Over the long course of my career I have heard many of my colleagues refer to these two terms interchangeably, although this is actually not true and may cost you a wrong answer on an exam such as Cisco’s CCNA or CCNP which could make the difference between you passing the exam or not. Let us take a look at the differences in these two terms. Continue reading “Ports VS Interfaces What Are The Differences” »
In this Free Cisco Lab Packet Tracer activity we will be troubleshooting route redistribution between Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Enhanced Inter Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and static routing protocols.
One of the most intimidating but extremely important subjects on the CCENT/CCNA or ICND1 exam is subnetting. We were all taught to think in decimal but computers think in binary and the idea of all those ones and zeros are just a bit overwhelming for most of us. A subnetwork, or subnet, is a subdivision of an IP network address providing multiple smaller networks. Subnetting is the practice of dividing a network IP address into two or more networks.
This lab covers a range of problems and requires that you make use of your troubleshooting skills to resolve the routing and switching problems introduced. This lab focuses on routing and switching connectivity issues related to EtherChannel, STP, OSPF, EIGRP, and ACLs.
