Welcome to ICND2!

00:00:00

Hello, my friends. My name is Jeremy Cioara, and I'd like to welcome you to the ICND2 series. Cisco's mission for you in this series is to graduate your skills from the small office, meaning typically single location that they had in mind for you in the CCNT world into the wide area network.

00:00:20

And once they've unleashed the WAN, you'll see a whole new dose of routing coming at you in the form of OSPF and EIGRP. You'll even dabble a little bit in the BGP realm, which is something I never thought I would see added to the CCNA certification content ever, because that is such a big protocol.

00:00:40

But you'll see you get a CCNAIs version of it later on in the series. You'll look at WAN architecture like PPP, and it's used for the old school dedicated lines. You'll dive into PPPoE, usually done with DSL connections. And PPB takes you in the direction of multilink and authentication, all kinds of stuff related to making the wide area network scalable and feature rich.

00:01:04

You'll see redundancy technologies like HSRP, enhanced monitoring with SNMP, IP SLA. I'm just dumping acronyms at you, because I literally on the other screen, I'm looking at all the content I just recorded. There's too much dimension. You can look at the course outline yourself.

00:01:23

I'm just hitting the major things that enhances your knowledge from the realm of CCENT. Now, the entire series was built through GNS3. And I know, if you're coming out of the ICND1 realm, you're thinking, Jeremy, you told me to buy physical equipment.

00:01:38

And that still remains my recommendation, but I get so many emails and Twitter tweets and messages from people around the world who are sometimes are stuck in situations where they just can't get the physical gear. Sometimes it's a financial thing. Sometimes it's just the location.

00:01:55

I've had people in the army that are literally studying on tanks, waiting for battle begins with a laptop. The stories that I have seen over the years working with CBT Nuggets has been astounding. So I thought, you know what? I'm going to build this entire series in GNS3 all the time.

00:02:13

You're going to hear the whole series laced with if you do this on physical gear, this is the mindset that you should use, because at the CCNA level, I still feel like, because I relate to myself. When I was studying CCNA, I didn't get the physical side of things until I had done it time and time and time again, cabling re-cabling.

00:02:33

OK. That's the switch. I've been in 100 different IT rooms and data centers and seen all the equipment. And even then, it's just, there's something that happens. And maybe it's just me more so than others, but there's something that happens in my mind when I see that physical connection between the network device and the logical configuration that I'm putting on it.

00:02:51

So that being said, the supplementary files that you'll find are very minimal for this, because I recommend building the GNS3 typologies throughout the series yourself. I used to take GNS3 and save my topology files and hand it out. And what I would find is two things-- one, people didn't learn as much, because they'd just take my pre-built typologies that already had all the IP addressing and LAN interfaces and everything configured and just run through a few commands to do the lab itself.

00:03:16

But second off, the topology files would quickly become obsolete. GNS3 continues to be developed, new features being added all the time. And so people would try to load the topology files, then they'd get error. And they end up spending more time trying to tweak my configuration files than just building it themselves inside of GNS3.

00:03:34

So the only supplementary files that you'll find in the series is a configuration that I wrote for a PPPoE server. One of the things that you'll do when we get into DSL wide area network connections is you'll have a router authenticate to a PPPoE device, which is supposed to emulate an internet service provider, allowing you DSL access.

00:03:56

This portion of the configuration is not part of ICND2. This portion is. So for that reason, I included the PPPoE server configuration as a downloadable file. So let me launch you into the series which starts with a massive review of ICND1 in the form of a rebuilding lab with how you can get the most out of this series.

00:04:20

Number one, repetition. Continue to go through the content again and again, watching, learning, and then eventually conquering. Just like I did in ICND1, I wrote just about every configuration in the form of a live lab. That means I give you the lab steps, and I give you the topology, and then I walk through it.

00:04:41

But I don't want you to stop there, just watching and learning the commands that I'm using to configure it. I want you to bring up those typologies, every single one of them. And I did not get as repetitious as I was back in ICND1 saying, OK, here's what I want you to do, because I'm assuming at this point you've got that mindset of watch, learn, and conquer, where your building the lab yourself, you're doing it.

00:05:01

That is truly the only way to soak in this content to where it becomes part of you. And you're able to do it yourself and troubleshoot it. This is an essential part of ICND2, whether you build the lab physically, you use GNS3, VIRL, or even now Cisco's Network Packet Tracer, which used to be only for the Network Academy, and then it got software pirated across the internet enough that Cisco finally said it's for everybody, and they released it free.

00:05:30

Getting the hands-on practice is huge, whether you're taking this and applying it to the job or going to pass a certification exam or both. Both are needed. Study hard, dig deeper, and I say fall in love, because I believe there really is no such thing as falling in love.

00:05:48

Love is hard work. The fact is, through this series, I guarantee you frustration. You're probably not going to get that from any marketing people, right? I guarantee you that you're going to start going, man, this is stupid. You just get so fed up because it's not going to work the way you think it should, and that's good.

00:06:09

It's when you hit those moments, you push through, you push through, the minutes turn to hours, you're going why is this not working? And then all of a sudden, it could be something simple or it could be something vastly complex, but you go, ah, there it is.

00:06:22

It's through that journey up the mountain that you reach that point where you're like that was awesome. It's just like when you finish a long race, you make a gourmet dish, you have a great marriage, you have happy kids, all of that takes a whole lot of passion and a whole lot of work.

00:06:40

It doesn't just happen. You don't just fall in love, whether it be with Cisco technology or anything else in your life. It's when you let that passion fade, and you stop working hard that Cisco technology or your workout routine or your marriage or anything else in life becomes blase and feels meaningless.

00:07:00

Those of you that took ICND1 with me remember probably a slightly different message that I delivered when I said here, probably one that was a little more bubbly and didn't have quite as many rough edges. But I'm talking to those that have gone beyond.

00:07:15

I know a lot of people went through ICND1. Maybe they missed the certification exam, and they just kind of stopped. So I'm talking to the people that have pushed through. You know that there's hard work involved. And I'm here to remind you that, yeah, there is, and it's so good as long as you keep your excitement and your drive stoked.

00:07:36

And you realize that there is no such thing as falling in love. There's only pushing yourself hard enough where something beyond just your mind engages. That, my friend, is how you get the most from not only this series but also your life. I hope this has been informative for you, and I'd like to thank you for viewing.
