    DMVPN/mGRE Video Multicast Question(s)

    So even though its multicast, the hub would have to send 3 individual streams to 3 spokes and use x3 bandwidth on its end? I thought it would just be one stream from the hub to the 3 individual destinations?

    When I worked at an internet provisioning company, the manager insisted on a CCNA because he knew that to get it required a good amount of knowledge of networking and the concepts, we had no Cisco stuff in the work at all. It was all HP, and Dell stuff.

    Does a switch really need to be this complicated?

    LOL a 5 computer small business and they had 3560s? Someone must either have a really bad IT guy or some deep pockets. For 5 PCs a simple router and a switch will do fine. Those are more for like large businesses with tons of users, those features are more for when you're dealing with larger...

    Are these PSU's Any Good?

    I would honestly have a colonoscopy over a Dynex. We carried Dynex 480Watts in our store, we sold about ~15 of them and 10 of them came back bad. They were so light you couldn't even bludgeon someone to death with it.

Yes IP routing is pretty easy its just "ip route to get here + subnet mask go here, or go out here" RIP is basically "the routing...
