I don't understand this one.  Why do you have to allow ICMP to pass to the inside interface?

© Group Policies Objects (GPOs) are collections of user and computer configuration settings that can be linked to computers, sites domains and organisational units (OUs) to specify the behaviour of users? desktops.  By default, they are applied hierarchically from the least restrictive (upper levels) to the most restrictive group and are cumulative.  Describe the settings that can be applied to group policies that override the default behaviour (e.g. a computer that is part of a work group would only process its local GPO).

  Passed April 3rd 877
Posted by: segesublime - 04-04-2009, 06:18 PM - Forum: CCNP ENARSI 300-410 - Replies (2)

I had three Labs and one Simlet:

Labs -
ISIS/EIGRP Redistribution
IPV6 Virtual Links

Simlet -
EIGRP Topology Output

This is the first time that I have ever taken a certification test and in the first 10 minutes thought I would fail.  I had about 20 questions I had never seen before, tons of multicasting. I got so shaken in the first 10 minutes, I didn't even answer the Virtual Links lab-just completely skipped it cause I was stressed and didn't slow down and think.

This is also the first time I had not checked these forums prior to my test - big mistake but my fault.

But, I somehow passed and the ospf and redistribution labs were easy along with EIGRP sim. All I did was read the Cisco Press book and H2P. This was the hardest test I had to take so far.

Make sure you know the theory and it does help to know how to read the command outputs!

  Passed BSCI today April 3rd with a 833
Posted by: ciscomon - 04-03-2009, 10:33 PM - Forum: CCNP ENARSI 300-410 - Replies (1)

Passed BSCI today with a 833 for my second time recertifying my CCNA/CCDA/CCDP/CCNP.

This is the second time I used HOW2PASS and it didn't disappoint. The forum is a big assist to.
I bought the current 4th edition Cisco CCNP BSCI Exam  Certification book to. 
Also used all the free testing engines I could find on the internet but only paid for HOW2PASS since I used them the first time I certified.

Had 3 labs and 1 simlet same as "BAMF"
  OSPF Stub
  ISIS/EIGRP Redistribution
  IPV6 Virtual Links
  EIGRP Topology Output.

Thanks to the posting by "BAMF" to look out for the IPV6 Virtual Link lab.
I found a link which is all you need to understand to configure it.

Seemed also to have allot of questions on BGP and multicasting.
Spent two months studying. I suggest take the exam in the afternoon and cram for it in the morning, thats what I did.

Posted by: Random73 - 04-02-2009, 05:53 PM - Forum: Exam Experience - Replies (3)

Today I just passed the CCNA exam getting 916 which is roughly about 94.5%

I would say that knowing your sims are going to stand you in good stead (don`t forget the Nat sim in the hands on labs) I had the Nat sim , router settings ,frame-relay and switch simlet

There was also 3 ipv6 questions but 2 of them are covered on here and the other you can learn from reading up on ipv6

this site has been a great help in prep but I also completed the instructor run exploration course

stick at it and remember that if you are feeling the pressure on a question take a sit back for 5 seconds

oh and also you can use the ? in the exam simlets not like on here  ;D ;D

good luck everyone

Posted by: maveric - 04-01-2009, 05:39 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

Hello All
THis summer I am thinking of doing certifications of CCNA and CNNP. I have the following question.
1)Should I just prepare for CCNP or should I first do CCNA and thne start CCNP.
2)Is it possible to do both CCNa and CCNP in three months(in summer I am free). If yes, how should I go about, assuming I will be studying on my own.
Your help will be appreciated a lot!!

  Passed today 889, not an easy one
Posted by: lunchsnotfree - 03-31-2009, 11:47 PM - Forum: CCNP SWITCH 300-115 - No Replies

Lots of STP questions including a couple of simlets and a simulation that involves bridge & port priority configuration changes from console. Plus the VTP and VLAN labs. I got 50 questions but first 8 questions took me 35 minutes to complete and only a few minutes to spare in the end.

I didn't get any VACL or Radius labs as others may have had, but STP is definitely crucial. Anyway, considering that I took the test only after 3 weeks of preparation with h2p's help, I am pretty happy with the score ;D

I used ciscopress BCMSN book plus some reading materials for 802.1x and Wireless LAN.

Going for BSCI in 3 weeks.

  qid:ne34 why IGRP?
Posted by: baloo247 - 03-31-2009, 03:49 PM - Forum: CCNP ENARSI 300-410 - Replies (1)

i got two of them but select the rip v1 one over IGRP.

this is the passive-interface question. My understanding is that passive interface dont send out routing info but will still recieve routing updates.

ok so i understand why the RIP one wont work - it's becuase of the passive interface deault which means rip routes not being sent out of s0/1 to rtc so rtc wont know how to get to RTA.

but ...

in teh IGRP config we also have passive interface enable with the no passive on s0/1 ??? so igrp goes out of s0/1 but how will rta know about rtc if s0/0 is passive which is the link to RTA? surely s0/0 should be no passive as well????
