    For those of you who migrated from Cisco to Juniper...

    So I've been made an offer I couldn't refuse to leave corporations for a bit and join a smaller financial firm with a hell of a lot less politics. No regrets on starting where I did, I learned more there than I ever thought I could in just 2 years. Having said that, I came from a huge Cisco...

    The countown to my CCIE lab has began today (Passed CCIE Written!)

    930/1000. I didn't think it was that bad, honestly, I thought it was almost fun. Mind you, there were quite a few times where I was thinking "Why the $%#@%#@ did they ask this?" Time and time again during the exam, all my practical experience and lab work paid off, but talking with xphil3...

    Juniper SRX5600 (new toy!)

    Full services router with 60Gbps firewall capability and up to 350,000+ new TCP connections per second. http://www.juniper.net/products_and_services/srx_series/ Guess they're trying to compete with the Cisco ASR. Haven't had much time to play with this thing lately, but I'm looking...

    Should I go straight for CCIE R&S?

    Hey all. I am fortunate enough to work on what I believe to be one of the largest networks in the world (I won't say exactly how many routers and switches, but it's way more than 50,000). Needless to say, the network covers just about anything (MPLS, BGP, OSPF, EIGRP, IS-IS, MSDP...) on just...

    Privilege 15 login not working?

    Hello, I can't seem to get privilege 15 working on a Cisco 3750G switch. It doesn't even matter if I disable ssh and enable telnet instead -- it still doesn't work. Here are sections of the run config that matter: phys#sh run | i username username admin secret 5 <PASSWORD> username...

    Need some advice... Ultra X-Connect Failing (Shocked?)

    So, this is actually my second Ultra. I participated in one of those $20 AR deals well over one year ago, and received a 500W X-Connect power supply. I liked the modularity of the device, and was pretty pleased for about 4 months until it completely died. None of the fans or LEDs would even turn...

    Strange networking request (VPN related)

    So, I have DD-WRT running on my router at my apartment..and it's great. I recently enabled the VPN server (PPTP protocol) and it works well. However, my college leaves the wireless AP's open, and instead uses a Cisco VPN (IPSec) to authenticate. The problem is this...I'm trying to do the...

    I present to you, the Jer-la-pita!

    Mods...feel free to move this as I don't really know where I should have put it. Technically, it is a modification...but not for cases. Anyway, due to the amount of PMs I've been receiving of people being interested in how to build this, I've decided to create a thread dedicated to my (easy)...

    Ultra X-Connect PSU failure?

    Hey, You might remember my johnny - I was the dumbass who had the motherboard connector slightly out of place causing the 3.3 rail to be very low. However, this time I unplugged everything except the motherboard connector and the CPU power and made sure it was very tight. When I flick the...

    Well well well...my UltraX PSU is failing badly

    Yes, I know. All of you told me so. I'm not looking to get flamed here. Yes, I know. "Software readings don't mean anything". Well, when I got this PSU, it was within 1% of all voltages and my computer was rock hard stable. Now, my computer becomes unstable every 15 minutes or so -...
