The switching section of the ICND2 studying is not complete (for now) and I am on to routing protocols! ICND1 mostly focused on RIP v2 (distance vector), this time around we are looking at link state routing protocols specifically OSPF (Open Shortest Path First). Today’s topics covered the concepts of router summarization, areas and the contents of the OSPF hello packet.

CCNA/ICND2 studying has begun!

May 3rd, 2011 No comments

Ok, so I am a little late making this post, but I began studying for the CCNA exam about a week after passing the ICND1 exam (CCENT Certification). My wife requested that I take some time off as I was becoming a little excessive about studying.

So far I am about 1/3 of the way through the material on Topics covered include a full review of the ICND1 materials including some new basic management commands to make life a bit easier (I’m looking at you ‘do’ command). I’ve also covered VLANS, VTP and STP. This is the meat of cisco folks, the good stuff, time to dig in!
