I’ve been experimenting with twitch streams lately too, I’m getting less bad at it!

it's not easy right! Take's a while to get the overlays, audio etc all correct

Yup there may or may not have been some growing pains.

We'll see how the next stream goes :)

only for the exam :) ... thanks

No you need to know it for your security career, DH is in any VPN you will make on any vendor :)

Anything in the exam is expected knowledge in the work place!

show me an engineer that doesn't cross reference materials prior to applying a change ... and i'll show you an engineer that makes mistakes.

In my humble opinion, looking up the IKEv1 DH groups is about the same as pulling out a subnet calculator for a /24, seeing a person do that would not fill me with confidence of their position. A CCNA Security really should not have any issue with a standard site to site vpn.

Though sure, there is nothing wrong with prepping for a change provided its planned and not an emergency situation.

Aside from missing on the PoE commands you won't lose anything. Though keep in mind Cisco phones don't come with power adapters so you need to pick them up separately if you want.

If power is a concern you can do IP Communicator for a virtual phone that mirrors a 7900 phone pretty well.

You can certainly get a junior level job with only a CCNA since it is the de facto junior level cert. But you also have to remember that the CCNA is expected in most networking jobs so no one is going to beat your door down to give you an interview. You need to get your resume out there and start making networking connections with recruiters and industry people in your area.

As for other certs, keep in mind that juniors are expected to be juniors. Getting more certs can actually make it harder for you to get a job because it can make you appear overqualified or more interested in other fields (such as if you get a MCSE I might think you want a sysadmin job and skip your resume)

I’m always surprised this question keeps popping up.

7th edition is like 2-3 versions from the current one, reading it will give you a 0% chance of passing outside of the most basic core knowledge. Even where there is topic overlap the info will be out of date enough to cause you problems.

You’ll need to make a new policy set that matches the remote admin connections such as service type virtual, and then make your policy to match based on your criteria like certain groups. Tacacs is preferred for the authorization side of things but radius is quite common for authentication.

While all you technically need is a basic radius server like Windows NPS or freeradius etc + a CA, you will likely find that the lack of a central authentication will make things a painful.

You might want to consider using Meraki (or some other cloud based AP like UBNT) to offload the 802.1x complexity.

It is mostly there because it is a learning aid that helps you get IP addressing and its history, and also the fact that you can still encounter classful in the wild...all it would take is forgetting no auto on your RIP config and you are advertising classful.

If only a manufacturer had the ability to make "no auto" come on automatically when a routing protocol is provisioned. I hear that they actually DID have that power, but could only do it once in the history of the Universe, and EIGRP got chosen instead.

the-packet-thrower 1 point

Ah yes I remember the great battle of "no auto" in the end there could only be one winner

only took two years, but people who looked at me like a crank when I started ranting P4 was the future have stopped looking at me like a crank these past few months :-D

DC is one of the most advanced/hardest Cisco tracks, I wouldn't' recommend going for this without hands on and CCNP level R&S knowledge.

Saying that, no harm in flipping through the book or playing with VIRL.

I've aced or nearly aced quite a few exams and likewise I have barely passed others, so you can indeed get any score.

Saying that we don't see any value in validating such things here. Sure someone could claim to ace the CCNA when they barely passed but ultimately it doesn't matter and if the person is weak in their comments then they will probably get called out for it eventually.

To take it to the extreme, a person could simply say they are a 8 x CCIE but really the worse thing would be they might get some unearned praise/respect and may give bad advice...at least until people figure out they aren't trustworthy.
