 seems to be another interesting thing, since it had a different behavior then I thought off.
Another idea I have is to write another challenge lab since it seems that the IGP one got quite a lot of hits (153 due to now). Just dont know what topic I should choose at the moment 🙂 Maybe someone got a wish about the topic?
Im sure there will also be some other stuff I’ll write depending on whats going on on the networking-forum or the different mailing lists, they are always a great source of ideas for new articles 😀
