    Studying for my CCNA (finally)

    So I finally decided to nut up and get my CCNA. Doing fairly well with my home lab, but just for shiggles I decided to try and get GNS3 working, and it quickly reminded me why I ended up buying my physical gear.

    Is it just me or is GNS3 the biggest pile of shit ever made? Grabbed some IOS images and tried to get shit working, but it's an exercise in futility.

    It's not the end of the world, I just figured it would be nice when I'm not sitting at home in front of my stack of gear.

    I had good luck with this:

    Only used GNS3 a handful of times. I assume you've looked into VIRL? It's pretty reasonably priced.

    Hadn't heard of VIRL. Don't think I'd spend the cash on it given I already have my lab, but maybe my manager would spring for it if there's any other interest in my team for studying up on network stuff.

    I don't know what any of these means, save that I figured it was concealed carry when I saw the headline, but realized it couldn't be when I saw who posted it because you're Canadian...


    But, how the fuck have you been, buddy?

    I've been studying up on my ABC's, too. I found this reference handy:

    I'll be going for that VIRL. I stayed away from Cisco in the past, because I didn't really have a proper test environment. That could be helpful.

    I still have a ways to go on MCSE though, and then VCP following that.

    Haha, been good, just living life and working away. CCNA is a certification for Cisco network gear, the entry level one.

    Also, we technically have concealed carry in Canada, but you don't have a hope in hell of getting it unless you're extremely politically connected and grease the right palms.
