    no... NOT UoIT...they have other stuff....suppose to have more to do with IT Security.

    UOIT has network and security specializations. They offer a masters degree in Information Security which is awesome.

    So what school do you attend that has such nick racks

    Default Current lab

    So this is my current lab set up I switched a lot of things up. I tried keeping the pictures somewhat identifiable...


    http://www.infiltrated.net/Mar2520072.jpg
    http://www.infiltrated.net/Mar2520073.jpg
    http://www.infiltrated.net/Mar2520074.jpg

    In order...

    Cisco 7960 (4 total 1 pictured)
    2 Cisco Netscouts (1 pictured (e1t1) GBSX not pictured...)
    Pix 506e
    2521
    2610
    2 4500M's (1 w/4port Eth, 4pt Ser... 1 w/TokR... Eth, etc)
    3 3810's (all with DSP modules, 2 w/FXS modules, all with T1/E1's)
    1 2524 2 serials & ISDN (I have all other modules)
    1 2501
    1 3620

    ... Fore ES3810 pictured I use with a Catalyst 5000 switch I have that I barely turn on... Too noisy...

    Not pictured... 2 Juniper Netscreen 5XT's, 2 2501's, 1 3640 (too noisy)...

    For those buying their labs... This is the breakdown of what I paid... (Not kidding either)

    $ 0.00 7960's I got from work (I work at a VoIP company)
    $ 40.00 Netscout's. I bought them for packet analysis for security stuff on the side... Each cost me under $5.00 I paid like 15 in shipping each
    $150.00 Pix 506e ... Bought it from a client who upgraded to 515's
    $ 35.00 2524 on eBay during xmas... Included shipping. I bought all modules during the same week. All three for $10.00 plus $5.00 in shipping... Router was untested and sold for like $3.00 (not kidding)
    $ 45.00 for both 4500m's via eBay.
    $100.00 3620 buy now during xmas via eBay. No modules... I have a WIC-T1 and 56/64k DSU I bought for both $70.00
    $51.00 for both the 2521 and 2610 with shipping included. The seller on eBay saw memory errors... Would have helped to open them. They didn't have memory. Memory for both maxed out... $80.00
    $25.00 - 40.00 for the 3810's.
    $30.00 Catalyst 1924... For a lot of 6 Catalysts with cracked frames... Do I care if they're cracked? Nope. Do they work... Yup...
    $10.00 Fore 3810 switch... Not a Cisco lab piece of equipment...

    If I had to put a high amount of the amount spent for everything you see... I still got it all for under $800.00

    You guys have some slick and extremely complex looking setups. Mine may seem fairly rudimentary for now, but it grows by the day

    Equip: 2x 2620 Routers, 2x 2950 Cats

    Setting it up is easy... The security rules kill me @ times. E.g. On router 8... Configure embryonic sessions for 132 seconds from R6 only at noon. Configure filtering without using ACL's from say router 6 to router 5[/img]

    Half open. One of the other things I have to keep in mind is the restricted use of filtering at times. E.g.: advertise r6's loop0 (66.66.66.66/24) only if r4's entry is absent from the the bgp table on r6 WITHOUT USING filter lists, prefix lists or distribute lists...

    One that took me a while was to configure a router behind my pix to peer using md5 with another outside of the Pix... Sound simple?

    Router1 via BGP (md5 hashed packet with specific sequence number) --> Pix --> Router2

    What happens? Router1 --> Pix (sequence number changes) --> Router2 (what you talking about Willis)

    Fix? nonrandomseq. Took me a whopping 4 books to skim through, CCO reading, and kicking my Pix to figure it out.

    Some nice labs here. I just liquidated my lab to eBay

    Cisco 3560
    Cisco 3548G
    Cisco IDS 4215
    Cisco PIX501
    Cisco 2950-24 SX
    Cisco BBSM


    My favorite mount for switches is the Black Box wall mount bracket. Simply the best.

    As replied above, i used Visio... A neat handy little program for those who want a free one is Network Notepad http://www.networknotepad.com/

    I have to really update pictures though... Ive since changed stuff around and will be ridding myself of all 25xx series... My house is starting to become a mess.. My lab now consists of....

    3 2612's
    1 2610
    2 4500-m's (1 w/2 NP-4T's & 6 port Eth the other with w/1 ATM 1/6port Eth 1/NP-4T)
    2 3620's (1 w/NM-8A/S other with NM-2E and serial wics)
    3 3810v's
    2 3550's (cat's)
    2 1924 (cat's)
    1 Cat5000 w/ATM modules...
    3 7960's (mainly because of work... but I do sidebar CCVP studying too)
    1 2524
    1 2521
    2 2501's
    2 Netscouts (1 fiber, 1 eth)
    1 506e Pix

    I have all serials for all models and an 8port serial on one 3620... I have too many wic's to list... I think I surpassed my work lab at this point... Only difference between my work lab and home is, I have VoIP FXS and FXO wics and modules for the 3620's at work...

    No more buying for me though... I just got the 2612's because the 25xx series wouldn't push the IOS version I need. I had been looking for the VPN concentrator but I keep getting outbid and I don't feel like spending 1 grand on it. I will take some updated (wired) pics next week.

    NON CISCO BUT SEMI RELATED
    Forerunner 3810 ATM Switch
    2 Juniper 5XT's
    1 Sonicwall Pro 2040
    2 Polycom 501's
    1 Snom 360
    1 Netra T1 (used as my TACACS+ server)

    SIDE NOTES
    For those looking for a rack... (I know I was) I went into a store near me called Guitar Center and bought a 20u case usually for recording equipment for 69.99 complete with pre-drilled holes. It's not enough space, but I improvised

    Those looking to keep book costs down... http://www.bestbargainbook.com/ I get most of my books here... Search Cisco... And not $0.99 for a Cisco Press book is not a misprint... Most of the 15 or so books I've gotten from them have actually been in excellent condition

    You know... I've come to the conclusion I probably have more equipment than most SoHo companies, and little ISP's...

    http://www.infiltrated.net/AprilLab/April28th009.jpg
    http://www.infiltrated.net/AprilLab/April28th010.jpg
    http://www.infiltrated.net/AprilLab/April28th011.jpg

    Pictured... (bottom to top)

    Netscout T1/E1 Probe
    4500-M
    3620
    3620
    4500-M
    3810
    3810-V
    Fore ES-3810 (ATM)
    2501
    3810-V
    2524
    1924
    2610
    (under the books)
    2521
    Pix 506e



    Not pictured are 3 26xx's since I'm waiting for more NM-8A's (I have 3) and one NM-4A, 2 35xx's (Catalyst) my Netscout Fiber tap, or my cat 5000. Besides I'm lacking space right now... And like a dozen books since I have them in my bag, @ work, in the kitchen, in the bathroom. Sad isn't it... On a side note, (different posting), its good to see I'm not the only "dinosaur" here ... Anyone who remembers coinop Tron, Bezerk, Missile Command, Atari's 2600 and 5200 ... (34)

    Lazy man's note... I'll be running the entire lab via wireless after its wired up... So I don't have to hear all of the noise. @ Work I have about 6 routers within 1 1/2 feet of me, 4 switches including an LS1010, ISDN simulator, 4 CCM's, a Sun E450, 280r, and other stuff... ... What? ... What? ... What? Yes my hearing is getting bad...

    Indeed it is a lot. Right now I've been waiting and waiting before I dish out money on the VPN concentrators I'm eyeing two IDS' on eBay itching but waiting. Seems like the concentrators are selling like hotcakes and after speaking with someone about them kind of made sense. Since IE security is one of the hottest certs (according to experts...?), a lot of people have been snagging them up. Right now I'm see-sawing between dishing out on an ASA or the concentrators... I'm figuring by next spring I will take the written (wanted to this July but the update threw me for a loop), then plop out cash for a bootcamp along with my studies and then test my luck @ the lab.

    Foundry@! Sadly we just ordered another versus a Cisco... I got a purchase order for:

    CISCO7609 (1)
    WS-CAC-2500W (2)
    WS-SUP720 (2)
    WS-X6408-GBIC (1)
    WS-G5484 ( 8 )
    WS-X6182-2 (1)
    PA-T3 (1)
    PA-MC-4T1 (1)
    MEM-MSFC3-1GB (2)
    SMARTNET-S 1 CON-SNT-7609 (1)

    After discounts... +60k... My supervisor said ... No way. I pushed for an M60... No way... My co-worker loves Foundry so he did an equiv spec more or less and pushed it through. Its solely for redundancy... for my our SBC's (http://www.infiltrated.net/mydesk/nCite.jpg) which by the way I found I could DoS to oblivion... (another story... and not a public one) Mr. Darby... I admire most of the things you post as do I most of those taking the CCIE... Helps me look forward to the day I can call myself a certified pimp Post those pix!

First stop tho... 5 more serials and the NM-4A... The concentrator will be my birthday gift to myself (July) so I will hold off till full blown summer. Hopefully other CCIE candidates will be too busy with the beach to bother ... On that note... For others reading this... My favorite time for ebay buys are on holidays... E.g., XMas day I walked off of ebay w/a 3620 for 60+ shipping... Valentines... one of my 3810v's for 20+ shipping... There is some guy near me with another 4500m for $20 but I have no need for it... So for those building labs, read Darby's building your lab post, as well as do some deep searching... I was also fortunate enough to get my Cat5000 for free. There is a comp recovery (www.repocompany.com) not far from me... They had a couple of skids outside with a "grab what you can we need to make space" freebie so I snagged it. I saw a Unisphere chassis but figured the missus would make me live in it ...

    I'm thinking once you hit the CCIE level home labs, you get to start your own thread..... maybe a post per rack or picture. I'd include pictures of my books and coffee cup as part of my CCIE Lab.

    Oh -- and Darby -- time spent taking and posting pictures is time you're not studying for the lab exam..... now if you can get your wife to take and post the pictures, then that would be okay. But if you're doing it as a study break between practice labs, than that is okay I guess.

    You're right... I know I would be intimidated... In fact sometimes I get intimidated... Fred Baker @ Cisco intimidated me when he answered a question I shoot off at him regarding MPLS (RFC stuff) Completely schooled me on a theory I had... Let's see who else... Anyone with more than 3 CCIE's usually intimidates me although I have to say Scott Morris is a kick ass cool guy! ... Mike... You scare me ... Your cert count is longer then my monitor could handle
