    Default CCNP ROUTE Lab manual from the Cisco Academy

    Anyone know if this is a good (and legitimate) resource. I'm guessing that since Cisco keeps the link active on their website that it's ok to distribute. The copyright says it is public info and can be distributed for non-commerical use.

    It looks like the lab manual for the Networking Academy.

    The labs from the networking academy helped me out a lot for the CCNA, so this is quite valuable. Thanks for the post!

    Since they are coming from cisco's website and I have access to the download I guess it's ok to download, but still not sure...

    If the company has it publicly available on their website, and you don't have to go through any access controls to get to it, then you're fine, the only course of action they have is to pull the material. It's not like it's a brain dump, and honestly, all of the information in those guides is also freely available through their configuration and reference guides, it's just packaged a little better for students. Enjoy the bounty.

    Well when I was looking at the other files they have by changing numbers on the link there was CCNP_TSHOOT_642-832_Official_Certification_Guide with ciscoguide.com stamped on the first page. As if those were files Users uploaded to a forum

    Lab the manual a few times and any lab seen on the exam shouldn't be a problem.

    I have both the hardcopy and the PDF. The hardcopy often tells you to copy text from the electronic copy. Not possible as there is no included CD with the book so maybe that's why Cisco provided the free downloads. Anyhow, feel free to download. Me, I'm happy with my hardcopy. Less screens to switch to.

    I've been trying to find Labs. Thank you

    +Rep for you.

    It's found on Google as well and downloadable through google so there shouldn't be a problem with it.

    awesome find!
    although it looks like it is some kind of "glitch", because all 3 files save with the same filename.

    Thanks for the rep...I would have had a hard time passing ROUTE without that lab manual...it gets you into the mindset that Cisco uses when they test as far as config and verification. It is an invaluable resource. I'm using the same doc for SWITCH and will find out soon if it is as helpful as ROUTE.

    Well, the first lab with the tch scripting blew my mind. It was so awesome!

    Man. Im glad I decided to keep on going, so far CCNA seems like a boring time compared to this lab book.

    Actually CCNP ROUTE book gave a different impression of "You're a professional, you're no longer that guy stuck in the back IT room, think like one, act like one, get invovled in the network like one." Atleast, that's what I took from Chapter 1, and the forwords. Different experience than CCNA laid out. I'm going to need to get out of my Khakis and get into dress slacks :P

    Im sneaking pieces of the lab in while working on a deadline that's due today >.> Gah. Imaging + last minute, urgent projects. :\

    Not to mention the office flooded this morning so im sipping on Monster while trying to talk to the plumber, imaging, and labbing. Fun times.

    You're right, seems like a good manual. Only thing that is annoying me (only a few labs in) is haveing to reconfigure the routers every lab. I wish they would use the same subnets as much as possible for links etc. Seems like spending 2 hours studying, and 1 hour of it is spent assigning IP's to interfaces/removing configuration from the last lab!

    I found that infuriating - so I tried to incorporate each lab with the objectives of the next one. I'd try to achieve the objectives with the topology I had, adding to it if I couldn't. I found that you think a bit more about what you are trying to achieve this way too.

    One thing that may help with this is to create separate base config files for each separate lab, and then create batch files that drop the new lab files into the directory your topology file is looking for the base configs.

    I have a friend that built a single lab topology that conforms to all the labs in that manual. I can save my topology and configs as I am working on each lab, then I use a batch file that wipes the configs and loads a baseline config that I saved in another directory. It should be easy enough to duplicate this batch file once for every lab, and just edit the "pre-load" config path dependent on the particular lab you are dealing with.

    The basic logic of the batch file is simple:

    Here is the batch file I run before each new lab (+ reload all routers)


    cd C:\CCNP\Topologies\working-configs\ (Current working directory)
    del *.* /Q
    copy "C:\CCNP\Topologies\base-configs\*.*" "C:\CCNP\Topologies\configs"


    This deletes your current working configs, and replaces them with the configs in the directory you point it to.

    Expand this logic to the entire lab book, and just copy each lab's "pre-load" sequence from each lab, edit out the extraneous text, and customize the batch file with a different name for each lab. You should end up with a slightly different batch file for each lab that points to a different set of pre-load config files.

    I really should get around to doing the entire pre-load sequence batch files for each lab and putting it up somewhere for everyone to work with. Maybe we can work cooperatively on this, since everyone uses this lab manual so much?

    Please let me know if this post is not clear, and I will try to help.

    Do you have a copy of that single lab topology? I think that would perk everyone's (definitely mine!) interest

    The labs have (max) about twenty IP addresses and subnet masks to configure. If it's simply a matter of typing, even if you're a slow typer, this is a task that should take around 3-5 minutes. If it's taking you an hour, or even a quarter of an hour, perhaps it's a good thing you're getting extra practice subnetting and assigning IP addresses. The whole purpose of the lab is to provide practice so you're capable of doing these things quickly and efficiently!

    Or copying and pasting the configs from the PDF into a text editor, changing the interface names/format and pasting them into the CLI.
