Any other network heads out there? Why do people still think STP is the devil? The latest revision has been a total bro! Also, do you think colleges should be legally inclined to give their IPv4 addresses back to ARIN?
Cool thread man, I'm interested in the subject but don't know a ton about it besides what I need to do to set up for a LAN party or basic TCP/IP. Dunno if /g/ - Consumer General will be very interested though. What do you do for a job?
i've never had a problem with STP. who thinks it's the devil and why?
EIGRP on the other hand...
If I remember correctly, it's dealing with route distribution between OSPF and BGP protocols. Those routers are in a sense translating between external routes and internal routes.
I wish I still had my old Cisco books on hand. I really want to get back into this stuff.
This, OP please deliver
ill give it a try. but is there anything that does not require a virtual machine?
something that can simulate a network and network devices on its own?
does not to be a real accurate simulation.
Packet tracer is shit for simulating anything but the simplest topologies. It's barely adequate to learn CCNA.
Double down on learning GNS3 or buy a CCNP/CCIE lab kit to practice on.
