Cisco CCNP Training – Bootcamp Roundup

So this post is mainly a big round-up of the day by day posts I made of my CCNP bootcamp notes.

Here is a list by topics covered each day to make it easier for you to jump into.

There is no TSHOOT posts at the moment, as the idea of TSHOOT is covered in ROUTE and SWITCH, however I will post something to do with troubleshooting in the future.

The training resources I used were

For my fancy Visio Diagrams, please find them on dropbox here. (I only ask that credit is given where used, as these were created by myself.) Examples below;

Cisco CCNP Training Course – Day 4 – ROUTE

Day 4 – Kind of, the course has mostly followed each of my post, however I have kind of mixed and match a few things so they flow better.

Also i’ve found out how to truncate my posts on the homepage, so it says, click here to read more, or something to that effect!

As you can imagine, something’s whilst labbing a few things, it can all get muddled.

Just one more quick note, I bought the revision materials from here https://www.ccnpguide.com

I’ve not had a change to look through them properly, but they are well set out and look like a fantastic quick revision guide with all the commands and tidbits of info you need for the exam.

So the topics that will be covered in this one are;

  • OSPF Summerization
  • OSPF Default Route
  • LSA/LSU Types
  • Special Areas (Stubby and Not-So-Stubby-Area)
  • OSPF Redistribution
  • Routing Protocol – Route Filtering
  • ACLs for route filtering
  • Route-Map for route filtering
  • Prefix-List for route filtering
  • Policy-Based Routing
  • IPv6
  • IPv6 with OSPFv3
  • IPv6 OSPFv3 Virtual-Link

Cisco CCNP Training Course – Day 3 – ROUTE

On to-day 3, most of you have probably noticed that I am posting these online a day behind when I actually take the class, which is helpful, as I spend the evening typing up my notes and building the topologies etc in Visio. It’s a good way to re-cap stuff.

So I cheated a bit on the last post as I stopped before OSPF, so we hit all the main points in one big go.

So heres a quick summary of what will be covered in this post;

  • OSPF
  • OSPF Timers
  • Packet Types
  • Hello Packet
  • OSPF Convergence
  • OSPF Convergence Troubleshooting
  • Router ID
  • OSPF Virtual-Link
  • OSPF Authentication
  • DR/BDR Concept
  • Point-to-Point Links
  • Broadcast Multi-Access Network
  • Non-Broadcast Multi-Access Network
  • Point-to-Multipoint
  • Point-to-Point Subinterface

Cisco CCNP Training Course – Day 2 – ROUTE

So lets dive into Day 2,

One of the things I will also aim to do is re-create the topologies in Packet Tracer and upload the files for your use at some point in the future, here’s what we covered today;

  • EIGRP Cont…
  • EIGRP Authentication
  • EIGRP Summerization
  • EIGRP route propagation
  • EIGRP Stub Networks
