    Home Server Room

    Yep, its the AP9212. I scored five of them around 2 years ago for under $300 bucks(total) and it was a steal at the time. UI is almost identical to that of the newer units as well. The reason I picked these up was that they had the NEMA-5-15p as opposed to the L5-15/20. You can score some nice...

    Server room temp monitoring system?

    disagree, capex is lower but opex will be 10 fold more with a computer + usb probe. Idd stick with the more expensive extremely lower power solution :)

    Cisco gurus: transparent firewall w/ redirection

    Again, I think that you need to be far more clear with the requirements. If you are looking to simply forward ALL user traffic to a specific traffic filtering solution PBR or WCCP would get you that assuming that you control the interface that this user traffic will traverse(so you can place...

    Home Server Room

    different iterations are in the network pics thread, this is the most recent. This supports a lab, full functional cisco phone system(cucm, unity, cups, ccx), mcast network over gre bgp tunnels with a few friends to share DNLA content, WLC for lwapps(local and hreap)

    Cisco gurus: transparent firewall w/ redirection

    A router can VLAN? huh? You mean create sub-interfaces? PBR might have worked if you can base your policy to match a customer subnet that you own, but it doesn't sound like you want to do this as you say its based off specific traffic. If you are just looking for a solution to redirect traffic...

    Questions about getting used Cisco 6500

    Dude, stop seeking peoples approval on these forums... You're not going to get it. If you want to buy it, buy it.... but I wouldn't expect anyone, except for dash(and only because he doesn't know anything about networking), to tell you to go for it. If you have the money, why not... waste it. At...

    Questions about getting used Cisco 6500

    I feel like I should post, only because Im one of those people that do use a "huge modular switch" at home. Do I have lots of them, yes! Did I pay for any of them, not a one! and thats probably my only reason Im using one of them for my home network(the 4500). With that said, heres how I see...

    Network pics thread

    Ofcouse you're going to need to implement IDF's, this wasn't my point. Again, not my the point I was trying to make. My point was that it looks like you have cabinets for these switches, which are expensive, and it looks like you only appear to be mounting 5 switches and some patch panels...

    22 cabinets that are similar to that? pretty wasteful, someone needs to learn the proper dynamics of airflow and hot/cold isle. Perhaps this is why you have all the siemon boxes stuff in between the 3750s? Still, having 22 racks to house less than 10 switches per rack is retarded, but hey...
